Following additional COVID-19 restrictions for the greater Brisbane area (including Moreton Bay Region), History Redcliffe regrets that we must cancel our scheduled September members meeting. The health and safety of our members, visitors and guest speakers is paramount.
Our next newsletter will be out soon so we look forward to keeping in touch with our members in that way. We look forward to resuming usual activities and meetings when it is safe and prudent to do so.
Thank you for your patience and stay safe!

Join us for our next member’s meeting at the Redcliffe Library Meeting Room at 2pm on Friday, 8th November. Author, Jane Smith, will be speaking about her latest book “Ship of Death” which tells the true story of the ship Emigrant.
Jane Smith is a Toowoomba librarian, author, freelance editor and former physiotherapist who enjoys researching and writing about history – fiction and non-fiction, for children and for adults.
Jane has written a series of five children’s non-fiction books about bushrangers, a biography of Captain Starlight (for adults) and the first eight episodes of the children’s historical fiction series, ‘Tommy Bell, Bushranger Boy’. Three of her children’s books have been short- or long-listed for significant literary awards. Jane’s latest work, Ship of Death: The Tragedy of the Emigrant, combines her fascination for history with her interest in the beautiful Stradbroke Island.
