Famous for its Kingaroy peanuts the South Burnett region has been flourishing as a wine and food destination and in 2001 was declared one of Queensland's official wine regions. In 2003, it became Queensland's largest grape crush region, easily outstripping all other Queensland wine regions. The South Burnett Wine & Food In The Park Festival is a showcase for the South Burnett's wineries.
