Aussie Peanuts make an Aussie Tourism Icon
From humble beginnings in Kingaroy, the Peanut Van supplies the world’s best and freshest peanuts. This tourism icon, established in 1969, has experienced significant growth with a second van operating at Childers and retail outlets on Gympie Road, Chermside (Brisbane) and near the Ettamogah Pub on the Sunshine Coast. With over 20 flavours available your tastebuds will be tingling and their peanut paste is pure peanuts and has no additives. All peanuts are 100% Australian and are the naturally healthier Hi Oleic nut. “Studies confirm peanuts should be an active ingredient in a healthy diet and the Hi Oleic nut is the ideal choice. Our peanuts are the best you will ever taste”, owner Rob Patch said. “Celebrities have enjoyed our peanuts including members of the Australian Cricket Team. Our peanuts went to the Caribbean and were enjoyed by team members following their World Cup win. Other celebrities including singer David Campbell have stopped at our Childers van. David literally ran from the bus to the van.” The business has featured on various television programs relating to the peanut industry and tourism, with a story recently recorded with Channel 9 travel program, Getaway. In 2007, gourmet hampers were introduced which are made for any occasion and to suit any budget. Product is easily sent Australia wide and with online ordering available at peanutvan.com.au, customers come from all over Australia and the world.
