Dr Beal has traced the European history of the Gowrie Junction area, from 1841 when the first squatters arrived, through the struggle to establish bona-fide selectors to the trial and tribulations of those selectors to find products they could successfully produce and sell. After many starts, they settled on dairying, and this industry drove development in the district for many decades. In recent decades, the character of the district has changed. The many dairy factories have gone, as have the wool scour and the several hotels and churches. The area is now virtually a suburb of Toowoomba.
