Boondooma Homestead was the centre of the original Boondooma Station, which was settled in 1846 by three young Scotsmen. It was originally bounded by the hill east of Proston, Brovinia Creek to the north, Darr Creek to the south, and the Dividing Range to the west – a total of nearly 1,000 square miles.
The homestead is one of the few remaining examples of an elegant wooden home built 1854-55. Visitors can walk through several buildings constructed in the 1850s, and spend time in the gardens, enjoying trees and vines also dating from the 1850s.
Many/some people find connections with family members who lived or worked on Boondooma Station in years gone by.
The Boondooma Homestead Complex has a very well appointed museum, showing local items and an historic photographic display of years gone by.
As Boondooma Homestead is on the north-west gateway to and from the South Burnett region, travellers find it a convenient place to stop and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Natural grass sites in an historical setting are available for tourists. Time limits apply. Toilet facilities are available, however there are no showers. Pets are allowed if they are kept under control. Overnight camping fees are payable to the resident Caretaker.
Great place to stay and if you time it right they might have a event on but be warned it can be full
We have just spent 2 days out here and had a wonderful time with caretakers and our group of 9 Motorhome’s. We have been invited back to spend more time , facilities clean and well maintained
A quiet and relaxing place and made to feel very welcome by caretakers Jo and Graham. Graham is a great story teller of the history of Boondooma and if you’re lucky Jo might dish up some bush poetry with her yummy scones.
What a fabulous place to stay. The managers made us feel really welcome and invited us to happy hour at 5 oclock with the staff. Plenty of room to camp and the facility would be great for a chapter function as there is room for 100s of self-contained RVs. The old homestead and out buildings are available for a self guided tour and this is quite a fascinating historical property. Well worth a visit.
