Information

The rural village of Maidenwell, approximately 200 kilometres north-west of Brisbane, has an interesting history. John King, a selector from nearby Tarong, settled in the area in 1882, and his homestead served as a stopping place for stage coaches. It was also a store, a butcher and a post office. In 1912, John King acquired land on the site of the present village, and the hotel, which is still operating today, was the first building constructed in 1914. Maidenwell derived its name from the first water well that was dug in the district. Maidenwell is ideally situated as the gateway to the majestic Bunya Mountains. Located just 27 kilometres from Yarraman, 30 kilometres from Nanango and 45 kilometres from Kingaroy, there are many easy day and half-day activities around Maidenwell, including walking/bike tracks, Palms National Park, regional wineries, historic Ringsfield House, the first graves in the Nanango Shire, and, of course, the Bunya Mountains.
