What you'll do

The tour will give guests a special opportunity to take a look at some of the oldest surviving woolstores in Teneriffe. Guests will hear about the special place that wool occupied in the history of Queensland, and the living legacy that the woolstores have stamped on Teneriffe.
Learn about the features that made the woolstores special buildings, designed for a particular purpose and a particular location.
You will also learn about the associated industries that occupied Teneriffe right up until the 1970s. Hear how changes in the wool markets lead to the abandonment of the woolstores and the decline of Teneriffe as a suburb. And learn how the area was included in the Building Better Cities Program, from which Teneriffe has emerged as a renewed suburb.

I have lived in the oldest surviving woolstore in Teneriffe for over twelve years. I moved here when I was involved, professionally, in the regeneration of Teneriffe. I have been hosting tours on the woolstores for all of that time and am now President of a local community group dedicated to protecting, but progressing, Teneriffe.

Great insightful tour of the wool sheds. Walked past them countless times and didn’t know any of what Ben showed me. Highly recommend 10/10

Ben is so interesting and has such a great history with the neighborhood. If you’re interested in urban renewal, Ben is the guy to tell you Brisbane’s story of it.

Ben answered the numerous questions I had with insightful information. Being a Brisbane local and having walked around Tenerife plenty of times, you get a new appreciation for the history of the numerous wool stores. Had a lovely hour learning about QLD wool industry.

I bought this tour for my parents in law and they loved it. They found Ben informative and charming. So much so they said they’d like to do more of his tours.
