Imbil, Mary Valley, South-East Queensland
Imbil is the largest village in the lower Mary Valley, in South-East Queensland, Australia, with an estimated population of 600 people. It is in the heart of the region known as Mary Valley Country. Get to know us easily with our eBook.
Just two hours from Brisbane, and 40 minutes from Noosa, Imbil has a warm community with many active groups, and that, combined with its picturesque main street perched on the banks of Yabba Creek, is one of its main attractions.
Volunteers organise an annual country show and an annual art festival, local Sunday markets and a community Christmas party, as well as a busy calendar of events throughout the year.
Visitors looking for accommodation on the Sunshine Coast will find it a great base for their holiday. Camping grounds and caravan parks are available, as well as cabins and B&Bs, and you can take day trips into the Imbil forestry, visit Fraser Island or swim at the beach, coming back to our country peace and quiet in the evening.
Or visitors come to try their luck fishing at Borumba Dam, where the saratoga is a common catch, or to pack a picnic and take the four-wheel-drive for a run to Jimna, kayak on the creek, or to simply soak up the country air and slow down again.
You can do as much ... or as little ... as you like in Imbil.
Keep in touch with what's happening via the Imbil Community News. This monthly booklet published by the Mary Valley Chamber of Commerce is available at local outlets and can be emailed to you. Like our Facebook page Mary Valley Chamber of Commerce.
