We love the Gympie Region, you will too

Why not make your next trip to The Muster a little longer and discover why we love the Gympie Region? 

The Gympie Music Muster’s “Festival in the Forest” is situated in the Amamoor State Forest, located within the picturesque Mary Valley – famous for its national parks, rolling hills, B&Bs, farm stays, and various outdoor activities.

Gympie is credited as the town that saved Queensland from its discovery of gold in the 1800s. It’s home to the Mary Valley Rattler steam train, great cafes and local produce shops and the friendly people who help make the Muster happen every year.

To the west are historic farming towns of Kilkivan and Goomeri, while to the east, Tin Can Bay is renowned for dolphin feeding, fishing and sailing. Rainbow Beach, gateway to Fraser Island, offers accommodation from five-star to beach camping, scuba diving, sky diving, 4WD beaches, horse riding on the beach and paragliding.

Drive a little further and discover Noosa and the many stunning beaches of the Sunshine Coast, all under an hour’s drive from the Festival.


An hour east of Gympie you can access the incredible water ways, fishing spots and beaches of Tin Can Bay, Cooloola Cove and Rainbow Beach.
