Gayndah

Gayndah is the great stop to start satisfying those culinary curiosities. It lays claim to being the oldest town in Queensland and with good reason; sheep and mining brought settlers to the area in 1849, but it was the rich red soils and year round sunshine that established Gayndah as the heart of Queensland’s citrus industry, and that combination of old world charm and farm fresh produce is still very much alive and well.

A number of heritage-listed buildings line the streets including Mellors Drapery – one of the few buildings in Australia which still uses a flying fox to deal with transactions – while the nearby Art Gallery and Museum help paint a vivid picture of the region’s rich history.

It’s also home to the Gayndah Orange Festival – the state’s self-proclaimed ‘oldest, boldest and goldest’ celebration of local produce and culture – that has been celebrated for over 60 years.
