ABOUT KENILWORTH

Kenilworth is small country town in the heart of the stunning Mary Valley surrounded by lush, green countryside. Come for a scenic drive and discover this hidden gem.

Quaint and charming, idyllic and restful and only 90 minutes drive north from Brisbane and 50 minutes from the Sunshine Coast. The town is on the Mary River which flows north from Maleny through Conondale, Kenilworth, Gympie, Tiaro, Maryborough, and then into the sea opposite Fraser Island.

The commercial centre of the township began with the opening of the General Store (now Kenilworth Bakery) in 1924 and developed over the next two decades culminating in the opening of the Kenilworth Hotel in November 1939. The 1920-30's charm of the buildings has been preserved by local people and retained by council regulation.

Imbil State Forest and Conondale National Park with their magnificent forests, deep gorges and spectacular views offer walking tracks, peaceful camping spots and great swimming holes. Alternatively stay at one of our numerous private camping grounds offering excellent facilities, some of which are pet friendly.

Or stay in and around town - Kenilworth has a great range of accommodation from B & B's to cottages to our country-style hotel. Wander up and down our beautiful main street and sample the many varied food outlets. Peruse the delightful gift shops and of course you must make a visit to our famous cheese factory at the Kenilworth Diaries.

See you soon!
