Voices of the Brisbane River and their Bellevue connection

In addition to the Conducted Tour of heritage-listed Bellevue Homestead, there will be special displays and publications of (a) The Explorers of the Brisbane River (and what they said about the country around Bellevue/Wivenhoe Station) and (b) The Kings of the Brisbane River (and their palaces).

The Tour of Bellevue Homestead takes an hour and includes background information about the first European Settlers of the Brisbane River Valley and their dwellings and the features of the 40 rooms in Bellevue Homestead. The tour will include information about the activities of the Bellevue’s owners over the years, starting with sheep, then general cattle, then a Hereford Stud, before the relocation of the Homestead to Coominya (during the building of the Wivenhoe Dam), its restoration by the National Trust and its present-day activity as a visitor venue with tours and Devonshire Teas from 11am – 3pm each Sunday.

The special Australian Heritage Festival Event will be displays and publications for sale about:

(a) Voices of The Explorers of the Brisbane River ( Thomas Pamphlett, John Oxley, Edmund Lockyer, Allan Cunningham and Patrick Logan )

(b) Voices of The Kings of the Brisbane River and their palaces ( Thorns, McConnels, Harrises, Taylors, Lumley Hills and Somersets ).
