Discover the Gympie Cooloola region, an amazing area full of natural beauty which lies between the Heritage Listed Fraser Island and the Sunshine Coast and incorporates the Great Sandy Biosphere.
From lush green hills that stretch to sandy rainforests, a major river system, perched lakes and a stunning coastline rich in native flora and fauna, the Gympie Cooloola region features a wonderfully diverse blend of coast, country and community.
Beside the mighty Mary River sits the historic city of Gympie which offers the opportunity to experience our rich golden past. To the East you will find the tranquil waters of Tin Can Bay with its famous dolphins and the vast expanses of pristine beaches and coloured sands of Rainbow Beach which make up the Cooloola Coast. Travelling westward takes you through cattle country, horse country and the vineyards of the South Burnett. Mary Valley Country, nestled in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, provides Australia’s last undiscovered natural playground for nature based activities.
