The historic

Gabbinbar
Homestead

For 148 years, the historic Gabbinbar Homestead was a private residence used by the Governors of Queensland as their Summer Resort. This charming Homestead 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 for your special day - complete with award winning food, exceptional service and breathtaking ceremony and 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.

Queensland’s wedding destination, Gabbinbar Homestead is centrally located for weddings from across Australia. 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.

Toowoomba has over 3,000 rooms of quality accommodation available so your guests will have plenty to choose from. Plus, numerous transport options including Uber makes the 10-minute drive from the CBD to Gabbinbar Homestead nothing but convenient.

The local Darling Downs region is brimming with memorable experiences for you and your guests before and after your wedding. Quickly becoming the foodie capital of South East Queensland, Toowoomba offers numerous paddock to plate experiences and a coffee culture to rival any Melbourne laneway.

The weather in Toowoomba is different to much of Queensland. We are lucky enough to enjoy four distinct seasons and being on top of a mountain range means it’s much cooler in Summer - our peak wedding season.

Once only known as the garden city, Toowoomba now boasts so much more. It’s a booming regional city providing the perfect balance of country charm mixed with modern convenience.

NOVEMBER 2018
"A huge thank you on behalf of Geoff and myself for an absolutely show stopping experience on Thursday. You run a very tight ship with impeccable service and attention to detail. Both Geoff and I speak for all of our guests and family when we say our wedding at Gabbinbar was an unforgettable experience. A big thank you to the Wedding Planning Team who, at 10 minutes before the ceremony, managed to make 2 x emergency buttonholes (LITERALLY SAVED THE DAY!) Thank you again!"
