About Ormiston

Get directions

Ormiston is 25km south east of Brisbane CBD and lies within the Redland City Council area. Land around Ormiston was bought in 1853 by Captain Louis Hope, a Scottish aristocrat and a founder of the Queensland sugar industry. Hope built Ormiston House between 1858 and 1865. Ormiston House is one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Queensland. The property was originally called Woojanness, but was renamed Ormiston after the Hope’s family ancestral village of Ormiston, Scotland
