Kybong: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Mothar Mountain Rockpools


Looking for a relaxing, sheltered place to while away some hours, you can't go past the Mothar Mountain Rock Pools. Located in the Woondum National Park, about a 20 minutes, 16 kilometres drive from Gympie's Central Business District, the Mothar Mountain Rock Pools day area provides the perfect family friendly location for a barbecue or picnic. Tables, wood fire barbecue, water and public amenities are all provided for your use on site. On a hot day immerse yourself into the pools to cool off.

Set amongst a mixture of tall Eucalypts and rainforest you can take the opportunity to relax and unwind to the sound of water gently flowing over ancient granite outcrops. Or if you are feeling more energetic, enjoy one of the nature walks. There is a short 500 metre (20 minute) forest walk or a rather more serious 3.5 kilometre (2 hour) walk to explore.

Gold Panning, Deep Creek


In 1867 a discovery of alluvial gold in a gully near the Mary River began the first major gold rush in Queensland and resulted in the establishment of the mining town of Gympie.

Today visitors to the region can still visit and try their luck in the gold-bearing gully in the town at the Deep Creek Fossicking Area. Located at the southern entrance to Gympie between the Bruce Highway and Brisbane Road. From Brisbane Road turn into River Road and Graham Street and turn right into Victoria Street.

Fossicking Licences are available online or at the Lake Alford Visitor Information Centre. Equipment hire is also available from the Centre (picks/shovels and pans).

A great family activity at minimal cost.

Mary Valley Rattler


Rediscover the magic of a bygone era aboard the historic Mary Valley Rattler.

The scenic Mary Valley is a place where you can experience the friendly laid back atmosphere of rural living at its best.

The Rattler's 46 kilometre round trip starts at Gympie and after crossing over the Mary River, chugs its way rhythmically around an abundance of curves, across bridges and numerous gentle hills.

Your journey passes through Dagun, before continuing to the quaint community of Amamoor nestled in the centre of the Mary Valley. You'll marvel at the restored turntable installed at the Amamoor Station and be fascinated by the process required to turn the locomotive around for its return to Gympie.

Make sure you leave plenty of time to explore the restored Gympie Station which houses a historic display, a gift shop and a cafe offering dine in and takeaway options.

The Mary Valley Rattler is more than a train ride. It's a half-day adventure into history.

With over 150 of Australia's amazing rock and blues artists performing for three days and nights the calibre of the music is nothing short of incredible! One of the best shows in the country will leave a memory never to forget!

It is as intimate and moving as a house concert, yet as powerful and raunchy as a huge stadium event.

A safe family friendly environment on a private 100 acres.

Gympie Music Muster


Muster is a four day festival in a camping village in the Amamoor State Forest on the edges of the Mary River Valley not far from the town of Gympie.
With a focus on country and the music that is made there, they also make sure that everyone is involved, from boot scooting mornings to poetry cocktail hour readings, smoko songwriting sessions and lazy arvo blues guitar jams, so at the Muster, you feel like you belong.

The final week in August sees the hoop pine valley come alive with the campfires, stage lights and camaraderie. Effectively run by 1500 local community volunteers, the Muster makes music not just for the four days, but resounds with a regional social impact that lasts at least until next Muster.
