"Heading North on the Bruce Highway to Gympie" Gympie by amandajayne81

Gympie Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 68 photos

More than just a stop on a road trip

I have driven through Gympie many times in my life when travelling further North. It is a good sized city by rural Queensland standards and has all the food shops for the through traveller.

It is probably best known for the Country music muster each August. This I have never been to as I am not a big country music fan.

However we travelled north to Gympie on this particular trip to take a ride on the 'Valley Rattler' a heritage train that does half and day tours from Gympie. We travelled about an hour north of the Sunshine Coast (or I guess about 2 hours north of Brisbane if you were based there.)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close to Brisbane, The Valley Rattler Train
  • Cons:Highway to get there is pretty bad for about half the trip
  • In a nutshell:Loved the Train-maybe there is more to Gympie than first thought!
