Nanango

Trip Planner South Pacific  /  Australia  /  Queensland  /  Nanango
Nanango is a town and locality in the South Burnett Region of Queensland, Australia. In the 2011 census, Nanango had a population of 3,795 people.GeographyNanango is situated 190km north-west of the state capital, Brisbane. Nanango sits at the junction of the D'Aguilar and Burnett Highways.HistoryThe original inhabitants of the area were the indigenous people belonging to the Wakka Wakka (or Waka Waka) people. The area was used as a gateway to the bunya nut festivals, where Aboriginal people would travel from far as far away as the Clarence River in northern New South Wales and the Maranoa River to feast on bunya nuts from the bunya trees.The area around Nanango was first settled by Europeans in 1847 by John Borthwick and William Oliver from Ipswich taking up pastures for sheep farming. Oliver selected an area of more than 500 km² that comprised four blocks – Coolabunia, Booie, Broadwater and Nanango.The first commercial establishment at the present site of Nanango township was Goode's Inn, founded by prospector Jacob Goode in July 1848. The inn served travellers journeying from Brisbane and Limestone (now known as Ipswich) and became the meeting place for early residents of Taromeo, Tarong and Nanango stations. The town of Nanango quickly developed around it. Goode's original rough slab structure met the licensing conditions as his first licence for the "Burnett Hotel situated at Barambah Creek" was given at a special licensing meeting on 26 April 1849.
