The town of Bauple is located 37 kilometres south of Maryborough and 53 kilometres north of Gympie, just off the Bruce Highway.

Mount Bauple provides a stunning backdrop to the town and the surrounding farming and bushland. The primary industry of the district is sugar cane. Some remains of the Mt Bauple Sugar Mill that closed in 1950 are still visible in Mill Street near the QCWA clubhouse.

Bauple is the home of the macadamia nut, first discovered by Europeans in 1858, and native to this area. They are known locally as bauple nuts.

Bauple boasts a museum, a community men’s shed, a band hall and a recreation ground with excellent facilities.

Step back in time at the Bauple Museum in the heart of town. The museum is open 7 days a week from 10am to 3pm and is set in colourful gardens with picnic tables and free BBQs.

On display in the museum is a treasure trove of memorabilia, including old photographs, family histories, war records, rare coins, antiques and collectables.

Bauple hosts an annual Bauple Nut Fest in November and visitors are ensured of a great day out.
