  • Didn't come here to see the house but lovely outside and surrounds within the park. Free parking available when visiting. Pleasantly surprised by the themed children's park.  more »
  • So you do have to pay to visit but I think it’s worth it we really enjoyed the ability to go through at your own pace - make sure you go downstairs it was truly amazing to see!!  more »
  • 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.
