GABBINBAR HOMESTEAD

Queensland's Wedding Destination

At Gabbinbar Homestead you will experience luxurious preparation in our Bride's Retreat, stunning ceremony locations and breathtaking receptions. We offer a historic venue, attention to detail and flexibility.

Gabbinbar Homestead is a private country estate surrounded by the garden city of Toowoomba - with all the convenience of close accommodation, reliable transport and an easy 25 minute drive from Australia's newest airport with direct flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Townsville and Cairns.

Due to our extraordinarily beautiful property and close location to Brisbane (90 minute drive West), Gabbinbar Homestead is now Queensland's favourite wedding destination. Yet, despite our popularity we still believe every wedding should be unique and memorable. We guarantee a personal and individual experience; that is why we offer all-day use and wedding planning support.

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'.
