Champagne High Tea

Please note: the Champagne High Tea is now fully booked. If you would like to go on the waiting list for a booking in the event of a cancellation, please feel free to contact us and let us know. We are unable to guarantee that any cancellations will occur.

After a champagne high tea, guided tours will lead visitors through Ormiston House in Redland City, built by Captain Louis Hope, the birthplace of Australia’s commercial sugar industry.

Visitors will experience a relaxed setting on the verandas so positioned as to capture the view of Moreton Bay to North Stradbroke Island, the very view that Captain Louis Hope and his family enjoyed. Built between 1862 and 1865, the historic house has been home to six different families, an orphanage, and is now owned by the Ormiston Carmelite Community. The original slab hut, one of the earliest buildings constructed on the property in 1853, still stands today, and the slab hut and main house are set amongst the beautiful heritage gardens that include many unique specimens dating back to the time of Louis Hope.

While visitors enjoy a delicious high tea, a guest speaker will bring the stories of this historic time and place to life. Afterwards, visitors can explore the historic house with volunteer guides revealing stories about the past.
