The Boyne Valley is just an hours drive from Gladstone in Central Queensland, Australia. It is a rural community with the small townships of Nagoorin, Ubobo, Builyan and Many Peaks dotted along the Boyne River which is the heart of the valley. Many services and facilities, including a Health Clinic, Primary Schools, General Store, Post Office Agency, Hotel, Churches, Automotive Repairs, Halls and public toilets, Service Clubs, Sports Grounds, Camping and Accommodation are available, with easy access via bitumen highway Number 69 from Calliope in the north or Monto in the south. Access is also available from Miriam Vale on the Bruce Highway, via the partly sealed Blackmans Gap Road over the Many Peaks Range. Beef and saw-milling are the main industries, with dairying, irrigated crops and mining contributing to the economy. The Boyne River, Awoonga Dam and a network of National Parks and forests combine to create a place of great natural beauty and encourage tourism. New residents arriving in the Valley in recent years have found the Valley to be a great place to build a home and retire or an easy place from which to commute to work.
