The site offers picnic facilities, and the area down by the river provides particularly pleasant al fresco dining beneath shady trees.

  • One of Brisbanes oldest homesteads. Worth a visit. Stroll through the grounds taking in the manicured lawns and gardens. Situated on the Brisbane River.
  • What a fantastic place to visit and take a tour of the house. So stooped in history and such a wonderfully personalised tour by the volunteers.
  • Beautiful place to spend the morning or afternoon. Great historical place with a guided tour when open. Also has great views of the Brisbane river.
  • Excellent place for a cruise with an skateboard. Family friendly and picnic friendly. Beautiful view of the Brisbane River.
  • Nice place for a brisk walk in evening. Very peaceful and calm
