We had a few days in the small town of Injune, staying at the Rodeo Grounds/Race Course just to the south of the town. Injune is only small with a population of less than 500. It is the southern gateway to Carnarvon Gorge National Park. The town was possibly named after the property established in 1858 by Haly brothers. The property was called “Ingon” which was the Gungabula Aboriginal word for “sugar glider”. Somewhere along the line the spelling was changed to Injune.
The town itself consists of a Roadhouse, Post Office, Hotel, small IGA Supermarket, Pharmacy, Cafe and Visitors Centre. There are a couple of other shops related to farming including a Mitre 10 Hardware Store. Like a lot of small country towns that is one of its major attractions. Not overrun by tourists, quiet and peaceful with just enough facilities to get by.
There is a water hole/creek on the lower edge of town with a walking trail. There are only half a dozen streets in its entirety.
