Welcome to the Boyne Valley

The Boyne Valley is an hour’s drive from Gladstone in Central Queensland, Australia.  It is a rural community with the small townships of Nagoorin, Ubobo, Builyan and Many Peaks dotted along the Boyne River, which is the lifeblood of the valley. Many services and facilities, including a health clinic, primary schools, general store, post office agency, hotel, churches, automotive repairs, halls and public toilets, service clubs, sports grounds, camping and accommodation are available, with easy access, via bitumen highway 69, from Calliope in the north or Monto in the south.  Access is also available from Miriam Vale, on the Bruce Highway, via the partly sealed Blackman’s Gap Road.

Beef and sawmilling are the main industries, with dairying, irrigated crops and mining, contributing to the economy. The Boyne River, Awoonga Dam and a network of National Parks and forests combine to create a place of great natural beauty and encourage  tourism.  New residents arriving in the Valley in recent years have found the Valley to be a great place to build a home and retire or an easy place from which to commute to work.

Attractions

A great lifestyle, away, but not too far from the madding crowd, is the essential attraction to the Boyne Valley. Visitors will enjoy leisure activities in a beautiful setting, whether on the river or in the ranges. Check the Events, Organisations, or  Facilities pages.
