Yarraman QLD


Postcode: 4614

Yarraman is a town of approximately 500 persons in Queensland, 165 kilometres northwest of Brisbane on the junction of the New England and D’Aguilar highways.

It is set in a fertile valley and produces peanuts, grain and beef and dairy goods, to which it exports to larger cities.

Yarraman is a Hoop Pine timber town surrounded by rolling hills, rich farmlands and forests. Close to the Bunya Mountains and Palms National Park, Yarraman offers a quiet, leisurely country town atmosphere, with good facilities and easy access to the rest of the South Burnett

After morning tea at the café, why not get into the history of the area with a visit to the heritage centre. With displays relating to forestry, education, art, agriculture, technology, war history and rail there is something here to interest everyone! This Heritage Centre is continually adding to its modern facilities and historical attractions for the visitor.

As a base to explore the southern parts of the South Burnett, or for an overnight stay, the caravan park, cabins and other accommodation are available.

Yarraman offers the visitor the opportunity get out and about and close to nature. With ‘mud maps’ available at outlets throughout the town, take some time to try out some of the walks. If Four Wheel Driving, trail bike riding or horse riding is more your style, then there are a number of suitable roads and tracks around the area. The Old Coach Road, which is a section of the National Trail and the Seven Mile Gold Diggings area are quite popular for these pursuits.
