Once the largest freehold station in Queensland, The Woolshed at Jondaryan is a heritage-listed shearing shed built-in 1859-60. It replaces an earlier smaller woodshed at the pastoral station. It is one of the oldest and largest woodsheds in Australia. The Darling Downs region celebrates its rich, cultural and rural history that has become a part of the landscape.

The Woolshed is open seven days a week between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Enjoy good food and country views at the Woolshed Cafe or bring a snack for morning and afternoon tea to share.

Visit the Woolshed’s website for more information on their facilities.
