  • 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.

  • I am a direct descendant of the Leslie Brothers, through my Mother, my Mother brought me here for my Birthday years ago, I would like to know why this is closed temporarily? Please, I would also like to know whom to speak with regarding this beautiful Historical home. Thank you Mrs. Tonianne O’Brien.
  • What a beautiful place, did not get inside because it was closed but the outside gardens were beautiful. One of the oldest standing residential houses of Brisbane. Even said to have a ghost of a nanny that worked there.
