The Cathedral of Saint Stephen Logo and Images

The Cathedral of Saint Stephen

249 Elizabeth Street, Brisbane City QLD 4000

The stones of St Stephen's Cathedral are silent witnesses to the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of generations of Catholic families.

In the quiet corners of this cathedral, those who shed tears of regret have found peace, those who sighed with weariness have gone out with new strength, those who were lost have discovered a way. Under the arches of this building, candles of hope and trust have flickered through the years. Here, those in love have pledged to be true to one another all the days of their lives. Here, they have brought their children to be baptised and confirmed as followers of Christ. Here, they have said their last farewell to those whose death they mourn. Here, on countless occasions, the local Church has gathered around the bishop to celebrate its unity in the Eucharist.

The cathedral takes its name from the ‘cathedra’ or bishop's seat, symbol of the chief pastor and teacher of the local Church. In the cathedral, parish communities find a sign of their fellowship with each other and the expression of their unity with the Church throughout the world. The cathedral is therefore not only an important place for those who use it regularly, but for the whole city of Brisbane as it provides a sanctuary and an oasis of green that invites people to rest awhile.

Leahy Historical House Logo and Images

Leahy Historical House

Dowling Street, Thargomindah QLD 4492

Leahy House was built after 1885 when the Deed of Grant was made to the Thargomindah Newspaper Company in 1885, which was owned by John and Patrick Leahy. The residence was sold to Sir Sidney Kidman, the cattle Baron in 1912. Kidman owned several properties in the Bulloo district, including Bulloo Downs and Norley Station. He wanted a voice on the Bulloo Divisional Board, as it was then known, and he therefore gave the house to his Manager Jack Watts, known as "galloping Jack", because he travelled constantly from property to property by horse. To become a Member of the Board, one had to own a house in Thargomindah. Kidman was elected to the Board in 1906 and was a member for 22 years, until his death in 1928.

The house was built of the original, locally made Mud Brick, and was continuously lived in until 1995, when the Bulloo Shire Council purchased the building for restoration purposes. Funding to assist with restoration was obtained from a Centenary of Federation Queensland Community Assistance Program Grant. Once renovations were completed, the House was then given in Trust for the residents of the Bulloo Shire, to the Thargomindah Historical Society, whose members maintain the Displays and Artefacts for the community, and visitors to the region.

Leahy House was opened as a Historical House Museum on 12th May 2001 as a part of Thargomindah's Celebrations for the Centenary of Federation. The Official Opening was conducted by Scott Fraser, Mayor of the Bulloo Shire in conjunction with John Tully, the Great Grandson of the Hon John Leahy.  Leahy House has four historical rooms, some of which feature permanent displays dedicated to John Leahy, and the history of Thargomindah and surrounding Stations. One room contains Exhibits, which are rotated regularly, with the present Exhibition featuring images of Nockatunga, and the History of the Thargomindah Post Office.  Leahy House is open to the public from April through to October.

Morven Rabbit Board Gate

Albert Street, Morven QLD 4468
The Morven Rabbit Board Gate was constructed at the turn of the 20th century and made all the difference to agriculture in the area. Rabbits were on the move, destroying pasture lands and increasing in numbers at an alarming rate. In a desperate bid to halt the rabbit migration Queensland set up 'Rabbit Boards', and the Rabbit Proof Fences came into being. The fences were designed to prevent rabbits digging under and invading more property. The gates were placed on the highways and were the only gap in the fence that stretched for thousands of miles. Travellers would stop at the gate, open it, drive through and then close it. If you forgot to close the gate you could be fined fifty pounds. The history of the Rabbit Board Gates can be found at the site in Morven. It may not be the Great Wall of China, however, the Rabbit Board Gate was definitely built to keep rabbits out....

By 1884 the town was declining with the best gold areas already mined and by 1887 most businesses closed and the mining ceased in 1890. Today Mount Britton still holds evidence of this once prosperous mining town, with many old mining equipment and materials still on site. There is a lookout, a mining display, and several rustic shelters containing high quality period prints and an information board on the history of the area.

