Located 75 kilometres west of Gladstone is the small rural township of Ubobo, one of four towns which are part of the Boyne Valley - including Nagoorin, Many Peaks and Builyan.

Ubobo, the town that fought off Telstra and saved its telephone box. That may not seem a big deal to city slickers, but if you ask any resident - it was worth fighting for. At last check, the box was still there and working. If the phone call is that urgent, there is a shorter route, travelling from Miriam Vale, heading west and onwards to Monto.

You may be surprised to learn that Ubobo is more than just a pretty face. There is free and paid camping, hotel and dorm-style accommodation, excellent fishing at Boynedale, general store, post office, church, sporting grounds and great annual family events.
