Home to a landscape of rich red Dookie soil

Located within the rolling hills of Mount Major, Mount Saddleback and Gentle Annie, is the vibrant community of Dookie.

Seasonal colours come alive during Spring with the golden yellow of canola and luminous green of legumes and wheat crops flourishing. During Summer, the countryside is scattered with hundreds of rolls of hay while Autumn leads us back into the spectacular views of the red volcanic sands and sheep and cattle grazing. Absorb it all while walking or cycling the Dookie Rail Trail and Mount Major or hiking the Mulana nin iyoga walking trail.
