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.
