Gympie is about 160 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane. The city lies on the Mary River, which floods the town periodically. At the 2011 census, Gympie had a population of 18,602. The Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum houses memorabilia from the early gold mining era, as well as displays showcasing military, rural, transport, communications, and steam development in Australia. The town of Gympie has an important and colourful history, from being cited as the "Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy" to being the home of Andrew Fisher, Labor's second Prime Minister. Everybody is invited to visit our Museum where you can find out just how Gympie saved Queensland and discover more of the region's past and present. The Museum houses a vast collection of documentation, artifacts and photographs dating from the discovery of gold in 1867 by James Nash to the recently closed operations of the Gympie Eldorado Goldmine. In 1867, James Nash discovered 72 ounces of Gold in just 6 days. This started the Gold Rush in Gympie and it became known as The Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy. Gympie has has seen the rush for alluvial gold, deep reef mining, reprocessing of tailings and the re-opening of the mines in the mid 1980s. With the recent cessation of mining, there still remains the lure of residual gold and there may well be more to come. You can learn all about this, and much more of Gympies colourful and historical past right here at the Museum. The site comprises over 5 hectares containing over 30 display areas in and around 15 major buildings. Gympie is heralded as the town that saved Queensland from bankruptcy due to drought and low wool prices back in the 1800s. Thanks to James Nash discovery of gold where the Gympie Town Hall now stands back in 1867, the Gold Rush was started. Within 6 months of James Nash’ windfall, over 15,000 men had raced to Gympie to dig for their fortunes. The town grew at a rapid rate and amazingly many of the original buildings are still there. Gympie's Gold Mining and Historical Museum showcases not only Gympie's rich gold mining history but also other aspects of the region's past era including steam machinery, agricultural, dairying, vehicles, gemstone and shell collections. Andrew Fisher House (named after Australia's second Labour Prime Minister 1908-1915) is part of the Museums collection of historical buildings housed with period furniture. Also the award winning Military Collection of the Fifth Light Horse Regiment which includes military equipment and memorabilia of all sons and daughters of the Gympie area that went to war. Try your luck at the Museum's Gold Panning and take home a specimen of Gympie Gold - a great time for the whole family. Tour groups welcome.

You don't have to believe me, that's fine with me. I can say this, right after I made this video, I overlaid the Australian gold map over this, and I was right about the dark spots. Nut there was also some bright areas as well. You would want to get your alignment very precise. Remember me when this all pays off for you. If you need my help you can send me a plane ticket, and we can go get some nuggets. I know this is hard to believe, but if you watch some of my other videos, it will make it easier.

In the late 70s, Eric Tutin brought this song to our house in Melbourne. He rehearsed it with my Mother (Joan Martin) and me, but we never performed it. The song was recorded by Zeta Burns in Queensland in 1983. In My recording, I've tried to recreate the sound of the old Sundowners (the duo of my Mother and Eric) from 1942.

This mine is part of the paradise mine complex, this is the first mine I came across while on walk about in the Brisbane ranges so it was pretty exciting. I've since come across larger mines in the area, but this was amazing to find just the same.

As the roll out of the National Broadband Network gains momentum, we’re taking a look into the lives and businesses of Telstra nbn™ customers across Australia. Famous for gold mining in the 1800s, Gympie is now central to the Mary River agricultural district. Known for its variety of industries, the locality supports not only cattle and pigs, but also tropical fruit, vegetables and dairy. The region’s Mary Valley Hills also boast gorgeous national parks, perfect for activities with family and friends. Originally from the UK, Gympie resident Nick Green loves the warmer climate of regional Queensland and was excited to be one of the first Telstra customers to connect to the nbn™ in September 2015. As an expat, one of the biggest benefits of the nbn™ for Nick is being able to use Skype to stay connected with family overseas. He’s also now able to work more flexibly and spend more time with the kids. Nick has also pre-registered his IT business, PC Place, for the nbn™ when it becomes available in the area; he’s looking forward to harnessing DOT to make his working hours even more flexible.
