Things to do

Nestled amongst hundreds of acres of sugar cane fields in the Herbert River & Hinchinbrook areas, Gowrie Getaway is a great home base for nature-lovers and bush-walkers. Abergowrie is a rural town in the Herbert River Valley, 35 km north-west of Ingham. It was named after a farm selection taken up in 1883 by James Atkinson, where the Gowrie Creek joins the Herbert River. ‘Aber’ (Gaelic) signifies the confluence of the two watercourses.
