Things To Do Gympie is a vibrant and thriving regional city and caters for travellers and tourists. The iconic Mary Valley Rattler steam train draws tens of thousands of visitors from across Australia and internationally.

The Gympie Gold Rush of the late 1800's saved Queensland from bankruptcy. Gympie was founded on Gold mining with it being the backbone of the town’s wealth for the better part of the 20th century. See our city's heritage on display at the Gold and Historic museum at Lake Alford.

Gympie has a rich history of timber harvesting. Visit the working Woodworks museum for a terrific working display of steam driven saw milling.

Gympie Regional art gallery hosts regular local and interstate art exhibitions. Always a get away to pass a few hours with the friendly gallery staff!
