- About us
Tansey is a tiny town north-west of Gympie and about 57km south of Gayndah, the toast of the international cheese-making. The old cheese factory has closed now, along with the meatworks, although there’s still a fair bit of dairy farming going on, along with beef cattle fattening and grain growing - soya beans and sorghum mostly. Lucerne, too, grows well in this alluvial country. Springbrook Farm, just to the north of Tansey, is the headquarters of the VizitOz scheme which provides young backpackers from across the world with the basic skills in Australian bushcraft.
restored and fully operational steam sawmill at Elgin Vale not only gives
visitors an insight to milling methods of the past, but it is a designated
campsite on the Bicentennial National Trail which cuts through Kilkivan Shire
on its way from Cooktown to Victoria.
