Kingaroy – the peanut capital of Australia. But once a year the town goes nutty about…
Baconfest – a bacon-basted weekend putting aussie pork on a pedestal. What could be more enticing than an event that bows down to the glistening, sweet-salty glory of one of the world’s favourite foods.
Take part in the bacon eating competition where you could win a years supply of bacon. Yep, a 12 month subscription to happiness.
There’s also smoking masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, stall upon stall hawking bacon in every which way possible. Bacon ice cream, fudge, stuffed in donuts. Let your imagination run wild.
Fun fact – Kingaroy processes more than 95% of the state’s pork. It’s a pig deal. Hence Baconfest – a salute to swine!
The weekend sees a massive turnout of over 20,000 eager people from all over the country.
Our tip – book now and nab your accommodation and make a pig-weekend out of it. Baconfest is on from the 18th – 20th of August. Earmark it now for a squealin’ good time.
