Murgon - Sleep

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'.

Mundubbera - Fast Facts

Mundubbera
Pleasant country town which describes itself as the Citrus Capital of Queensland.
Located 390 km north-west of Brisbane and 124 m above sea-level the small, relatively modern township of Mundubbera is situated on the Burnett River and claims to be the Citrus Capital of Queensland, a fact it reinforces by having a 'Big Mandarin' (known sometimes as the Enormous Ellendale) to greet visitors who approach the town from the coast. The Big Mandarin is an entirely appropriate symbol as the area around Mundubbera produces over one third of Queensland's citrus fruit and boasts the largest single citrus orchard in the Southern Hemisphere.
