Set at the foothills of the dramatic Carnarvon Ranges and on the western spur of the Great Dividing Range, Injune is a five-hour drive from Rockhampton. This vibrant community was born later than most in the region. In 1920 men were sent to build a camp to support the development of soldier housing following the end of the great war. It wasn’t gazetted until 1922.
Introduce yourself to some of the town’s unforgettable personalities by taking the Characters of Injune walk. You’ll see people immortalised in statues and be able to read their story as you stroll down the main street. You’ll pass Injune Creek Gallery in the centre of town. It’s well worth a stroll through the local and visiting exhibitions.
Just a stone’s throw from the caravan park, the lagoon offers a picturesque walk brought to life by a veritable aviary of bird species including lorikeets, kookaburras, pigeons, galahs, cockatoos, magpies and more. See how many you can spot in the majestic old gum trees that date back from before the town existed. Injune offers real Australian bush tranquillity and unforgettable characters, both past and present.
