Bringing City History Alive


The Schrinner Council’s newest digital heritage trail takes residents and visitors back to our City’s critical role in this State.

Bringing City History Alive is important to me, and the Lord Mayor, because we know Brisbane is home to some fascinating history to tell. Our new digital heritage trail for the City explores some fantastic routes, and can be scanned to reveal maps, information and pictures.

The Brisbane City Centre Heritage Trail is teh most popular heritage trail and we are delighted to make it digital to increase it’s access to residents and visitors.

It explores 25 local heritage places from City Hall to Spring Hill and returning to MacArthur Chambers.

Through this trail, people can visit Windmill Tower, one of only two surviving convict-built structures in the state, learn about the Great Brisbane fire in the 1860s and our military history and much more.

The trail meanders along our streets and inner city parklands and covers an impressive amount of local history. We encourage you to get outdoors this Winter and take the trail at your own pace.
