Whether you plan on staying in Goondiwindi for a few days or a few weeks, there is a wide range of things to see and do during your stay. We have outlined only some of the tourist attractions that you might enjoy.
Those interested in history will find plenty to keep them amused during their stay, including: Gunsynd Statue and Museum (the statue commemorates the famous ‘Goondiwindi Grey’, who won the hearts of race goers in the late 60s and early 70s), Customs House Museum (which houses a collection of mementos from yesteryear), Australian Tobacco Museum (where you can take a step back in time) and the Texas Heritage Centre (with amazing reproductions).
If you prefer getting outside, there are plenty of natural attractions for you to visit, including: the River Walk (which is 3km long and follows the beautiful Macintyre River), Botanic Gardens of the Western Woodlands, Beacon Lookout (the view is well worth the stop), Yelarbon Desert and Spinifex Country, Desert Jewels Biodiversity Walk, and Yelarbon Lagoon. There are some great locations for bird watching and fishing; drop into the Visitor’s Centre for more!
Those who are more interested in sport and recreation will find plenty to do in Goondiwindi, including: the Natural Heritage Water Park (which has over 210 hectares of parkland and features a 3.3km circuit for waterskiing and other water sports) and the Old Silverspur Mine (where deposits of silver/lead and silver/copper were found). Many visitors also like to take a guided or even a winery tour to see the area in greater detail.
If rest and relaxation is more your thing, we recommend paying the naturally warm and mineral-rich spas at the local tourist park a visit. The thermal waters, pumped into large swimming pools for your enjoyment, are said to ease the body and soothe the mind. The spa is maintained at a comfortable temperature of 38 degrees Celsius and it is said that many people suffering from rheumatic, muscular, skin and respiratory ailments use it.
There are actually plenty of shopping opportunities in Goondiwindi, from a number of gorgeous boutiques through to local produce artisans. Some of the stores that we recommend dropping into include: Aitches Boutique, Goondiwindi Cotton, Goondiwindi Jewellery & Gifts, Little Tots Treasures, Nook & Cranny Bookshop, Pomegranate Passion Café & Nursery, Stage One Fashions, and Suede. There are also a variety of restaurants and cafes to enjoy.
Art & Culture
If you are the kind of person who would rather explore a gallery or cultural exhibit, you won’t be disappointed. Drop into the Euraba Paper Company & Gallery (Australia’s premier indigenous paper mill, whilst the gallery shows work by local Aboriginal artists), the Texas Regional Art Gallery (which shows work from local and other artists), and the Texas Rabbit Works (which remains as a reminder of one of the worst plagues to ever hit our country).
