We visited Ormiston House today with the University of the 3rd Age Camera Club we both belong to. It is a historical House open on weekends and on special occasions.
Historic Ormiston House was the home of Australian sugar industry pioneer, Captain Louis Hope. It is regarded as one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Queensland. The House dates back to 1862, has spacious grounds and gardens, and expansive views overlooking Moreton Bay. Ormiston House has been meticulously restored and furnished with authentic period pieces.
