Manly War Memorial


A Brisbane bayside soldier statue memorial has had a harsh life in serving to remind its community of the 16 local men who died in WWI. The original Carrara marble soldier statue above a plinth was unveiled by state parliamentarian WH Barnes MLA in March 1921. The designer and stonemason are unrecorded.

Names on the front of the plinth are those of men from Manly who died in WWI. The western face bears the names of locals who died in WWII.

Years of vandalism culminated in the marble statue being pulled from the pedestal and the head broken off in 1992.

A concrete replica replaced the statue in 2007.

Manly Harbour Village


Manly Harbour Village is the nearest point from the Brisbane Central Business District to access Moreton Bay and included in the Southern Moreton Bay Tourist Drive.

Nestled beside the Manly Boat Harbour, it is Brisbane's gateway to the Moreton Bay Marine Park with its pristine waterways and fascinating islands. Manly Harbour Village still displays glimpses of her fishing village past and has maintained a friendly village atmosphere while providing an eclectic mix of shopping experiences.

With a wide variety of eating venues, Manly Harbour Village can delight every palate. Choices range from great coffee shops to ethnic sensations of Irish, Indian, Chinese and Thai dishes, along with modern Australian cuisine and outstanding seafood restaurants. At almost every bar, cafe and restaurant, the gourmet delight is complemented with glorious views of the harbour.

Ormiston House


Historic Ormiston House was built in the 1860s by Captain Louis Hope, who was to become known as the Father of the Australian Sugar Industry. The house is surrounded by 14 acres of equally historic grounds and gardens overlooking Moreton Bay, a beautiful setting for one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Queensland. Ormiston House is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register.

The house and its grounds have been carefully restored over the past 44 years, funded by the fundraising activities of a volunteer committee and a team of dedicated volunteers. Throughout the year, Ormiston House has a busy and varied calendar of open days and special events that attract many visitors and tourists to sample the delights of the house and its surrounds. There are occasions that celebrate the house's strong Scottish connection, its history and its beautiful gardens; several Concours d'Elegance, Mother's Day High Tea and elegant Edwardian Tea Parties on the verandah.

Thorneside: Events

Jan Power's Farmers Markets Manly


Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods.

The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets.

Jan singularly pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food. Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, a market on Sundays in Mitchelton, and a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place that attracts some 5,000 city workers and residents!
