History documents Brisbane’s beginnings as one of the harshest penal settlements to which the worst of the convicts were sent. Today remnants of the early history are dotted amongst the skyscrapers, providing a mixed bag of architecture and backdrop for a vibrant city-life.

The growth of population required a service reservoir in 1930 at Eildon Hill, around which a third larger reserve was laid out. Eildon Hill gives views over Brisbane, as far as the Glass House Mountains and Victoria Point on a clear day.

Wooloowin

Wooloowin is on Lutwyche Road which was the main thoroughfare of the Windsor Shire (1887-1925), and Wooloowin occupied the shire’s far north-east corner. It was thus an outlying district, despite the opening of the Sandgate railway line in 1882 with stations at Wooloowin and Eagle Junction. The name ‘Wooloowin’ apparently began with the naming of the station.
