Description

In Mary Valley country behind the Sunshine Coast, Imbil is announced by hillside pineapple plantations on the 48 kilometre drive south-west from Gympie. A steep haul to the Imbil Lookout presents incomparable, near 360-degree views to Kenilworth, the mountains, and the Sunshine Coast. A 26 kilometre round-trip through forest and cultivated creek flats takes in Lake Borumba, which is perfectly tailored to swimming, boating, water-skiing and fishing. A nearby hatchery, which was opened in the early 1980s, breeds golden perch and silver perch, which are released into the local waterways as fingerlings.

Imbil is the terminus for the weekly Sunday run from Gympie by the famous Mary Valley Rattler. The beautifully restored steam locomotive No 45 and its carriages maintain the steam tradition on a railway line originally surveyed in the 1880s. On the 80 kilometre return journey, passengers are treated to some magnificent scenery as the train snakes its way through creek-networked valleys.
