After Dalby and traveling north we pass through Bell and Kumbia on our way to Kingaroy.
The small, prosperous village grew up around Taabinga in the 1890s but the arrival of the railway in 1904 led to a land explosion around Kingaroy and the development of Kingaroy as it now exists.
The Central Business District of the township is dominated by the Peanut Company of Australia's peanut silos (a local landmark). The Information, Art and Heritage Precinct is located directly opposite the peanut silos. The complex includes the Kingaroy Shire Art Gallery, Visitor Information Centre, Heritage Museum and an interpretative arena which highlights local industries.
The Heritage Precinct also includes a number of historic buildings ranging from Carroll's Cottage (the first building constructed in Kingaroy) through to the Carrollee Hotel and the Shire's earliest Council Chambers (built in 1918).
Kingaroy is a nice town that has managed its heritage carefully and requires longer than an overnighter to enjoy.
