Jimbour takes its name from Jimbour Station, a vast pastoral holding that once stretched from the Bunya Mountains to the Condamine River. While the community of Jimbour is small, there is nothing small about the heritage-listed homestead of French classic design and built of sandstone.
Now hub of a working grain and cattle property, and a newly established vineyard and cellar door, the house is surrounded by extensive gardens, which were designed in 1923. The beautiful gardens which once provided a haven for family and community gatherings, is again open for the enjoyment of visitors.
Jimbour Station is where the explorer Leichhardt stayed before setting out on his epic trek to Port Essington. The Dingo Barrier Fence also begins near here, ending 5300 kilometres away at the Great Australian Bight.
Jimbour lies 27 kilometres north of Dalby, just a short drive away from the beautiful Bunya Mountains National Park.
