THE National Heritage Festival is an annual event that celebrates the places and stories that make Australia special.

So it seems only fitting one of Brisbane's most significant heritage sites be involved with the event.

The 160-year-old Wolston House will hold an open day on Sunday, April 29, with the theme innovation and invention.

It will showcase the ingenuity and resourcefulness of early pioneers with numerous displays detailing aspects of working life on a farm in colonial days.

Guests will also have the opportunity to watch the Dance Kaleidoscope group perform numerous colonial dances throughout the day.

Visitors can relax and enjoy Devonshire tea and a sausage sizzle during the day's festivities.

Entry is free for National Trust members otherwise admission costs $4 per person.

Administered by the National Trust, Wolston House is a historic farmhouse that dates back to 1852.

The property is an interesting slice of rural heritage located 20 minutes from Brisbane at 223 Grindle Rd, Wacol.
