Wolston Farmhouse

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Wolston Farmhouse, Brisbane’s oldest surviving residential farmhouse, is a nineteenth-century rural gem located a short drive Northwest of the CBD.

The historic landmark, previously known as Wolston House, is situated in a rural setting dating back to 1852. It was the first property to be taken care of by the National Trust of Australia (Queensland).

The Heritage-listed homestead has spacious verandas overlooking the lush green property and gardens. It has six rooms; each room displays a nineteenth-century rural lifestyle with artefacts such as sausage stuffers in the kitchen, silverware in the dining room, a pianola in the parlour and horsehair mattresses in the bedrooms.

The larder, a meat room, and the Maid’s quarters with a scullery are all in the cellars – the air is cooler down there, and noises can be heard along with the temperature change; there might be some paranormal activity!

Wolston Farmhouse is closed to the public but opens Monday through Friday as The Centre of Excellence for School Excursion Programs, a learning playground for future generations.

Weekends at Wolston Farmhouse can be reserved for private venue hire for unique events and weddings or special events hosted by Wolston Farmhouse.
