September Meeting Cancelled

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!

2020 Annual General Meeting

The Management Committee of History Redcliffe (t/a Redcliffe Historical Society Inc.) requests your presence at the Annual General Meeting to be held at WD Surveys – 15 Anzac Ave, Redcliffe on Friday 14th August 2020.

After the AGM, afternoon tea will be served. All financial members are entitled to vote for the nominated committee candidates to be appointed to the 2020/21 History Redcliffe Management Committee.

During the meeting we will be screening “A Holiday House Called Rooftrees”.

Looking forward

As the various stages of COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed and rolled back, we are looking forward to resuming our normal meetings and activities. History Redcliffe is committed to the health and safety of our members and friends. At this stage we don’t have a date for resumption of meetings but we will keep you updated with any developments.


The History Redcliffe management committee have decided with great regret to suspend planned events until further notice.

The health and safety of our members, friends and the the wider community must be safeguarded and, as such, the April general meeting and the Redcliffe cemetery walk will not proceed.  We are hoping to reschedule the cemetery walk after this current public health crisis has abated.

We will keep you updated regarding events planned for later in the year and hope to resume normal activity as soon as we can.

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’.

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.
