Self-Guided History Walks

Over time, I plan to write a series of walking tours of Brisbane’s inner Southside. They will be available as a PDF document and map which can be printed or read from a soft copy. I am also recording them using the Wikiloc app which will allow you to follow the route, as well as read the same text as in the PDF and see more historic images on your journey through time.

My walks are aimed at those who are looking for a little more detail than is usually included in a walking tour and are largely based on my published blog posts and other personal research.

1. Highgate Hill History Walk

This self -guided walk covers the area around Highgate Hill itself and looks at some of the people who have lived in the suburb and their homes.

2. South Brisbane and West End Riverside Walk

This walk follows the bank of Maiwar, the Brisbane River, from South Brisbane to the locality of Hill End, in the suburb of West End. Whilst there are some surviving heritage sites along the way, much will rely on the walker’s imagination.
