Gin Gin - gateway to the bush, barra fishing and the Bundaberg region. The main street offers a fantastic trip into yesteryear with buildings dating from the 1900's set alongside the beautified, long median strip. Gin Gin has become an international fishing destination with the success of the Lake Monduran which has been stocked with native barramundi which grow to over one metre and over 30 kilograms.

The Wide Bay Region has a sub-tropical climate. They have a good rainfall of approximately 1001 millimetres, a mild and dry winter with average temperatures ranging between 10 and 22 degrees, and summer temperatures ranging between 20 and 32 degrees. Summer is also their wet season (December to March). These wonderful climatic conditions make it possible to enjoy the outdoors throughout the year.

The town of Gin Gin provides direct access to Bundaberg from the Bruce Highway. Lovely gardens divide the wide streets and historic buildings are a reminder of Queensland's pioneering past. Visitors can explore the natural rural countryside and fields of sugarcane with vineyards and olive groves emerging as new horticultural industries.

Nearby Lake Monduran provides a relaxing waterside location - popular for fishing and camping. The Goodnight Scrub National Park offers wilderness camping and panoramic drives over unsealed roads. Nearby Mt Perry township and Boolboonda Tunnel provide a scenic look into the region's mining past and present. Motels, caravan parks and camping facilities cater for all visitors. Wild Scotchman Week is held annually in the last week of March and is a fun and unique celebration of Queensland's only true bushranger - James McPherson - guaranteed to keep everyone entertained.

Gin Gin is a convenient rest stop when travelling between Brisbane and Rockhampton and features accommodation, casual restaurants and takeaways, museum and visitor information centre.
