Wolston Farmhouse

Wacol

Wolston Farmhouse is the oldest surviving residential farmhouse in the Brisbane region and is ideally located on a property fronting onto the Brisbane River at Wacol.

This historic house-museum dates back to 1852 and is now administered by the National Trust of Queensland.

Wolston Farmhouse

The heritage-listed homestead consists of six rooms, with each room displaying nineteenth century farming life with many authentic artefacts such as horsehair mattresses in the bedrooms, sausage stuffers in the kitchen, silverware in the dining room and a pianola in the parlour.

There are spacious verandahs surrounding the homestead with relaxing cane chairs from which to appreciate the surrounding views. Families may be interested to try some of 'old fashioned' entertainment on offer within the grounds such as croquet, sack races or jack straws.

The Tea Terrace Cafe overlooks the property and is a pleasant spot from which to imagine life as a colonial pioneer. On Saturdays and Sundays you can enjoy a traditional Devonshire Tea on the verandah, combined with a tour of the historic homestead. The tea includes loose leaf tea or French Press coffee with fresh baked indigenous-inspired farmhouse scones or damper with seasonal jams. You can also enjoy an elegant high tea.

Wolston Farmhouse

In a nutshell - Heritage house and property located beside the Brisbane River, offering a unique glimpse into the life of our colonial pioneers.
