“Built in 1859, this living tribute to the Darling Downs’ magnificent pastoral industry is the only significant remaining part of one of the earliest and largest pastoral enterprises on the Downs.
The QHTN funding has been used for essential structural stabilisation. The romantic character ( they have even left the old cobwebs intact !!! :))of the woolshed has been retained, and cutting edge technology educates the visitor about the woolshed’s special qualities, the development of the Jondaryan Station and the township itself.
The western wing has been upgraded as a flexible theatre space for various activities including shearing demonstrations, film viewing, education and dances.
The most magical part of the Jondaryan Woolshed experience is the wide open spaces and unspoiled natural environment. Step back to the beginnings of our pastoral era – watch sheep being shorn, sheep dogs at work, sample the freshly baked damper, take a ride on a horse-drawn cart or take a picnic to eat under the shady trees.
This amazing complex comprises historic buildings, including the timber slab woolshed, machinery, equipment and collections restored over the past quarter of a century.” Click here for details. I really recommend a visit it is like stepping back into the past…
On our 2010 journey around Australia we stayed at the Jondaryan Woolshed camp ground and did the “Damper and billy tea tour” you can read more about that and see more photos here…
