The North Burnett Region... Most of us have heard of it, but just where is it, and what's there to see and do?
We'll start with the 'where' first up. It's in Queensland, about 100k's SSW from Bundaberg, or about 300k's North of Brisbane. Ok, that will get you to Biggenden, one of the major centres in the North Burnett region. The others are Gayndah, Mundubbera, Eidsvold and Monto to name just a few.
Now to the exciting bit, the 'see and do'. As with anything in this day and age, it all comes down to time. A highlights trip of the region could be done in around five days, but to really soak it all up you're going to need a lot longer.
The region has a lot to offer, and a lot to offer a broad spectrum of visitors. There's hiking, 4WDriving, birdwatching, photography, fishing, water sports, history and Art Deco architecture just to get the ball rolling. There's even reports of a bunyip in the region!
So, here's my highlights reel from the North Burnett:
