Welcome to Jimbour

Jimbour is both a tiny village 238 km northwest of Brisbane, Australia and also the location of one of the nation’s most gracious historical homes – Jimbour – built in 1876.

Today heritage-listed Jimbour House remains a private residence with its interior open only for special events.

Visitors are welcome to tour the grounds and magnificent gardens which are open daily for a donation upon entry. The garden entry donation includes access to the “Living History Walk” – an experience of historical plaques, sights and sounds that bring a rich and colourful heritage to life.

Jimbour Weddings

Captivating elegance and the charm of yesteryear are all part of the welcoming and heritage- listed magic of Jimbour.

Established in 1876, the House and surrounding gardens offer an exquisite backdrop for your special day.
