Photo of a place on Gympie Regional trail

North-east of Gympie, within the Cooloola National Park, are remnants of tramways, tracks and rafting grounds used to harvest timber and established by sawmiller Willliam Pettigrew. The Double Island Point lightstation at the northern end of the national park dates to 1884.

South of Gympie along the line of the Mary Valley Railway, a series of former cream sheds and the Imbil railway bridge remind us of the importance of the fruit and dairy industries here.

A drive from Gunalda, north of Gympie, on the Miva Road will traverse the Dickabram Bridge, the only road/rail bridge in Queensland. Follow the railway line to the Woolooga Railway Bridge. Continue west to Goomeri, the home of the annual pumpkin festival. Its Hall of Memory honouring WWI soldiers was designed by Maryborough architect POE Hawkes. The War Memorial Clock at the main intersection in town was initiated to honour WWI service, but came to honour those lost in WWII as well.

There are a number of heritage places accessed from Goomeri. To the north on the Burnett Highway, is Booubjan Homestead and Elgin Vale Sawmill is to the south.
