Goomeri and its surrounding areas have many things to interest the tourists. The town itself was a planned with allotments being sold in 1911. When you drive into Goomeri you will see the town clock which was built to commemorate our soldiers who served in war. Goomeri became known as the 'Clocktown' as a result. The interesting thing about the clock is that the time is indicated by the words 'Lest We Forget', instead of numbers. The first L begins where the 11 would be. Don't forget to have a look at this interesting monument.
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.
