About the project

Barambah Station is a landmark working cattle property of great heritage significance. It is located south of Goomeri in the heart of the South Burnett Region in South-East Queensland.

The property consists of a homestead built in 1906, designed by Bundaberg Architect Faircloth and a series of farm outbuildings dating from the 1860's and 1880's. These outbuildings included a hayshed, coach house, bull pen/feed shed, dairy and garage/workshop.

In 1967 the homestead was extensively altered including removal of much of the original planning, walls, ceilings and joinery. The original farm outbuildings were not maintained or used and subsequently fell into disrepair and were abandoned in favour of new metal shed structures. The original garden and fences also fell into decay.

The current owners acquired the property in 2000 and commissioned a conservation management plan to understand the place and its significance. This plan provided policies to guide the conservation and adaptive reuse of the buildings.
