Boonah - Cities, Towns and Localities

‘Heart of the Fassifern’

A must see location for lovers of the great outdoors, Boonah is within shouting distance of several National Parks all of which make for great bushwalking and day trips, or picnics and just relaxing amongst the gum trees.

Located in the heart of the ‘Scenic Rim’, Boonah is the administrative centre of Boonah Shire and the largest town with all facilities and recreation activities one could expect. The town itself is remarkable for the large number of timber homes all nestled amongst the hills and first established in 1882 as a vegetable growing area due to its rich soils and proximity to the Brisbane markets.

Nearby Lake Moogerah is popular with the locals for fishing, water skiing, picnics and camping.
