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.

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 which visitors may wander freely through. Each room displays nineteenth century farming life with many authentic artefacts such as horsehair matresses 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 overlooks the property and is a pleasant spot from which to imagine life as a colonial pioneer. There are also light snacks (sandwiches, biscuits etc.) available for purchase from the kiosk which may be enjoyed from the picnic tables dotted around the property.

On special occasions such as Mother's Day and Father's Day, Wolston House serves a Farmhouse Tea (bookings essential) which features house made sausage rolls, lemonade scones, petit fours and a selection of finger sandwiches.

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