Just outside the tiny town of Jimbour on the Darling Downs region of Queensland, lies the historic Jimbour House. Built in 1876, visiting the heritage listed home and it’s expansive grounds is like stepping back in time. The house itself is still a private residence and tours of the interior are only for special events.
The gardens and grounds however are open to the public to explore, and are open daily with a small donation required for entry. This also includes access to the Living History Walk, which offers an insight into Jimbour’s history throughout the years.
The property is also a popular location for weddings and events, such as the Big Skies Festival, Opera at Jimbour and the Women in Ag Day (which I attended).
There certainly is something special about the stately manor overlooking the gardens and plains beyond.
A visit to Jimbour House to simply spend a lazy hour wandering through the magnificent grounds, is a must-do item to add to your list when exploring Southern Queensland.
Jimbour House is a 90 minute drive from Toowoomba, and a 3 hour drive from Brisbane.
