Murgon (including Goomeri and Cherbourg)
Rural service centre near to Cherbourg Aboriginal community.
The tiny township of Murgon, which is located 321 m above sea-level and 251 km north-west of Brisbane via the Burnett, D'Aguilar and Bruce Highways, can make few claims to the attention of the passing traveller: an historical museum, a median strip named in honour of Flo Bjelke-Petersen (Queensland's well-known pumpkin scone cook and wife of a former state premier), a sign announcing that it is the home of Australia's champion cheese, and that just about covers its appeal. So enamoured with the ex-Queensland Prime Minister (Joh Bjelke-Petersen) is the town that there was a time when it proudly announced 'Come to Murgon - Gateway to Joh's Country'.