Barcaldine

Barcaldine, Barcaldine QLD 4725
Barcaldine's charming facade, one that has earned it the tag of 'Garden City of the West', hides tumultuous tales of a controversial past. In 1891, five years after the railway push into the outback helped to establish the township, Barcaldine became the headquarters of the great shearers' strike. One thousand shearers laid down their blades in a defiant protest that reverberated around the nation and resulted in the formation of the Australia Labor Party and a graziers' group that later evolved into the National Party. An enduring symbol of the strike lives on today in the Tree of Knowledge, the imposing memorial to the famous ghost gum in the town's main street where the strike meetings were held. Unfortunately, the gum itself was poisoned in 2006, but the memorial built around the original stump is a wonderful display of modern art and timber workmanship. The Australian Workers Heritage Centre is a national project commemorating not just these events, which changed the course of the nation's working history, but is a tribute to all Australian working men and women. Set in over five acres of landscaped gardens, it is also home to the Wanpa-rda Matilda Outback Education Centre, which is a unique residential facility for schools and community groups. Barcaldine is also home to the old world Radio Theatre, complete with its canvas seats, and the working windmill that pumps water into the sculpture designed and erected by the Youth of Barcaldine, which stands outside the information centre. Barcaldine is situated at the junction of the Capricorn and Matilda (Landsborough) Highways. Many visitors use Barcaldine as a base from which to explore central west Queensland.

Longreach War Memorial

Landsborough Highway, Longreach QLD 4730
Volunteer enlistment in WWI was enthusiastic across Australia as was the grief as word made it back home of lost lives, some 60,000 mostly young men during the five year conflict. Land was allocated for Anzac Memorial Park in 1924 with trees and grass planted. Built by Rockhampton stonemason Mr F Allen at a cost £1702, the tall granite needle-like column was delivered in three pieces. Its installation through a series of ropes and pulleys provided quite a spectacle for the residents. Financed through a combined venture of the neighbouring Longreach and Ilfracombe shires, it bears 90 names listed under four headings: Remembrance, Freedom, Unity and Sacrifice. Longreach War Memorial was unveiled by the shire chairman RLH Petersen on ANZAC Day 1927. Set in a park, a set of steps leading up from the highway through town, this memorial remains the focus for ANZAC remembrance ceremonies....

Caves Circuit, Lamington National Park

Lamington National Park Binna Burra Section, Binna Burra QLD 4211
Lush rainforests, ancient trees, spectacular views, extensive walking tracks, exceptional ecological importance and natural beauty make this Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area an outstanding place to visit. From the park's information centre, the five kilometre Caves Circuit winds up through open forest and rainforest to emerge on the road near the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge road entrance. Alternatively, begin this track from the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge road entrance and return via Binna Burra Road. Caution: this circuit contains unstable surfaces. Rockfalls may occur on the track and in Kweebani Cave. For your safety, avoid lingering near the cave-move along the circuit and view the cave from a safe distance. Allow one and a half hours to complete this walk of a moderately difficult grade. The circuit provides excellent views into the Coomera Valley and passes a large red cedar and fine specimens of other rainforest tree species. The major cliff line opposite is of a flow of rhyolite and deposits of boulders and ash (tuff) can be seen in overhanging caves. Possibly the largest intact stand of hoop pine can be seen along the Darlington Range. ...

Cunnamulla

Cunnamulla, Cunnamulla QLD 4490
Cunnamulla locals reckon that in their town, the handshake's stronger and the smile lasts longer. Perhaps that's why Slim Dusty's 'Cunnamulla fella' has become the epitome of bush folk and the bronze statue of him in the main street immortalises the larrikin in all Australians as he sits on his swag enjoying the moment. Visit the Cunnamulla Fella Visitor Centre for a look into this bush legend and to collect maps of town and the many walks on offer. While you're at the Centre, take a look through the art gallery and interpretive displays explaining local history, opal mining, wool production, native vegetation and the importance of the Great Artesian Basin and its precious water. The Cunnamulla Heritage Trail will let you glimpse the region's past including the development of a local pastoral industry that still supports the town today. Walking trails along the river and through the Cunnamulla bush land will encourage you to slide effortlessly into the relaxed way of outback life, but keep your eyes peeled for plentiful native wildlife hiding in the scrub. Of course, one of the greatest pleasures of an outback holiday is having a yarn with the locals. If a yarn over the bar of one of the number of great bush pubs isn't enough, Cunnamulla hosts many regular social events including bowls and tennis, as well as the famous Cunnamulla Fella Festival. The Festival is held each year in November and its program includes country music and the excitement of a professional (PBR) bull ride. ...
