The historic

Gabbinbar
Homestead

For 148 years, the historic Gabbinbar Homestead was a wonderful private residence. Used by the Governors of Queensland as their Summer Resort, it was renowned for its beautiful gardens, peaceful ambience and warm hospitality.

In 2012, we officially opened the Homestead with a passion to do weddings differently. Instead of a function venue, we offer a magnificent Estate as your exclusive home - complete with award winning food, exceptional service and breathtaking ceremony & reception locations.

We genuinely believe every wedding should be unique and we guarantee a personal wedding planning experience.

As you discover more about our special location, we hope you fall in love with Gabbinbar Homestead just as much as we have.

Business Owners

Country Feel.
City Convenience.

At first glance, Toowoomba might seem an unusual place for Queensland's favourite wedding destination.

But when you realise that Toowoomba is an easy 90 minute drive from Brisbane, the gateway to Western Queensland and only a short direct flight from Melbourne, Sydney, Townsville and Cairns you will discover that Gabbinbar Homestead is centrally located for weddings from across Australia.

We are surrounded by 3,000 rooms of accommodation and have reliable transport options.

The local Darling Downs region is brimming with memorable experiences for you and your guests before and after your wedding.

The weather in Toowoomba is different to much of Queensland. We get four distinct seasons and being on top of a mountain range it is much cooler in Summer - one of our peak wedding seasons.

Toowoomba is a garden city - made famous by our annual 'Carnival of Flowers'.

SUE - MOTHER OF THE BRIDE

OCTOBER 2018
"My daughter was married at Gabbinbar last week and we were absolutely thrilled with the day. Everything was perfect and I just wish we could go through it all again. The venue is superb, food was absolutely amazing, the service was exceptional, the bridal retreat and services to us there were the best. Photos are spectacular with many opportunities for great memories. Thanks Gabbinbar!"

ERICA BAILEY - CELEBRANT

OCTOBER 2018
"I would like to commend every staff member on their professionalism on the day. But also leading up to that day, staff made contact with me multiple times to explain how it all works at their venue. And to help me understand how my role fitted with theirs on the couples special day. My husband was asked to be the MC with just over 24 hours notice and Gabbinbar went above and beyond to help him in his role as well. Thank you for such a divine venue, with professional staff that made the day that little bit extra special for my couple. Gabbinbar Homestead gets it right! I am thankful for being able to work with such an awesome team of people. And I look forward to working with you again soon."
