Blackbutt Showgrounds

Located in the town of Blackbutt in the South Burnett Region of the Wide Bay Burnett area of Queensland, the Blackbutt Showgrounds is only 500m from the D’Aguilar Highway on Bowman Road.

The facilities are clean and well maintained and the allocated camping area is flat, grassy and large enough for big rigs but there is not a lot of shade. There are quite a few places to plug into power and water is available too.
