Kingaroy is located 220km north-west of Brisbane at the junction of the D’Aguilar and Bunya Highways. It’s the regional capital of the South Burnett. Kingaroy township and its immediate surrounds now has approximately 10,000 residents and the South Burnett Regional Council area’s population now exceeds 32,000.

Kingaroy has always been a rich agricultural area and is probably best known as Australia’s peanut and navy bean capital. But since the early 1990s it’s also become home to a vigorous wine industry which is already the largest in the State in terms of production.

Kingaroy real estate prices are currently lower than comparable properties in Brisbane and on the coast. But they’ve roughly doubled in the last decade and seem set to go even higher in future.

Kingaroy’s population is also expected to double over the coming decades as a steadily growing population take advantage of the area’s great rural lifestyle, the area’s proximity to Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast and rapidly expanding opportunities.
