The Gympie Region is wide spread and unique, with a multitude of activities and attractions on offer for both locals and visitors to the area. The beautiful Mary Valley, the majestic Mothar Mountain, through the heart of our busy town to the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach, our region has something for everyone.
The diversity of Gympie and surrounding areas is what makes it such a great place. Just minutes from the CBD you find yourself in some of the most beautiful countryside, with dairy and beef farms, mangoes, macadamias, corn and pineapples plus forests of trees and great hidden swimming holes. We have a race course, a speedway, wineries and cheese factories, markets on every weekend and entertainment in the park on a regular basis. We have a variety of restaurants and cafes, including Gluten free and healthy options.
Our historical buildings, such as the clock tower, the old post office and the old court house are just a few. The gold mining and historical museum is located at the entrance to our fantastic Alford Park, a great place for a picnic, to walk the dog or for the kids to play on the state of the art playground.
Gympie is home to famous events such as the Gympie Music Muster, The Heart of Gold Film Festival, The Rush Festival, The Valley Rattler and the Gympie Regional Show. Whether you live here or you are just visiting, take the time to discover Gympie and what this famous old town has to offer.
