Custom Home Builders Gympie
Gold was discovered in Gympie by James Nash in 1867 — and Gympie is still pure gold. It is known as the town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy because that is just what it did, and Gympie gave Australia ex-miner and engine driver Andrew Fisher too, the Labor Party’s second Prime Minister, who emigrated from Scotland to Queensland in 1885.
Nashville was renamed Gympie, which means stinging tree, in 1868
Gympie is about 100 miles north of Brisbane on the Mary River, and the main industries apart from gold mining are dairy, timber and tourism. In fact, you can still pan for gold there — at the Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum. There is a 10-day-long Gold Rush Festival every October to celebrate the discovery of gold and establishment of the town.
Insight into the timber industry and social history of yesteryear
There is a WoodWorks Museum, and evocative 19th century heritage buildings. The local steam train is called the Valley Rattler, and it takes tourists through rolling green meadows and steep slopes where macadamia nuts and pineapples grow, over bridges and across forests.
Gympie’s local raceway
The Mothar Mountain Speedway dates back to the early 1960s. It is a kidney-shaped dirt track with a tight hairpin bend, built and maintained by staff and students of Victory College, and has become part of the College’s Industrial Technology Skills program.
