Queensland homes don’t get much more stately than this National Trust–listed mansion, built as a private home for a wealthy squatter in the 1880s. It has 12 guest bedrooms and bathrooms, all with central heating. All suites and many of the rooms have private fireplaces that are lit most of the year, thanks to the chilly mountain nights. It really is a house of architectural delights, from the portico to the domed hall, the leadlight windows and patterned parquetry floors of teak, cedar and crow’s ash.
