If you ever find yourself with a Sunday afternoon free and want to do something a little different, take a drive to the historic Ormiston House. Known as the birthplace of the sugar industry, Ormiston House is a piece of historic treasure. Here you will find a beautifully restored heritage listed building, Devonshire tea on the verandah, fantastic views of Moreton Bay and a friendly welcome. As you visit each room you are welcomed by friendly volunteers who have a wealth of knowledge. They can tell you about the history of the house itself, its owners and the antiques from the Georgian, William IV, through to the Victorian period.
The rooms have been furnished to reflect the period from which it was built by Captain Louis Hope in 1862, through to when it was owned by John Arthur Macartney in the early 1900’s. There are still belongings from the two main owners including a rocking horse that the Hope children used to play with
Cost: Admission $5 per Adult, $1 per Child
