The historic

Gabbinbar
Homestead

For 148 years, the historic Gabbinbar Homestead was a wonderful private home. Used by the Governors of Queensland as their Summer Resort, it was renown 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 just as much as we have.

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'.

"From the moment we arrived at 8am to the moment we left after 11pm this venue was amazing. Every detail was taken care of the level of service was above and beyond. We did not have to ask for anything. Food served in the bridal retreat was beautiful and a shout out to the chef as it was the best gluten free bread I have ever eaten. It was my niece's wedding and I could not recommend them highly enough..."
