"Great if you drive through it"

Lived here for a year..People are utter snobs, They think they are better then the rest of Queensland...If they don't know you they don't want to know you...Old hiddy biddy gossip is thriving in that town...They look at you up and down...Best thing about the place is the road that goes through it.

"I love this town and never want to leave"

I moved to this town to retire with my husband. It is a great community full of people who enjoy a laid back lifestyle. Everyone is very friendly. Never want to leave.

"A fabulous, friendly town."

My wife and I moved to Boonah just over two years ago, and we cannot praise this little town highly enough!. The people are friendly, It has all the facilities we need, it has a wonderful country feel, and yet only an hour from Brisbane. We are continually impressed with the younger people in Boonah as well, who in our experience are unfailingly polite and courteous. Good food, great atmosphere, and a terrific lifestyle thrown in, we cant think of anywhere else we have lived that comes even close!

"So right! We also love boonah"

You're so right about Boonah becoming quite the place to be!

We moved here two years ago from Brisbane and have never looked back.

Love the community spirit, especially with more people becoming more aware of their environment. We can get all our organic food locally and there is even a Boonah organisation for sustainable living.

The local cafes have also impressed our friends - meals really are on par with some of the best we have eaten. It's nice to be able to get a genuinely great coffee too.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the future. We don't want 'our' little town to be found out by too many people ... maybe we should stop raving!

Love the golf course too!

"An up and coming little town ..."

Boonah is fast turning into quite the place to be..

This little town has five coffee shops, four pubs, two art galleries, three butchers, three fruit shops, two supermarkets, a cinema, cultural centre and a rapidly growing variety of little specialty shops to make up the High Street.

A few years ago, after midday on a Saturday and all of Sunday the town centre would simply shut down, but nowadays it's buzzing with locals and tourists in search of breakfast or lunch out, or simply a fresh loaf of gourmet sourdough and some shopping. Boonah has it all now.

There are markets each weekend and a growing appreciation of the beauty of this thriving Scenic Rim region. Boonah also has its own hospital, schools (including private primary school) and golf range.
