Additional Notes Wolston House at 223 Grinder Road, Wacol, Quensland comprises the homestead and garden from the Wolston Estate, a large pastoral property originally established by Dr Stephen Simpson in 1852 and extended during the 1860s by Matthew Goggs. After various owners, the Department of Agriculture and Stock resumed the property to establish a tick research centre in 1960. They demolished the farm outbuildings and intended to demolish the homestead also, however this was saved following an intensive campaign by the Women's Historical Society, the Historical Society and the newly formed National Trust of Queensland. In 1965, the house was transferred to the National Trust and became their first property.
