Stunning Historic Stays

in Southern Queensland Country

Take a trip back in time when you travel to beautiful Southern Queensland Country, with a stay at one of these unique, historically-significant properties.

From a converted abbey, Victorian villas and 19th century farmhouses to a restored war bunker - along with their charming settings, all of these places have a fascinating story to tell:

This heritage-listed boutique hotel is not only recognised for its design and masonry work but its 145-year-old gardens and streetscape, depicting the prestige of this once popular residential location for Darling Downs pastoralists

Stay in a restored, underground bunker, converted railway carriage, or a self-contained cabin from this top-secret explosive reserve, dating back to 1943. Take a tour of the underground bunkers and see some of the region’s most important WWII history, from old weapons to uniforms and photograph memorabilia

Soak up the history of Charley’s Creek, which provided a reliable water source to European explorer Ludwig Leichhardt and his party during their 1844 expedition through the region. While you're there, stay in the homestead that was built by one of Chinchilla’s earliest settlers

Offering a rare chance to stay in one of Queensland’s oldest continually occupied homes, circa 1846, this working cattle station gives visitors a taste of farm life from the comfort of the heritage-listed homestead grounds

Built in 1910, this stunning Queenslander is steeped in history but has been beautifully restored to give it a fresh 21st century feel crisp, with crisp painted white walls, raw timber floors and luxury bathroom and bedroom furnishings

This heritage-listed bed and breakfast packs a punch when it comes to history – dating back to 1891 and built as a convent for the Sisters of Mercy, the iconic building is steeped in grandeur and oozes old world charm
