Goondiwindi is situated on the Queensland and New South Wales border and is at the junction of the Newell, Cunningham, Leichardt, Barwon and Bruxner Highways. It is a modern, progressive town with an exciting future. Some 5000 people live in the town with a further 6000 in the surrounding Waggamba and Moree Plains Shires for whom it is the major centre for business, shopping and entertainment.
The MacIntyre River, which forms the State boundary between Queensland and New South Wales, is the lifeblood of the area, providing water for the town, stock, irrigation and various industries. Goondiwindi is the commercial hub of a vast agricultural and pastoral sector, which produces pork, wool and cotton for domestic and overseas markets. Waggamaba Shire is one of Australia's primary production regions.
Country people are known for their warm hospitality and the people of Goondiwindi and districts are no exception. The townspeople are rightly proud of the town's appearance with the tree-lined streets, public parks and beautiful gardens.
