Description

Gayndah lays claim to being the oldest towns in Australia, founded in 1849 maintaining its old fashioned charm today. Several buildings have been heritage listed including Mellors Drapery (one of the few buildings in Australia which still uses a flying fox to deal with transactions), old section of the State School, Gayndah Soldier's Memorial
Hall (Town Hall and Council Chambers), Racecourse and several rail bridges.

Sheep and mining brought settlers into 
the area, but it was the drier, less humid climate, rich volcanic and alluvial soils and plenty of sunshine that set the area up as a prime citrus growing centre and is popular during the cooler months of May to August with local and visiting fruit pickers.

Gayndah is famous for it's biennial Orange Festival which is a celebration of the abundant citrus produce which comes from the region. Among the many historical points of interest, the Gayndah Art Gallery, Gayndah Museum with it's extensive display dedicated to the Queensland Lungfish (or Ceratodus)Archers Lookout and the town clock are all worth a mention.

Gayndah is part of the Burnett Circle Touring Route and can be visited as part of a six day drive tour to take in all of the rural and authentic Australian experiences as part of the North Burnett.
