Join in a week of celebrations in October each year when we commemorate the golden history of Gympie.

In October, the city that saved Queensland pays homage to James Nash, the man who is credited with finding the first gold in Gympie on October 16, 1867. Since then the town has become famous and has celebrated annually for this golden reason.  Read more details at the Gold Rush Website.
