A former Danish settlement, (Nikenbah (Aarlsborg)) situated on the Hervey Bay Road, about halfway between Maryborough and Pialba. The first christian church in the area was built by Danish settlers, and opened in 1875.

Jons Johnson, a timbergetter, killed by a falling limb, was buried in the churchyard 15th September, 1877. The cemetery ground was surrendered to the Burrum Shire Council in 1918. A commemorative cairn now marks the site of the early church. The early settlers were subsistence farmers, working in the timber, or on the roads, for the income to enhance their productivity. e.g. horse & dray, livestock. Later, these holdings became sugar cane farms.
