A History Lesson

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

Willmann House offers farmhouse accommodation & is 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, training retreat.

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

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

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

and 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.

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.

Our Sewing & Craft Retreat Package includes accommodation and a workroom in the old school building.

Retreats can be booked midweek or on weekends.
