A unique blend of colonial history, grandeur and charm, the heritage-listed Jimbour House is situated in the tiny village of Jimbour, 238km northwest of Brisbane.
The stately homestead was designed by Brisbane architects Richard Suter and Annesley Voysey. Construction commenced in 1874 with 200 workmen employed to work on the project, which utilised local sandstone, cedar from the Bunya Mountains and slate imported from Wales. Jimbour House is now a heritage-listed private residence that opens its doors for special events.
The driveway to the manor is lined with opulent jacaranda trees, which give way to ornate iron gates before guests are swept up to the porte cochère, gravel courtyard and colonnade of lofty stone pillars on the western side of the house.
Explore its manicured grounds and magnificent gardens and you’ll soon stumble across the swimming pool, fishpond, water features, tennis court, fruit orchards, kitchen garden, workshops, stables, amphitheatre, aircraft hangar and airstrip, in addition to the various outbuildings, courtyards and vineyard.
With its sheer scale and unique aesthetic, it was always intended for Jimbour to perform many purposes beyond that of a family residence.
Now, with a variety of well-appointed venue spaces, the property is enjoyed by a vast array of guests participating in weddings, private celebrations, concerts and cultural events, including the highly regarded Opera at Jimbour.
