An old remnant structure that is now basically a stone tower with no other indication of the watermill. There are some parks nearby so you can see it on your way.

This is an old windmill, that unfortunately looks like an ancient windmill. The mill is located on the steep hill, next to King Edward park. Skip it.

This park has the windmill and 3/4 original water storage tanks Brisbane used to gravity feed water out to the city. Pretty amazing stuff when you look at it all. Nice park to relax in. Bit of Brisbane’s history.

Great old building (the oldest in Brisbane). The Old Windmill is actually the 13th point of interest on the Classic City Centre Heritage Trail; a self-guided walk that is well worth doing. Check out the Heritage Trail on the official Brisbane website.
