Kenilworth Campers Dream Destination

Is the camper packed and ready to go but you’re not sure where to head on your next family camping adventure? Why not follow these travel tips and visit Kenilworth, nestled in the Mary Valley?

This charming town retains its 1920s/1930s atmosphere and is just under two hours from Brisbane. While a trip to Kenilworth and the surrounding area has much to offer, here are our top three must-dos while you’re in this hinterland haven.

Something for the foodies

The first stop for foodies has to be the Kenilworth Country Bakery, known for its delicious array of doughnuts. The bakery also caters for furry travellers, with a range of handmade dog biscuits and treats available.

The next stop on your discovery tour should be the Kenilworth Dairy. Start your epicurean adventure with a visit to Poppa’s cafe and indulge in a perfect cup of coffee and lunch. Once you’ve finished, head over to the cellar door where you’ll learn more about the exquisite cheeses and dairy products made on-site. While you pick a selection of locally made cheeses to enjoy by the campfire, why not select some of the award-winning chocolate mousse or yoghurts for an extra delicious fireside treat? Mmmmm, delicious!

There is also an extensive range of local produce on hand, where you are sure to find something to take home to remind you of your Mary Valley self-drive holiday.

A leisurely shopping trip

Kenilworth town centre has a diverse array of boutiques and other shopping options that will appeal to all of your travelling companions. Your options include hand-made jewellery and gifts, bamboo products and a picnic shop. There is also a health resort if you need to rest and rejuvenate. And for you budding cinematographers, there is the opportunity to engage in filmmaking workshops!

Explore the natural environment

The State Forest, easily located opposite the town centre, provides a wealth of opportunities for the outdoor adventurer, including bushwalking, fishing and horse riding. Kenilworth Bluff is a short, seven-minute, drive out of town. The Bluff is a 5km, moderately challenging walking track, which features epic views of the Mary Valley.

With plenty to offer everyone, Kenilworth is the ideal location for your next family and friends adventure.
