Taste South Burnett on Australia’s Country Way

Discover Kingaroy , Nanango, Yarraman and Goomeri on Australia’s Country Way

THE South Burnett is know for growing peanuts, so it’s not surprising that you find peanut vans in Kingaroy and nearby Nanango. They stock all kinds of peanut products fresh from the red soil of the South Burnett.

Equally famous in the South Burnett is pork with the large Swickers Bacon factory and SunPork. Call into one of the South Burnett butcheries to try the local product. We dropped into the Gourmet Butchery in Kingaroy to taste their range of pork products; they claim to have the best bacon in Kingaroy. We loved their bacon flavoured pork sausages.

The Peanut Van, Kingaroy

Grab yourself a Double High Top loaf of bread from one of the areas many bakeries, pick up some bacon and sausages and take yourself off to a park and cook yourself a real country treat. Barbequed sausages and bacon on toasted country bread. Gourmet heaven!

Flamingo in Yarraman

We were tempted by the Pink Flamingo right on Australia’s Country Way. They specialise in waffles and gelato and use as much local produce as possible on their menu.

Yarraman is a town on the junction of the highway through to Brisbane and the continuation of Australia’s Country Way towards Toowoomba.

Right on the highway is the Goomeri Bakery and Coffee Shop. Great coffee, French pastries, crunchy loaves and pies served up in a classy restored shop. While in town check out the art deco Grand Hotel which prides itself on serving premium local beef from the South Burnett.
