About Kilkivan

Gateway to South East Queensland 

Just on the edge of southern Queensland, Kilkivan Shire forms the eastern and northern gateways of the South Burnett region of south-east Queensland, Australia.

The South Burnett is home to two of Queensland's biggest inland waterways (Lake Boondooma and the Bjelke-Petersen Dam) and is also one of the largest wine-growing regions in the State. Most of the South Burnett is located just a few easy, pleasant driving hours from Brisbane (and even less from the Sunshine Coast or Wide Bay).

That's GOLD!

Kilkivan is famous for it's history of gold and copper mining. You can experience the history of mining at the Prophet gold mine.

Experience Kilkivan's diversity

Kilkivan is located on the Bicentennial National Trail which runs right through the centre of Kilkivan Township with 107 kms of the Trail running through Kilkivan Shire itself. In April each year you can watch over 1000 horses parade through the town as part of the "Great Horse Ride".
