Jimbour

Jimbour takes its name from Jimbour Station which is a vast pastoral holding that once stretched from the Bunya Mountains to the Condamine River. While the community of Jimbour is small, there is nothing small about the heritage-listed homestead of French classic design and built of sandstone. Now hub of a working grain and cattle property, and a vineyard and cellar door, the house is surrounded by extensive gardens, which were designed in 1923. The beautiful gardens, which once provided a haven for family and community gatherings, is again open for the enjoyment of all visitors. Jimbour Station is where the explorer Leichhardt stayed before setting out on his epic trek to Port Essington. The Dingo Barrier Fence also begins near here, ending 5300 kilometres away at the Great Australian Bight. Jimbour lies 27 kilometres north of Dalby, just a short drive away from the beautiful Bunya Mountains National Park.

Jimbour: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Coral Gardens Dive Site Mooloolaba


Located on the Inner Gneerings off Mooloolaba, the Coral Gardens are like a small section of the Great Barrier Reef on the Sunshine Coast. Lovely hard and soft corals rule this reef in depths from 10 to 15 metres, with the site topography dominated by a series of gutters. It is easy to get lost exploring these gutters, not only as they all look similar, but also because divers get so engrossed looking at all the fish and invertebrate species. A multitude of tropical fish species populate this reef, but divers will also see countless nudibranchs, shrimps, flatworms, sea stars and many other invertebrate species. Also commonly seen at the Coral Gardens are turtles, wobbegongs, eagle rays, batfish, trevally and stingrays.
