Rescued from ruin, Glengallan Homestead is a time warp experience.
Glengallan is not just any old country mansion. Uninhabited for more than half its lifetime, it remains frozen in time.The 1867 two-storey sandstone mansion is an iconic heritage place, a rare example of a substantial 19th century country house in Queensland.
Glengallan today is a tribute not only to its visionary builder and to 19th Century craftsmen, but also to the 21st Century team that brought it back to life with a delicately balanced restoration that enables the visitor to experience the best and worst of its times.
Not only it boasts beautiful gardens and landscape, it takes you back to a time where the land was everything that mattered and life was hard but enjoyable.
There is a great cafe "Eliza's at Glengallan" where you can enjoy traditional scones, homemade cakes, damper and pikelets, sandwiches and light meals.
