On your way out west along the D'Aguliar Highway, you will pass through Nanango. However please stop and look closer. You can begin by stopping at the peanut van, where you can buy fresh peanuts along with peanuts of many different flavours.
Nanango is the 2nd largest town in the South Burnett and the 4th oldest town in QLD, established in 1848. Its heritage is represented by Ringfield House, circa 1908. It's a magnificent turn of the century Queenslander on the corner of Alfred St and Cairns St. It is open Mon - Fri 9 am till 3 pm. Entry is $5 and you can enjoy delicious food from their cafe. Sit out on the veranda to enjoy the gardens.
Every 1st Saturday of the month, at their showgrounds, they hold the largest market in South Burnett. More than 300 stalls are there for you to peruse. In good times, it can be up to 400. Plenty of easy parking. Sadly other much loved annual events are put on hold for now. However, for some thrills, the Go-Kart track is open.
Around the town, there are 13 well-maintained parklands which naturalists believe are the home to 250 different species. With so many QLD caravan owners now confined to QLD and NT these parks will be of great interest as they slowly make their way around the states.
