Recreation & Tourism

The Gympie region is located just two hours north of Brisbane. Set in a landscape like no other, the coloured sands of Rainbow Beach and the charming fishing town of Tin Can Bay are our coastal playgrounds. They are also the southern gateway to K’gari (Fraser Island). 

Away from the coast, you will find the pioneering heritage town of Gympie. With its elegant buildings and heritage railway giving you a glimpse into our historic past.

Take a short drive south to discover the lush Mary Valley, with its fertile land and fresh produce that you can taste in many of the menu’s throughout the region.

Out west, you will discover a beauty unmatched; the rolling hills and country character of the townships will make your trip one to remember.
