Just down the road from Westbrook is Doherty’s House. A historic home, built in the 1870s. In 1969 a devasting fire destroyed the building’s wooden rafters, windows, and outbuildings. However, in 2022 works were completed to preserve the important history of the building with the help of architects and conservation consultants.

Showcasing the area’s European heritage, the ruins are protected by Council’s heritage overlay and are about to be revitalised as a new café and meeting place for residents whilst maintaining its local history.
Plans of the proposed Doherty’s House Café will include indoor, outdoor dining, garden, herb and vegetable plots.
Wyndham Council are seeking resident feedback on the plans and also keen to to hear from those interested in leasing the finalised space via an EOI form.
