As our work gathers interest we will post any media here for your perusal, we hope that we can put videos on i.e. Brisbane Extra so that our restoration work can be seen.



This Q150 project was funded by the Brisbane City Council Community Fund and the State Government Q150 fund and was much appreciated by students, earning the 2009 Queensland National Trustís Community GOLD Award. It is planned to offer Colonial Living History at historic sites as a component of the New Curriculum, with further episodes planned for Tingalpa in 2011. Moreton Bay Environment Centre may agree to coordinate the programme, which could be expanded to include environmental studies in nearby Minnippi Parklands once the long awaited walking/bike track from Container Street to Minnippi is opened.
