A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT A BIG HOUSE
"Queensland is a place, a people, a history, a climate, an architecture. But it is also a mood, a feeling, a spirit…a state of mind." - John Harms
Little Big House encompasses the rich history, the vibrant energy and the relaxed sun soaked lifestyle that is Queensland
The iconic, heritage-listed Queenslander (originally known as "Collins Place") has hosted a variety of colourful tenants since being built in 1889, including incarnations as a Ship Inn, a Spaghetti House, a squatter’s den, and even a stint as the South Bank Police Station.
From ‘Big House’ to ‘Little Big House’ the venue pays homage to things of old while adding a fresh perspective, balancing charm with cheek, and drawing on images from Queensland's vast flora and fauna, animals, reptiles and creatures, serving it all up with a cheeky grin.
Reopened in the heart of the Southpoint development in South Bank in summer 2017, with all original features restored, Little Big House will take you on a journey…immersing you in a sweaty, humid, sun soaked, laid back, old Queenslander house party where everyone is your mate.
