The beautiful Boyne Valley is just an hours drive from Gladstone in Central Queensland, Australia. It is a rural community with the small townships of Nagoorin, Ubobo, Builyan and Many Peaks dotted along the Boyne River which is the heart of the valley.

Beef and sawmilling are the main industries, with dairying, irrigated crops and mining contributing to the economy.
