Isn’t it amazing that Australia’s commercial sugar industry started here at Ormiston? This property is both beautiful and significant! Why not come along to our Resident Historian’s 2018 lecture and discover how Australia’s commercial sugar industry was started on the property? It’s sure to be a fascinating talk and we’d love love to see you there!
No need to worry if you missed last year’s sugar lecture by Dr Robbie Mason, as Jessica’s lecture will be discussing a different aspect of the sugar industry at Ormiston. You can even accompany Jessica to see an original sugar pan that was used on the property when the commercial sugar industry was established!
Tickets are only $15 and include a Devonshire Tea on the verandah of Historic Ormiston House, entrance into the grounds and a complimentary viewing of the House.

What a spectacular day at Historic Ormiston House! Grey clouds didn’t dampen the spirits of the guests and the crafters, who all had a wonderful time!
So much hard work had gone into all the craft items, it was impossible to decide which ones to take home! Over 300 people came through the gates of Ormiston House today, making this one of our busiest days of the year so far.
In addition to the wonderful presenters from the Expo, we had a fascinating display from Redlands Spinners and Weavers, and demonstrations by our own crafty volunteer, Lois. We even had a beautiful raffle prize, designed by Helen, one of our volunteers, which was won by Maureen. We hope you enjoy your raffle prize Maureen!
We can’t wait to see what else 2018 has in store for Historic Ormiston House and our visitors!
Thank you to all the crafters who presented today! We hope to welcome you back to Historic Ormiston House again soon!
