James Farmhouse, Cottage & YURTS


James Farmhouse, Cottage & Yurts are situated in the heart of Ballandean and the Southern Downs, Granite Belt. You’ll see beautiful Australian countryside: rocky cliffs, eucalypt forests, vineyards and golden crops and you’ll find our Farmhouse nestled in these beautiful landscapes. You may even see the kangaroos and parrots.

Ballandean is one of Queensland’s premier wine regions with over 45 cellar doors, wineries and vineyards. You’ll get to sample great wines complemented by excellent cuisine and stunning views.

The Farmhouse and Cottage are both fully self-contained.  

Summer Days are warm & colourful with cooler nights, refreshing evenings filled with the warm scents of the day just gone.

Autumn heralds the earthy, sweet scented richness with its patchwork of golds, browns, reds and greens.

Winter is where the skies are a brittle blue and the earth beneath is a black and white backdrop to the bright Winter fruits and warm reds of the Granite Belt Wine countryside.

Spring is the awakening of our world after winter hibernation. Colours are vibrant and abundant with blossoming flowers, fruit and wines, the temperature is cool with a hint of the Summer heath to follow
