Once you’ve finished up at the Woolshed, head 3 minutes up the road to visit state heritage-listed St Anne’s Church. It is one the earliest surviving churches on the Darling Downs and one of the oldest in Queensland. The farming station of Jondaryan had a ‘village’ for its employees and their families that included this beautiful timber church that was built in 1859.
For lunch take a leisurely country drive to the village of Goombungee. Check out Goombungee Antiques and Café or grab an authentic country pub meal at The Pioneer Arms. After lunch, you can browse the beautiful artworks at the Rosalie Gallery. If you’re in Goombungee in November or December you’ll be welcomed by the town’s main street of mature jacaranda trees putting on a stunning show of purple flowers.
For your final stop, watch the sunset over the Darling Downs from the summit of Mount Kingsthorpe at Emmanulla Drive, Kingsthorpe. Bring some sturdy footwear for a 35-minute, steep bushwalk to the summit or take it easy and enjoy the view from the car park a bit further down the hill.
