Injune is a rural town located in the Maranoa Region, Queensland. It is about 91 km North of Roma and about 173 km South of Rolleston.

When you are in Injune, make sure to visit the Visitor Information Centre. The volunteers welcome you and are ready to help you with your questions. There is complimentary tea and coffee!

The Information Centre is in an amazing building! It resembles a cottage, with its timber walls and floor. It is next to the local library, in the same complex.

Injune

Injune is located in the Great Dividing Range. The winters are cold and crispy and the summers are hot. Today Injune is a thriving little town, with a small population of 461 people. Injune provides accommodation and it is a perfect starting point to explore Carnarvon Gorge.

There is a fantastic swimming pool to cool down in the hot days and the pool is heated in winter. The swimming pool is at Third Ave, Injune QLD 4454, Australia.

Next to the Visitor Information Centre, there is the library. The library regularly houses exhibitions. When I visited Injune in April 2021, the library had an exhibition about dresses. The exhibition was free.

Another very informative article Cris. Your small town articles have given me a different way of looking at the little towns we pass though without stopping. Visitor information centres are a gold mine of local attractions. Congrats on your silver.
