In mid-September 1824, Lieutenant Henry Miller landed the brig, Amity, on the shores of Redcliffe Peninsula in the Gubbi Gubbi nation and established the First European Settlement in Queensland.
We are currently planning the ways in which we will mark the 200th anniversary of this historic event.
History Redcliffe is proud to be working with the Royal Historical Society of Queensland and Bribie Island Historical Society to present a one day conference on Saturday 7th September 2024 to commemorate the bicentenary of the Moreton Bay penal colony.
History Redcliffe is also planning an event for the following Saturday (14th September 2024). This will be a family-friendly event taking place in the Redcliffe Museum precinct. More details will be available as planning is well underway.
