New names out Kilkivan way

GYMPIE councillors voted to tell the Department of Environment and Resource Management they have no objection to the official naming of two mountains and five gullies south-east of Kilkivan, at a meeting last week.

Mount Boo Boo (alternate name Bu'boo) is proposed along with Mount Kilkivan, Bakers Gully, German Gully, Italian Gully, Skibbereen Gully and Star Gully.

The origins of the names were unknown, DERM senior spatial information officer, Ross Norman told the council.

However the names were put forward by the Kilkivan and District Historical Society based on historical records.
