boom, gloom, return from ruin
Glengallan is not just any old house. Uninhabited for more than half its lifetime, it remains frozen in time.The 1867 two-storey sandstone Glengallan is an iconic heritage place, a rare example of a substantial 19th century country house in Queensland. Glengallan today is a tribute not only to its visionary builder and to 19th Century craftsmen, but also to the 21st Century team that brought it back to life with a delicately balanced restoration that enables the visitor to experience the best and worst of its times.

Southern Downs - it all starts here...
An hour's drive from Toowoomba and two hours from Brisbane, the Southern Downs, centred on historic Warwick on the banks of the Condamine River, together with nearby Stanthorpe and Granite Belt food and wine attractions, offer the perfect destination for a day or two in the country. Dating from 1840, the earliest pastoral settlement in Queensland, Warwick retains some of Queensland's finest sandstone buildings as well as stunning natural attractions and motor and horsesport events, including the famous Warwick Rodeo held annually in October.
