Brisbane History West

Indooroopilly and District Historical Society

The IDHS was formed at the end of 2001 to promote an interest in the history of Indooroopilly and nearby districts. The areas of historical interest to the Society cover Indooroopilly, Fig Tree Pocket, Chapel Hill, Jay Park, Moore Park and Long Pocket. The Society meets in the meeting room of the Indooroopilly Library from February to December and we organise guest speakers and members’ nights. Our aim is to foster an interest in the history of Indooroopilly and adjoining districts and to provide a forum for discussion, debate and research into local history and heritage.

Oxley-Chelmer History Group Inc

The Oxley-Chelmer History Group Inc was formed in 1996 with the aim of collecting and preserving the history of the suburbs of Oxley, Corinda, Sherwood, Graceville and Chelmer. The History Group meets 8 times a year, usually at the Sherwood-Indooroopilly Sub-Branch of the RSL at 2 Clewley Street, Corinda (opposite the Services Club). At each meeting a speaker is invited to talk on a topic of local interest. The Group has produced a number of publications. New members are most welcome.

St Lucia History Group

The St Lucia History Group was formed in 2002, an initiative of Judy Magub, the long serving Toowong Ward representative on the Brisbane City Council. Since its formation, group members have met on a regular basis to share their experiences of life in the local community and the findings from individual research effort. Whilst the focus is primarily St Lucia, topics researched do extend beyond the 4067/4072 postcode boundaries, however, such subjects are generally related to individuals or events with a connection with the suburb or associated with its development.
