In this quiet corner of the world, there resides a hidden magic

In the nineteenth century, Gabbinbar was the summer residence of the Governors of Queensland. They would gather with loved ones and friends to enjoy long lazy days that merged into star-filled nights alive with laughter and promise celebrating the moments that make life truly special.

Embracing these time-honoured values of hospitality, warmth and joie de vivre we continue the tradition today.

Perfectly manicured lawns, meticulously trimmed hedges, and stunning seasonal blooms, create timeless allure.
