Wolston Farmhouse, Brisbane’s oldest surviving residential farmhouse is a 19th-century rural gem located a short drive North West 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 six rooms where you can wander through each room experiencing the comfortable rural lifestyle of previous owners. 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 spacious verandas offer relaxing spaces where you can sit and reflect while enjoying the lush green property. Visitors may be interested to try some of 'old fashioned' entertainment on offer within the grounds such as vintage lawn games.

Our events are held in two places depending on the day or the weather. We hold classes on the deck overlooking the rolling fields behind the farmhouse, and on the green beneith the shade of the the weeping trees.

Classes at this venue include a picnic box which contains an assortment of snacks and a cold drink.
