Hanworth House - stay in a piece of history

Hanworth is more than a place to stay. Home to the original Portmaster of Brisbane, Hanworth has been a home, a hospice and a haven, but always a residence with heart, benefiting those who lived there and the community for over 150 years.

In 2014, newly restored, Hanworth opened its doors to welcome travellers and residents alike, providing affordable and award winning accommodation on Brisbane City’s doorstep.

About Me
Marisa Vecchio AM DUniv is owner and “Chief Executive of Everything” at beautiful Hanworth House, one of Brisbane’s oldest residences. Previously Marisa was a national CEO, business leader and company director for nearly 20 years, winning the 2004 Queensland Telstra Business Woman of the Year. In 2012 Marisa took on her biggest challenge, the restoration of historic Hanworth House which was tragically attacked by arson only weeks from opening. Like a phoenix, it rose from the ashes to open on its 150th birthday and now offers boutique accommodation and events. Hanworth has been accoladed in winning the 2014 Qld Heritage Council Gold Award, the John Herbert Memorial Award for most outstanding nomination and 2015 Premier’s Sustainability Award. Marisa relates to all things philanthropic. Having been a member of Zonta International for over 20 years, she has been President and Committee Chair. Hanworth itself raises more then $100K annually for the Qld Ballet, Women's Legal Service Qld, Dementia Australia (Qld) and Mater Foundation benefiting breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. All these causes are close to her heart. In 2017 Marisa took out the Dancing CEOs Fundraising Award benefiting Women's Legal Service Qld, and is the highest fundraiser in the history of Dancing CEOs. In the same year, Marisa was recognised for her corporate and philanthropic works in being awarded both an Order of Australia as well as the Qld Community Foundation Community Philanthropist of the Year. In 2019 she was accoladed with an Honorary Doctorate from Qld University of Technology for her contribution to the university and community. Marisa believes that business has only one goal - and that is to make communities stronger and build a better world.
