The township of Woombye was established in 1868 as a Cobb and Co staging depot halfway between Gympie and Brisbane. The local area has a proud farming pedigree and Woombye’s quaint high street is only a few minutes away offering a country bakery, butcher, supermarket and plenty of gift, café and dining options.
The Pitcher family have lived in Woombye for four generations and have strong connections to the local community. After purchasing this neglected former cane farm 13 years ago and returning its rolling pastures, Andrew and Jo were keen to offer a more relaxed, spacious alternative to coastal holiday apartments where guests are free to roam and explore. To date 2,000 natives have been planted with plans to establish other local crops including pineapple, coffee, bananas and macadamias for which the area was once famous.
