Following numerous inquiries from tourism stakeholders and news outlets in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, a Jimna Fire Tower Action Group JFTAG deputation toured the adjacent Conondale National Park and Mary Valley regions on Thursday 7/12/06.Departing Jimna at 8am via Sunday Creek Road and arriving back at 6pm via Mt Buggery (yes Jimna is possibly the only place in Australia where you can literally go to buggery),the party enjoyed magnificent diverse scenery and views from the native hardwood and rain forests of the Jimna and Conondale Ranges to the beautiful salad bowl farmlands of the Mary Valley, highlighted by the serene charm of Kenilworth, Amamoor, Kandanga, and Imbil.

The tropical setting at Booloumba Creek Camping Grounds, followed by the wonderful displays at the Gympie Woodworks and Gold Mining Museums, plus a visit to the Valley Rattler are just a few of the many attractions in this historic and tourist rich area. Tourist brochures were exchanged at all information centres and many business houses along the way, where the Jimna Fire Tower’s role as a valuable tourist destination received absolute unanimous support.
