Glengallan Homestead and Heritage Centre

Warwick, Southern Downs Area

After more than 70 years of decline and dereliction, Glengallan emerges from the ruins of the 1867 sandstone mansion as a unique heritage experience. Walk through time and re-live the Glengallan story from squattocracy to farmer settlement. An innovative interpretation allows Glengallan to evolve with time as old photographs and documents shed more light on life in what was once described as “the finest house in the colony”.

Many facets provide food for thought and further study. Glengallan is ideal for family reunions, workshops, seminars, markets and rallies; available for wedding and professional photography.

The heritage centre cafe, Eliza's, serves colonial fare with modern flair. Midweek group tours and functions by arrangement.

A wide range of locally made souvenirs are available including Aloomba lavender products, Hidden Creek wines and Glengallan's own commemoratives wines: Gentleman Jack, Eliza D, King Billy and Ghost Gate port.

Glengallan hosts markets in the gardens on the first Sunday of March, June, September and December.
