Goomeri and its surrounding areas have many things to interest new and returning visitors. Situated on the crossroads of the Wide Bay, Burnett and D'Aguilar Highways, the town presents itself as both a strategic and majestic location for tourists to stop, unwind and relax in a picturesque country setting. With the town itself having a history as far back as 1911, Goomeri will entice feelings of nostalgia and old-world charm with most of it's present buildings built during the 1920's-40's. Upon first entering Goomeri it is hard to miss the striking town clock, built to commemorate soldiers from the region who served in WWI and WWII. Upon closer inspection, it can be seen that the numbers on the clock have been replaced by the words 'Lest We Forget', beginning with 'L' where you would normally find number 11.
The town's Heritage and Information Centre has displays of Goomeri's history as well as many brochures about places to visit in the surrounding area. They may be able to provide you with a map for a walking tour of Goomeri. This walking tour indicates, on small plaques, where particular buildings were in the early settlement of the town.
For places to see and things to do while you are in the area, please visit the following websites and look for Goomeri:
