Neighbouring the suburbs of Cleveland and Wellington Point lies the hidden gem of Ormiston. A mix of established and contemporary homes, the suburb is home to young families and professionals as well as many retirees who’ve settled in the peaceful region.
Ormiston has a number of heritage-listed estates, including Ormiston House, Ormiston Fellmongery and St Andrews Church, providing a window into the farming origins of the regions past. Known as the birthplace of the sugar industry, stunning Ormiston House is the colonial plantation estate built during the 1850s for Captain Hope and his flourishing sugarcane crops. Now run by the Carmelite nuns, you can wile away the hours with high tea on the balcony overlooking Moreton Bay.
Ormiston train station is centrally located, ensuring that access to public transport is just a short walk from anywhere in the suburb. Only half an hour to Brisbane by car, the suburb is conveniently close to buzzing Capalaba offering a broad range of retail and entertainment at Capalaba Central.
With the unique Raby Bay canal estate to Ormiston’s south and Wellington Point to its north, Ormiston locals take full advantage of its eastern aspect and waterside position. The suburb’s lush foreshore gives way to sweeping views of Moreton Bay, and an array of boating companies have you covered for a day cruising on the water. Peel and Stradbroke Island across the bay offer a relaxing daytrip with Stradbroke ferries operating daily services.
