An easy drive north-east of Dalby is the historic heritage-listed Jimbour House, circa 1876. This French classic design sandstone homestead takes its name from Jimbour Station, a vast pastoral holding that once stretched from the Bunya Mountains to the Condamine River. Visitors are welcome daily to tour the grounds and magnificent gardens on the self-guided Living History Walk, an experience of historical plaques, sights and sounds that bring a rich and colourful heritage to life. Jimbour Station hosts the biennial event Opera at Jimbour, (next in 2019) where orchestral music and special guests perform for visitors from across the state in the open country air. South of Jimbour along the Warrego Highway is the township of Warra. At Richard Best Memorial Park is the restored former Warra Railway Station. A short walk from the park you’ll find the 1844 campsite of explorer Ludwig Leichhardt.
