Goondiwindi

Sitting peacefully on the banks of the Macintyre River at the junction of five major highways, Goondiwindi is a well-established border town. Its name was derived from an Aboriginal word Goonawinna meaning "the resting place of the birds" - and it's just the place to relax and rest a while. With all you could want by the way of amenities, an interesting history to explore, great food and warm country hospitality, it'll be time well spent.

The Queensland/ New South Wales border is marked by the great Macintyre River, which creates a scenic backdrop for this friendly and prosperous country town.

You’ll find it’s a vibrant, contemporary place with excellent facilities and amenities and its river frontage provides a unique and tranquil setting for one of Queensland’s fastest growing rural communities. Photographers often turn their lenses to the heritage buildings and country landscapes. In late spring you’ll see a breathtaking display as jacaranda trees lining the streets burst into full purple bloom.

Home to around 6,000 locals and servicing approximately 15,000, its neat tree-lined streets, well maintained public buildings, sporting facilities and relaxed town centre are a good measure of the community spirit and civic pride you’ll find here. That, naturally, extends to welcoming travellers to join in the activities, events and festivals and the local way of life. You’ll find a range of accommodation here and once you’re settled there’s shopping, dining and so much more to do around town and beyond.

Marshall and Herbert Streets offer a terrific range of shopping experiences. You’ll find everything from gifts and home wares to quality clothing stores. Since you’re in these parts why not look the part and treat yourself to a new pair of boots, moleskins and an Akubra hat from one of the local country outfitters? Marshall Street is also eat street with many chic cafés where you can indulge in a good coffee, country-style cakes and baked goods as well as tasty light meals. The locals love to eat well and you will too!
