Maidenwell to Kingaroy

Leaving Maidenwell on the Bunya Mountains Maidenwell Road you head through rolling hills with endless views of the countryside. Initially the road surface is bitumen. Once you turn right off the Bunya Mountains Road into Maidenwell Glencliffe Road the surface turns to gravel. This section of the ride has limited phone reception and the road surface can vary in quality. If there has been heavy rain this section can be impassable due to the creek crossings. Please check the conditions before proceeding. Once you turn right on Wengenville Glencliffe Road there is a creek crossing that you may get your feet wet at. This can be a nice spot to stop as well.

The route continues to the intersection with Kumbia Road and the surface changes to bitumen. Kumbia is a lovely village nestled in the foothills of the Bunya Mountains. There is a free camp with hot showers and toilets and a petrol station if you need the basics. The Kumbia Hotel has recently reopened and has four basic accommodation rooms. Continuing onto Kingaroy the road surface is a mixture of gravel and bitumen and, generally, it is well maintained. One of the highlights of this section is Kingsley Grove Winery. They do wine tastings and have great pizzas. Upon entering Kingaroy, you will see that the town has numerous accommodation options and is the largest town in the South Burnett.
