About South Brisbane

Wikipedia  provides a good introduction to South Brisbane. However, to say that ” South Brisbane has emerged as fashionable, high density, modern residential area, given its proximity to the city centre and good public transport links.” leaves out the colour vibrancy and diversity that continues to thrive around the Kurilpa Peninsula.

The suburb shares the upheaval of history with its sister suburb, West End. South Brisbane’s hsitory can be bookmarked by European sttlement, the building of the Railway Station and  World Expo ’88.

Have a look at the Google Images from South Brisbane. There are more images in the South Brisbane History Collection.
