Gympie is in the Wide Bay-Burnett region of Queensland and is approximately 160kms north of the state capital Brisbane. Gympie is situated along the picturesque Mary River and expands from stunning Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and the Mary Valley and out to the rural towns of Kilkivan and Goomeri, Gympie also offers the easiest access to World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Gympie is most famous for its gold fields and perhaps for a one time total of 72 pubs in the high street during the gold rush era. The township still celebrates Gympie Gold Rush Festival and holds 10 days of cultural events annually in October. Memorabilia of the gold rush days are housed at the Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum. The scenic Mary Valley is a favourite with tourists and locals alike and is great for those who enjoy outdoor activities, there is also camping, canoeing, 4-wheel driving, horse riding, quaint B&B’s and farm-stays for visitors. The Mary Valley tourist drive will wind you through the smaller townships of Dagun and Kandanga where you can taste delicious local goodies, including organic wines and cheeses. Historical old Gympie town is a major servicing and business hub for the outer region and has many schools reflecting its importance to the area. With so much local produce in abundance, including a wide range of seasonal fruit, vegetables, red claw and crayfish, and export quality beef amongst the pastures, it’s not surprising it is also home to many high-end, value adding processors and distributors. Gympie hosts the Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival over the first weekend in October. Five days of fun, the festival is an attraction for budding producers and directors, showcasing documentaries, parties, seminars and an award ceremony.View on Map
