Goondiwindi


Description

Sitting peacefully on the banks of the Macintyre River at the junction of five major highways, Goondiwindi is a well-established border town. You'll find its a vibrant, contemporary place with excellent facilities and amenities and its river frontage provides a unique and tranquil setting for one of Queensland's fastest growing communities. In late spring you'll see a breath-taking display as jacaranda trees lining the streets burst into full purple bloom.

Goondiwindi provides a range of accommodation and once settled there's shopping, dining and so much more to do around the town and beyond. Marshall and Herbett Streets offer a terrific range of shopping experiences, from gifts and homewares to quality clothing stores.

The town's major rural products include wheat, cotton, beef and wool, while major industries include service industries, machinery sales and repairs. Goondiwindi is also home to one of the largest cotton gins in the world and tours are available.

On a self-guided walk around the town you'll find the recently refurbished iconic Victoria Hotel, built in the era of Queen Victoria and then added to it the 1920s. The building features some of the most outstanding architecture in the region. Situated in the heart of the main street, you can't miss this old dame - a study building or brick and timber, with a criss-cross of dark panelling and white lattice on its facades, stained-glass windows and doorways, crowned by an ornamental (and slightly off-kilter)tower.

Be sure to also drop by the Gunsynd Statue located near the original Border bridge. It commemorates the famous 'Goondiwindi Grey' - a racehorse that went on to win 29 races including the Cox plate and the four big mile races.
