The residents of Gowrie Junction funded and built the town recreational hall by themselves, largely through the efforts of the local progress association.  Library services in Gowrie Junction are provided by the Toowoomba Regional Council’s mobile library service. The van visits Gowrie Junction State School every Thursday and Gowrie Junction Federation Hall every Saturday.

Notable residents
Possibly Gowrie Junction’s best known resident remains Frank Riethmuller, born in 1884 in Glenvale outside Toowoomba, who taught at Gowrie Junction’s primary school from 1899 to 1905. He probably stayed with his newly married sister, Sophia, whose husband August Bischof had a farm at Gowrie Junction. Riethmuller went on to become Australia’s second-best-known rose breeder. He bred ‘Carabella,’ which is to be seen in country towns all round Australia. One of his pupils was a girl who became Sister Elizabeth Kenny, famous advocate of a non-chemical treatment of poliomyelitis.
