Winchcombe Carson Woolstore
FREE EVENT

Unlock the history of the Winchcombe Carson Woolstore, the oldest surviving woolstore in Queensland. This attractive Federation era design building contains over one million bricks!

Following the demise of the wool industry, parts of the woolstore were used for various commercial and storage uses between 1981 and 2001, and then converted into its present uses in a phased redevelopment, and was heritage listed in 1992.

The tour will also visit the adjoining London Warehouse. Visitors will be given directions to continue a self-guided tour of Teneriffe, or to continue to New Farm along the Brisbane River.

This tour is delivered by Teneriffe local Ben Prichard, if you want to know more about the area? Ben runs fascinating Airbnb experiences The Woolstores of Teneriffe  and Explore Urban Renewal in Newstead

Tour meeting point: Foyer of 54 Vernon Terrace, Teneriffe
