Goomeri

(a few reviews from 2 attractions)
Nightlife
Goomeri is a town in the South Burnett region of Queensland, Australia. The town is located on the intersection of the Burnett, Bunya and Wide Bay Highways, 235km from the state capital, Brisbane. Part of the Gympie local government area, at the 2006 census, Goomeri had a population of 488. The town's name is allegedly derived from the Aboriginal name for "broken shield".HistoryEuropean settlement in the Goomeri area began in 1846 with the establishment of Booubyjan Homestead and Boonara Station. Closer settlement took place in 1911 with the sale of rural allotments and town blocks. Goomeri Post Office opened by June 1912 (a receiving office had been open from 1902).On 15 November 1940,the Goomeri Memorial Clock Tower was unveiled by the State President of the RSL, Raymond Huish.TourismWith delightful parks and many of the buildings built in the 1920s, Goomeri is a quiet and pleasant place that boasts an agreeably relaxed old world charm. The town is also known as "Clocktown" due to the landmark town clock built in 1939. Goomeri's impressive Hall of Memory – still in use today, was built in 1926 and is now a National Trust-listed building.
