Duaringa

Locality

Duaringa is located 107 kilometres west of Rockhampton along the Capricorn Highway. The small town is the essence of a small rural community.

Duaringa is the oldest township in Duaringa Shire with buildings dating back to the 1860s and a corner of the local hotel has been preserved to show how early pioneers lived.

The Mackenzie Park has a man-made waterfall and is also home to the rare endemic Duaringa Stringy Bark, known as “Budgeroo” trees. These trees were of great cultural significance to the early indigenous community who used its bark to make rope, baskets and building materials.

Free hot showers and camping amenities are available. Try the hotel for dinner and a drink.
