Brisbane City Sketchers at Kangaroo Point

Shafston House.
It is also known as Anzac Hostel, Ravenscott, and Shafston International College. (which is what it is today)
Shafston House comprises a group of buildings constructed between 1851 and the 1930s, set in substantial grounds with frontage to the Brisbane River. The main house was constructed in several stages between 1851 and 1904 Charles and Mary Foster bought the property in 1883, and are reputed to have demolished the original structure and commissioned FDG Stanley to design a new house on the land. This was the basis for the Gothic structure that stands there now. The house has a varied history with multiple uses.
