Goombungee, QLD

Goombungee is the administrative centre for the Rosalie Shire and is one of the oldest towns in the Shire. The town itself is full of marvellous historic buildings including the Rosalie Shire Historical Society’s Museum, which contains a good collection of historic photographs, local family histories and memorabilia.

The town is known as rural iron man country, as it hosts an annual Iron man and Iron woman Competition on Australia Day. A unique iron man sculpture welcomes visitors as they enter the town from the south.

Goombungee has picnic tables and public toilet facilities located in the heart of town, with shops and petrol located close by. Jacarandas bloom along many streets every Spring and Autumn, turning on a particularly pretty display for visitors.
