When Woolloongabba was Wattle Scented

About The McWhirters Project

The McWhirters Project is curated in Brisbane, Australia and publishes original material and images sourced primarily from National Library of Australia's Trove Australia, The State Library of Queensland's John Oxley Library and the National Archives of Australia.

You will rediscover what was where (and what wasn't) in Brisbane and revisit some of the infamous, not so famous and the lost and quirky from Queensland's past. Some posts are irreverent whilst others relevant to the trending topics we are talking about today. Our mission is to reinvent the online presence of Brisbane's history and showcase digitised material from of some of Australia's and the world's greatest digitised collections.
