Places to Stay when visiting TASTE South Burnett Kingaroy
When you visit us at TASTE South Burnett, why not stay a little longer and “Discover the Magic” of the South Burnett? Shannon and Megan started out as visitors to the region in 2008, and stayed in many of the boutique and commercial accommodation providers below on weekend jaunts away from the city, and we loved it so much we never left! The list below is by no means exhaustive, but is simply a guide to the some of our trusted colleagues in South Burnett accommodation that we know will provide you with great country hospitality.
If you have stayed somewhere that is not on the list, LET US KNOW, as we would love to hear about the experience and have them listed below.
