Recreation and Tourism 

Gympie has a unique heritage, beautiful valley pastures and untouched coastal landscapes. 

Our location in Queensland’s south east corner ensures residents and holidaymakers will have the best of both country and coast at their doorstep. 

The Gympie Town Centre encompasses Gympie’s living history as a gold mining city.  Take the Gympie Heritage self-guided trail and see historic buildings and preserved mine sites as they were over 100 years ago, or explore the many cafes and shops of Mary Street. 

Gympie’s outer-lying areas of Kilkivan, Goomeri, Kandanga and the Mary Valley showcase the stunning Mary River, home to many unique and endangered species. 

The Cooloola Cove, Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach areas to the east offer beach goers kilometres of pristine white sandy beaches. National parks such as Glastonbury, Amamoor, Mudlo and Woondum are also in close proximity to the town centre. 

With easy access from road, air and rail, the Gympie region offers the perfect holiday, weekend escape or city break experience.
