About Ringsfield

map

Ringsfield is a country estate house in Nanango, Queensland, approximately two and a half hours drive northwest of Brisbane. The house has undergone four lives since it was built. 

 

In 1908 Mr & Mrs James William Davies Graham commissioned renowned architect Robin Dods to design a family home for them. 

 

In its second life Ringsfield transitioned into a maternity hospital from 1942 through to 1970. During this time over 3000 babies were delivered.  

 

In 1972 the estate was taken over by Nanango Shire Council and arrangements were made for use by Lifeline Brisbane as a refuge for women and children until 1993. During 1993 the Council gave 6 months notice to Lifeline that they would be taking back control of Ringsfield. The estate was to be used as the shire’s museum and historical centre. 

 

From 1995 the Nanango Historical Society took over the management, restoration and cultivation of Ringsfield in conjunction with the Nanango Shire Council thus turning the run down building into the Gem of the South Burnett. From 1996 Ringsfield opened on a regular basis for visitors and the local community. Over time additional buildings of historical significance have been relocated onto the estate as well as several structures built utilising timber and materials from other significant buildings and amenities which had been disassembled.

 

In March 2017 the society handed back the management of Ringsfield to the now-amalgamated South Burnett Regional Council. 

 

It is now our privilege as the new caretakers of Ringsfield to bring the estate into its fifth life, building upon the work previously completed. 

 

From November 2017 Ringsfield will operate not only as a museum, cafe and tourist destination but also as a restaurant and events venue supporting both the local and broader communities. It continues to draw people from far and wide to experience the beauty, peace and tranquility that Nanango has to offer.
