MUNDUBBERA

Mundubbera is a small town encounted when traveling Gayndah to Monto route. Mundubbera is a quite nice town that is servicing a rich and diversified rural region.Mundubbera is also the self-proclaimed "Citrus Capital of Queensland", although this is disputed by the neighbouring (and rival) town of Gayndah. To the highway traveller there is little evidence of any citrus farming.

Mundubbera means either Footsteps in the trees or Meeting Place of the waters in the local Aboriginal language. The latter name refers to the confluence of the Burnett, Auburn and Boyne rivers just upstream from Mundubbera.

European settlement took place in the late 1840s

Henry Zipf planted the first citrus orchards in 1933 and established Mundubbera as a major

Commercial activity is limited, and consists mainly of small businesses supporting local residents and farmers.

There is little evidence of heritage activity. There is no museum for example.

The Mundubbera Hotels are early century classic Qld pubs

The Mundubbera War Memorial has high profile at the town’s busy intersection.

All of the churches are surviving wooden buildings. All look to be very old.

Mundubbera is a nice town and an overnight visit will tempt our traveller And cheeky.
