Goondiwindi

Hugging the banks of the Macintyre River 350-kilometres south-west of Brisbane on the New South Wales border lays the country town of Goondiwindi, renowned for its wheat, cotton, beef and wool.

Get your town bearings on the three kilometre river walk lined in purple jacaranda trees, and take a dip in the 210 hectare National Heritage and Water Park - a purpose built channel popular with swimmers and boaties. Lay a picnic blanket in the barbecue area and tour the surrounding bushwalking and bird watching trails.

Shop along Marshall and Herbett Street's for homewares and country clothing and dine at the striking Victoria Hotel for lunch, with its black and white facade. Be sure to also venture to the native botanic gardens and lagoon lined in dragon boats, where the town hosts the annual gruelling triathlon event 'Hell of the West' at the start of each year.

Join a guided tour of the cotton gin and farm, nearby citrus orchards and local indigenous paper mill and gallery. Then hit the pavement on foot exploring the heritage-listed war memorial, civic centre and customs house museum. Don't forget to commemorate the famed Goondiwindi Grey statue of the Cox Plate winning racehorse Gunsynd near the Border Bridge built in 1914.
