It is located 45 kms west of Toowoomba just out of the village of Jondaryan, and is open daily to visitors. Jondaryan Station was registered in by Henry Coxen, then only 19 years old, who had led an expedition of six men including three convicts and an aborigine to claim land for his uncle Charles Coxen. Life was tough in the early settlement, and Aborigines killed two men working on the station only a few months after it was established.

The famed explorer Ludwig Leichhardt was entertained in the homestead when he visited in September. The homestead was built on an ironstone knob on the banks of Oakey Creek which attracted so much lightning during electrical storms that Coxen decided to dismantle and relocate the homestead to a site two miles upstream where remained until it was destroyed by fire in John Chatman and another man were killed by Aborigines in December and this proved to be the last straw for Charles Coxen who, under pressure from the banks during an extended rural recession, decided to sell the station.

In its first 17 years, Jondaryan Station changed hands seven times and it was not untilwhen William Kent and Edward Weinholt took over its management and ownership inthat it eventually became profitable. With complementary personalities and skills, the Kent and Weinholt era was good for Jondaryan, as evidenced by the commencement of construction of the Jondaryan Woolshed ineven though the Station was often in great debt.

The inscription read 'To Woombrah. At around the same time that Enoggera Charlie wrote to the Sydney Morning Herald another man by the name of Ardlaw Lawrence put forward his theory.
