The South Burnett is serviced by three highways - the D'Aguilar
- so we're a pleasant 2 to 3 hour drive from

If you're visiting from the southern or western part of Brisbane or
the Gold Coast, the quickest route is through Ipswich and
Esk via the Brisbane Valley Highway. And if you live on the north
side of Brisbane or the lower Sunshine Coast, the easiest route is
on the D'Aguilar Highway via Caboolture and Kilcoy.
Toowoomba and Darling Downs residents can travel along the New England
Highway to Yarraman where it joins the D'Aguilar Highway, then turn
left and pass through Nanango; or on the Bunya Highway via Dalby
through Bell and Kumbia.
If you visit us from the Gympie region or many parts of Wide Bay,
the Burnett Highway via Gympie, Kilkivan and Goomeri
will be the easiest route. And if you live in the North Burnett, we're
sure you already know the many easy ways to get here anyway!

How To Find Memorial Park
Memorial Park is Kingaroy's largest park. It's located just a few
blocks from the CBD off the Bunya Highway - and it's very easy to find.
matter whether you travel from the south or the
north on any of the highways that pass through Kingaroy.
You'll eventually have to pass by an intersection with traffic lights and
a McDonald's Family Restaurant on the corner.
Simply turn off the highway into Haly Street at the traffic lights (as though
you were going to drive into McDonald's) and then travel 100 yards past it.
PS: There's plenty of free parking around the edges of Memorial
Park, but on Festival Day it's usually all filled up by around 12:00
noon. However, adjoining streets also have plenty of parking available
if you don't mind walking a block or two.
Buses should go to the front of Kingaroy High School in Markwell
Street (one block south of Memorial Park) where there are always ample
free bus parking zones.
If you need a taxi to get to or from the Festival, call Kingaroy Taxis on 131-008.
They maintain a modern fleet of vehicles and can ferry you anywhere you'd like to go.
Taxis are not only a safe and economical form of transport if you plan to drink at the Festival,
but they can save you from a lot of trouble too.
Our local police take road safety very seriously and they patrol Memorial Park and local roads
intensively before, during and after the Festival to ensure good behaviour.
So please take note of what we say in the sidebar on this page: do not drink and drive.
