Forget the 24-hour plane ride to France to walk through the gardens of a French colonial-style country home, just drive to Jimbour House.
Established in 1876, this heritage-listed property in the Western Downs takes its name from Jimbour Station – a pastoral holding that once covered over 300,000 acres of land from the Bunya Mountains to Condamine. Kids can burn their energy as they explore the gardens and play hide and seek behind the huge Moreton Bay Figs, pack your picnic and book into to tick this one off your bucket list.
In recent times Jimbour’s role as a cultural centre has revived. An Amphitheatre in the grounds provides the setting for major cultural events and performances – including the biennial “Opera at Jimbour” sponsored by the State Government as part of the Queensland Music Festival.
Visitors are welcome to tour the grounds and magnificent gardens open daily to visitors Monday to Friday | 10am-3pm | $10 per head.
