The Boonah district tends to include Aratula and Cunningham's Gap, the latter one of Australia's most famous passes as it forms part of a well traversed highway.
Boonah enjoys an pleasant setting in the heart of a prosperous agricultural area.
Situated 84 easy kilometres south-west of Brisbane and just under 100 m above sea-level, Boonah is known as 'The Heart of the Fassifern'.
Timber houses, these days seemingly long forgotten in the major coastal cities, can be viewed in abundance here.
