Woolshed at Jondaryan

Brisbane & Around

About 45km west of Toowoomba, the Jondaryan Woolshed Complex is the oldest and largest operating woolshed of its kind in the world. The place offers an interesting glimpse into rural Australian life, with a collection of antique tractors and obscure farm machinery, as well as an animal nursery and regular blacksmithing and shearing demonstrations – call ahead or ask at reception. There's rustic accommodation here too.
