Front Row Theatre Inc

Cnr Racecourse Rd and Rossiter Pde, Hamilton QLD 4007

Our aim is to mount 3 productions each year using Hamilton Town Hall as our home base.

We welcome new volunteers, whether experienced or novice. While many people think instantly of being on stage – and we do run open auditions wherever possible – there is always room for extra hands to design or construct sets or costumes, operate lights, crew a show or staff front of house. The good part is, if you volunteer with us, your commitment can be as extensive or as restricted as you choose.

We are also keen to support other community organisations so if you have a fund raising idea you think we can help you with, please make contact and we’ll see what we can do!

Jean Howie Drive, Morningside QLD 4170

Villanova Players was formed in 1948, and has been producing plays and nurturing the theatrical talents of the people of Brisbane for over sixty years.

With the rebuilding of the hall, we moved to the recently vacated St Luke\\\\'s school building in Taylor St Buranda, Brisbane, and converted the ground floor into a 120 seat theatre with a well equipped stage.

In late 2000, we moved our productions to the McElligott Theatre in St Lawrence’s College, South Brisbane.

Since the start of 2004, we have been performing our major productions in the theatre at the Morningside Campus of the Southbank Institute of TAFE, Clearview Terrace, Morningside, and the Hanrahan Theatre, at Villanova College, Coorparoo.

Lynne & John Boyce share their intimate knowledge of the Whitsunday water wonderland and welcome you to their yacht "Sydney Sundancer", which has been likened to a five star floating resort. Sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, reef walking, whale watching, uninhabited island exploration and gourmet meals together with award winning wines are just some of the daily highlights.

It’s hard for visitors to choose from so many vessels operating in the Whitsundays’, but we believe, as a husband and wife team who are extremely passionate about the area, that we offer our guests a very very special experience. Not only are we the only charter yacht offering shared cruises (cabin bookings) based at Hamilton Island, but we are also the only charter yacht in the Whitsundays offering 7 day 7 night expedition voyages of discovery. Another very important consideration when choosing your vessel, is if there will be children aboard. We guarantee that if you book a cabin, there will be no person aboard aged less than 18, because guests who wish to have a family holiday with their children, are required to privately charter our yacht.

Eagle Farm Road, Pinkenba QLD 4008

During WWI, the Pinkenba wharves on the Brisbane River were the point of embarkation for many Australian troops, including members of the Light Horse. Not far from where soldiers were waved off, a solid cairn memorial stands remembering those who did not return. The Pinkenba monument unveiled by His Excellency the Governor Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams on 16 August 1919, records the names of 42 men who enlisted from the Toombul district, eight of whom died. This memorial features the bronze work of skilled Norwegian migrant Ernest Gunderson, also known for his war memorial commissions in Gayndah and Dalby. A plinth of cast rusticated-finish concrete blocks supports an obelisk-like bronze pedestal with Doric columns at each corner. This section contains the honour roll. A small dome sits atop a square platform with an upright artillery shell and a laurel wreath, all in bronze, projecting from the dome. Pinkenba's war memorial is not intact: miniature bronze mounted troopers and soldiers have long since disappeared. A WWII memorial plaque, set on a basalt stone, sits nearby, recording local enlistments and the four who died.

129 Oxford Street, Bulimba QLD 4171

Take a close look at the sprawling weeping figs on trendy Bulimba's Oxford Street: they are what's left of a living tribute to serviceman killed in action in WWI. The trees, planted between 1919 and 1923, flanked three sides of the memorial park, dedicated in November 1919. Name plaques were once attached. A wrought iron arch bearing the words 'Memorial Park' presents a formal gateway to the park and a lectern-like concrete pillar bears a brass memorial plaque to the soldiers, sailors and nurses of Bulimba who enlisted. Local fundraising also enabled the park's two-storeyed grandstand to be built, in 1923, as a further memorial. Its architect is thought to have been GMH Addison who designed the ferry terminal building at the end of Oxford Street. The 4.6ha park is a popular place for family outings, picnickers and sport year-round.
