Heritage Register

Place Details



This brick residence was built around 1890, during a period of increased urbanisation in Annerley following improvements in transport and civic services. The first owner of the house, John Olsen, played a prominent role in Brisbane’s churches, clubs and societies, including as a founder of the Queensland Musical, Literary and Self-aid Society for the Blind. The house was named ‘Dorinda’ after Olsen’s wife and the property remained in the family until 1972.
