Gin Gin

Gin Gin must be one of the only towns in Australia that can link bushrangers, thick scrub, red soil and barramundi together through its unique and varied history and landscape.

A perfect pit stop on your way North or South, Gin Gin is often referred to as Wild Scotsman country as one of Queensland's rogue bushrangers was captured here in 1866.

There are markets of the same name held every Saturday in the main street with lots of local produce to be had and while you are there you can check out the old Courthouse which now houses a community run gallery space.

A gateway to great Barramundi fishing, Gin Gin is just 20 minutes south of this international fishing destination at Lake Monduran.

Only the locals know to head to the bakery and get one of the famous pies before they are all snaffled up and to go and stock up on snacks and supplies before checking out Goodnight Scrub National Park while in the area.

Goodnight Scrub is the perfect place to spot some 166 listed species of birds, including powerful owls, regent bowerbirds, forest kingfishers and king parrots. Keep your eyes peeled for wallabies and butterflies too as they flutter by.

Take a trip down Queensland's pioneering past with rural countryside and cattle country, vineyards and olive groves in Gin Gin and surrounds.

You can do Barramundi charters, fish yourself for barra on the lake, eat barra, picnic with barra, barbecue with Barra and even be in a competition to catch the biggest Barra.

Mystery Craters

Visiting the Mystery Craters is a journey of discovery! Halfway between Bundaberg and Gin Gin is Australia's most baffling phenomenon. Since their discovery in 1971, the origins of the 35 oddly shaped craters have remained the subject of controversy. The mottled mixture of sandstone and ochre stain have been the subject of many investigations and various theories have been offered.

A giant mural greets you and as you enter the kiosk some wonderful gifts, souvenirs, and rock samples are on display. Light snacks, coffee, tea, cold drinks, and ice creams are available for your pleasure.

Through the archway you will find original photographs of the property and how the craters were discovered. Walk over the covered verandah, down the path, past the fairy garden, and you will come to the fantastic formation. A viewing tower is complimented by an informative commentary at the touch of a button.

To complete your tour, visit the collection of pioneer memorabilia and fascinating rock and fossil display. See it, love it!
