Visit Historic Houses
Built more than 130 years ago, The Queensland Women’s Historical Association saved this beautiful house from demolition. It now serves as a museum dedicated to women who pioneered living in those difficult times.
It is believed to be the oldest house in Brisbane. It was built by Andrew Petrie, one of the first free settlers in Australia. Throughout the 170 years of its existence it housed many interesting persons.
Old Government House:
With historical political significance, this house was where the first 11 governors of Queensland were housed. It even held a ball.
This early homestead preserves what life would have like for the early settlers in the area.
