North Burnett Vineyards
Currently there are several established wineries in the region including Monto, Bargara, Mt Perry, Gin Gin, Childers, Biggenden, Gladstone and Hervey Bay.
There is considerable interest and an active group of growers who are currently trialling different wine grape styles to establish which wines are most suitable for the region. Once the studies are completed vineyard expansion is expected in this region.
