Monkland: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.
