A History Lesson

The Old Laravale School

The Old Laravale School is now a privately owned former primary school.

Willmann House, a renovated farmhouse, offers group accommodation making it a great place to stay to take in the delights of the Scenic Rim.

The Old Laravale School also offers the perfect venue (accommodation & workroom)

for your sewing, craft, scrapbooking, yoga, wellness, or training retreat.

Location

Located in the picturesque Scenic Rim region of SE Qld, The Old Laravale School

is just over 1 hour drive from Brisbane, Ipswich and the Gold Coast.

Evolution

The original 1 room school opened in 1900 as the Errisvale Provisional School

with an enrolment of 15 students. 

It became Laravale State School in 1907.

The original building was extended in the late 1950s & then again

in the late 60s to include a library and staff room, pretty much as it is today.

The school ceased being used as a Primary School in the late 2000s,

and was utilised by the Beaudesert High School until the end of 2012.

The Old Laravale School sat unoccupied until we purchased it in October 2015.

New Additions

Willmann House, a farmhouse built in 1907, was relocated to our property in 2019 and now offers renovated farmhouse accommodation for small groups.

It sits on the old tennis court, above the school building.

Sewing Retreats

and an air conditioned workroom in the old school building.
