Tour the luxurious, Victorian-furnished rooms and relax on the wide verandahs of this Colonial Georgian cottage. The site offers picnic facilities, and the area down by the river provides particularly pleasant al fresco dining beneath shady trees.

  • Nice park by the river and all these cool night light features. It feels a bit quiet though at night so best not to go alone. Otherwise during the day it is very family friendly and a very open park but it fills up pretty fast on a weekend picnic scene
  • A beautiful place of history for Brisbane. So fantastically maintained and cared for. Great to explore historically or to enjoy a picnic/afternoon walk along the river.
