A rural locality under the local government area of Gympie Region in the Wide Bay Burnett region of Queensland, Goomboorian is situated 20.7 kilometres northeast of Gympie, 32.3 kilometres southwest of Tin Can Bay, 78.8 kilometres south of Maryborough, 32.8 kilometres northwest of Kin Kin and 188 kilometres north of the state capital of Brisbane. The origin of the town’s name was not recorded. Goomboorian began as a timber-getting settlement that thrived on the large stands of timber in the area, which extended to Kin Kin. Sawyers worked at the Goomboorian forests in the 1870s to 1880s, depositing the logs through Tin Can Inlet. Land clearing and farm selection commenced in the early 1900s, and a number of early residents engaged in dairying, banana-growing and farming. Today, Goomboorian remains a largely agricultural locality with diverse farming industries, including fruit and vegetable growing, grain farming, and sheep, beef and cattle farming.
