It is very easy to find your way around the CBD...Everything is close. There are heaps of motels in the centre of town...and The TownHouse restaurant which is THE restaurant. There are fashion shops...a news agency...and a cinema.
And 'Gundy' is a border town...Queensland and New South Wales meet here.At one time this was a check point. The customs house from that era is now a museum.
The most famous resident of Goondiwindi was Gunsynd, a Thoroughbred race horse known as "The Goondiwindi Grey...look for the statue when in town.
The Newell, Leichhardt, Gore, Cunningham, Barwon and Bruxner Highways all merge at Goondiwindi or close by..
The twin town of Boggabilla is nearby, on the New South Wales side of the border. Most of the area surrounding the town is farmland.
The name Goondiwindi derives from an Aboriginal word meaning "the resting place of the birds...and you would not think it but Gundy can flood being situated on the MacIntyre River.
Goondiwindi is a centre for agriculture, producing a diverse range of crops and fibres including wool and beef, cotton, sorghum, corn, wheat, barley, and chickpeas. Average annual rainfall for this region is 525 millimetres (20.7 inches).Goondiwindi is well known for its dry season but still manages to produce many crops.
We left before breakfast ...not much open in Gundy town that early so we headed for Inglewood where we enjoyed scrambled eggs and bake beans in the 'Elvis cafe'.
I was sorry to miss the fashion shop' Aitches' though...some nice clothes there.
Now I was not so impressed with the food at Inglewood and in 2014 found two quite nice breakfast places in Gundy.....and I made some purchases at Aiches.
In 2014 our plan is to stay a little longer and visit the fashion shop. Goody goody!
- In a nutshell:I think it would be a nice place to live...feels that way.
You are in Queensland, Australia Much of the time the clothes sold in the country towns do not excite me but I knew of'... more travel advice
