Situated near Kingaroy, Heritage listed Taabinga Homestead was built in 1846 and lives on as one of Queensland’s oldest continually occupied homes. Taabinga Homestead is remarkable, as it remains a working cattle property with many of its outbuildings remaining to give a glimpse of past lifestyles.
Hosts Colin Marshall and Libby Leu share their historic home and offer visitors accommodation, group visits, music performances and a functions venue.
The Homestead boasts extensive mature gardens, walking tracks, abundant wildlife and a number of outbuildings, which survive, from when Taabinga was a large cattle station. Farm tours are available.
A commercial herd of Australia’s Murray Grey beef cattle is maintained at Taabinga.
Taabinga Homestead is centrally located in the South Burnett region of southeast Queensland. Nearby Boondooma and Bjelke-Petersen dams provide excellent fishing and recreation and the Bunya Mountains National Park is yet another major attraction close to Taabinga Homestead.
What others are saying about us
We were made very welcome at this historic homestead. Our cottage, the Singlemens Quarters, was traditional and cosy with a kitchen and fireplace, a great bed and most importantly everything was very clean.
It was a pleasure to stay in a romantic cottage surrounded by an expansive garden and historic buildings, with relaxing country charm just 15 minutes from town.
…we stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it despite some much needed rain falling. Wildlife is abundant and the grounds excellent…history of the homestead is worth reading…(cottage) was very clean and well set up.
