Town Details

Hugging the banks of the Macintyre River 350-kilometres south-west of Brisbane on the NSW border and nestled between the traditional lands of the Bigambul and Gamilaraay people lays the country town of Goondiwindi, renowned for its strong agricultural industry and recently crowned best Regional town in Queensland.

Get your town bearings on the 3 km river walk lined with Jacaranda trees, and take a dip in the 210 hectare National Heritage Water Park - a purpose built channel popular with swimmers, water skiers and boaties. Lay a picnic basket in the barbeque area and tour the surrounding bushwalking and bird watching trails. Shop along Marshall and Herbert streets for homewares and beautiful clothing, or dine at the striking Victoria Hotel for lunch. Be sure to venture to the native botanic gardens and our gorgeous ‘town park’, where the we host the annual gruelling triathlon event "Hell of the West" in February each year.

Join a guided tour of local cotton gins and farms, 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.
