If you are passing through stay at Kobbers Motor Inn for a night or two and explore our wonderful area. Visit Jimbour House. This amazing house on the outskirts of Dalby is full of history and wonder. Jimbour house was built in 1876 and is considered to be one of the nation's most gracious historical homes. From the website “Today heritage-listed Jimbour House remains a private residence with its interior open only for special events. Visitors are welcome to tour the grounds and magnificent gardens which are open daily for a donation upon entry. The garden entry donation includes access to the "Living History Walk" - an experience of historical plaques, sights and sounds that bring a rich and colourful heritage to life. The grounds and Chapel (circa 1868) provide a stunning setting for weddings and the venue also caters for a wide range of functions and corporate events.” “Jimbour also holds a special place in Queensland and Australian history. It was the property from which Ludwig Leichhardt commenced his famous trek across western Queensland to eventually arrive at Port Essington in the Northern Territory.” Take the time to enjoy the area of Dalby in the Western Downs.
