Monto, 250km west on the Burnett Highway from Bundaberg, celebrates the importance of the milking cow to the town’s prosperity with a Dairy Festival in June of every evenly-numbered calendar year. The eight-day knees-up culminates with a street procession and family fun day. Standout feature of the area is the Cania Gorge National Park which conserves a spectacular landscape of sandstone cliffs soaring up to 70m in height, eucalypt and dry rainforest. Wind and rain have carved unusual shapes in the sandstone outcrops and some such as the distinctive Elephant's Head rock have been given names. A network of bush walks beginning at the southern end of the picnic area wanders through caves, pristine flora and unique Australian wildlife habitat. Every March, the park hosts the Lake Cania freshwater fishing competition. No camping is allowed within the park, but you can pitch your tent or tether your van in a private park in the Cania Gorge, about 10km north of the entrance to the National Park.
