Historic homestead, Jimbour House, is located near Dalby.
The inside of this home is not open to the public as it is a private residence, but the gardens [est. 1874] and surrounds are. I didn't mind, as I found it quite pleasing just to wander around the outside.
The driveway in, has Jacarandas on either side, a picture in Spring when they are in full flower.
Surrounding buildings & gardens are a Chapel (1868) Water tower (1870) Jacaranda Avenue (1877) Rose garden, kitchen garden, Bluestone building (1870) Plaques, Cemetery, and the Bulls stalls and stables historic displays.
At the Cellar door, you pay the entrance fee of $5.50 (2008), this covers the living history walk as well, or you can browse around on your own. Afterwards, if liked, there is free wine tasting, and light meals, tea or coffee & cool drinks.
Jimbour House is located via Dalby (85ks from Toowoomba) From Dalby, cross over the railway line, take the road on the right (82) Jandowae road, sign posts will lead you to it.
