Our region includes one of the first areas of the future state of Queensland to be explored and settled by European immigrants – and some of the last areas of Brisbane to be “settled.” It enjoys a most interesting history, from Aboriginal times through early settlement to present day developments.
RIHG has researched and published a number of books relating to our region and suburbs. We have published over 18 titles, with topics ranging from earliest settlement to recent events of local historic importance.
“Our 14 suburbs form a patchwork of communities with broadly differing histories, characteristics and social structure – and some similarities. We cannot present a complete history of each suburb here, but we plan to regularly select and upload items of interest about our suburbs.”
