Southern Downs Retreat
to a peaceful and beautiful Rural Estate
Braeside is the ultimate in Southern Downs Comfort. A
fully restored, 135 year old heritage listed Homestead
set in 1000 acres of Australian bush, Braeside provides
unsurpassed tranquillity, in a serene environment
reminiscent of times gone by. Whether it is wandering
the rose garden, sitting under the wisteria covered
veranda or enjoying the windswept paddocks and
majestic gum trees, Braeside revitalises the spirit.
Braeside provides a luxurious environment in which to
catch up with friends and family or to create your own
romantic memories with someone close to you.
Braeside offers a choice of 3 well-appointed residences
- the Homestead and two cottages, Braeside Cottage
and Creek Cottage, which are fully self-contained and
finished to the highest standard. The beautiful linens,
cosy fireplaces and inviting outdoor living spaces
provide 3 unique Queensland country experiences.
Truly a testament to the beauty and magnificence of
rural Queensland, Braeside Homestead sits
majestically overlooking the banks of Turner's Creek;
facing an old 30 metre tall Spanish Oak tree and
surrounded by a beautiful rose garden. To the west
the Homestead looks across 4 acres of grassy reserve
dotted with majestic grey box gums. Enjoy sitting under
the Banksia Rose covered arbour and watch the sun
set or the clouds roll in during summer storms.
The Homestead Potager Garden combines the
functional nature of the English kitchen garden with the
style and grace of French fashion; a wonderful source
of vegetables for guests during their stay.
Immerse yourself in the peaceful rural environment of
Braeside by trekking on your choice of well cared for
Walking Tracks and Mountain Bike Trails. It's a great
way to learn about the environment and an ideal form
of exercise. Whether you're looking for fun and
excitement, or a new challenge, walking and mountain
bike riding is sure to please.
Build a camp fire by the old slab hut and savour the
aroma as you roast in the camp oven or barbeque by
the creek. Feed the turkeys and black faced sheep or if
you are staying in the Homestead enjoy a hit of tennis.
Beyond the pristine Braeside grounds, you can explore
the Granite Belt and Southern Downs region of world-
class wineries and orchards, the natural beauty with
both the Girraween and Sundown National Parks on
your door step and the many other activities which
abound in the Stanthorpe and Warwick district.
