Kenilworth is a small town, with a population of less than 300, in the beautiful upper Mary Valley Country, behind the Blackall Range and only about one and a half hours drive north of Brisbane.
The Mary River flows North from Maleny, through Conondale, Kenilworth, Gympie, Tiaro, Maryborough, and then into the sea opposite Fraser Island.
The town retains its 1920s atmosphere and, for the visitor, has a surprising amount of interest with a very engaging historical museum and a good range of shops, two art galleries and a cheese, yoghurt and ice-cream factory.
The Kenilworth State Forest, adjacent to the Town, provides excellent opportunities for horse riding, walking and fishing. The area has a wide variety of options for accommodation from basic camping to luxury retreats.
A drive taking in Eumundi, Kenilworth and Maleny will provide a stunning variety of scenery, great opportunities for shopping and a wonderful choice of eateries.
They are 50 minutes from the coast and one and a half hours from Brisbane by car.
