Bankfoot House enjoys a picturesque location alongside the Old Gympie Road in Queensland’s Glass House Mountains.
Established in 1868 as a roadside accommodation house on the new road from Brisbane to the Gympie gold rush, it is the oldest surviving building in the Glass House Mountains. Bankfoot House is steeped in family history. The Grigor, Burgess and Ferris families occupied the house in succession.
Bankfoot House is expected to be open to the public as a house museum in late 2014.
