DISCOVER THE CULTURE, HISTORY & NATURAL BEAUTY OF
THE BOYNE VALLEY
Come for a day, stay for the weekend, or linger longer and discover the history, culture, and natural beauty of our valley. We would love to share it with you.
By visiting, you are contributing to a larger community initiative designed to breathe life back into our rural community struggling with economic and rural decline.
Off the beaten track but only an hour’s drive from Gladstone, the Boyne Valley provides the rural backdrop for the Gladstone Region. If you’re looking to enjoy some real country hospitality or learn a little about our waves of development, ask a local. They will happily share a yarn or two with you around the campfire.
The Goorang Goorang First Nations people called the Boyne Valley home before everything changed after British explorer John Oxley and his crew arrived and viewed the beautiful Boyne Valley stretching before them. Pastoralists followed, gold and copper miners, soldier settlers, those who worked with pick and shovel to link Gladstone to Monto by rail, dairy farmers, drovers, timber getters, each added their stories to history’s page. Stay a while and make your contribution to the next chapter.
In the Valley, mountains, State Forests and National Parks are never too far away. Beauty and diversity surround you. The area is home to such rare and endangered species as the Kroombit Tinker frog, the Bulburin Nut, macadamia jansenii, and the silver-headed antechinus. Linger longer, there is much to discover. We are here to help and guide you.

How to find us
Follow Gladstone- Monto Road (Highway 69).
It branches off the Dawson Highway and takes you to the Boyne Valley and the villages of Nagoorin, Ubobo, Builyan, and Many Peaks, crosses the Dawes Range to Kalpowar and continues south to Monto on the Burnett Highway.
Access is also available via Blackmans Gap Road just south of Miriam Vale. Branching from the Bruce Highway, this road crosses the Many Peaks Range into the Boyne Valley.
Both roads and the ranges they cross are sealed with two short sections on either side of the ranges unsealed.
