The Many Lives of Moreton Bay


For those who haven’t seen this exhibition yet, you only have a few more weeks!

Few know the rich and diverse history of this natural treasure located on Brisbane’s doorstep.
The eight month long Museum of Brisbane exhibition of Moreton Bay will end on 12 October. It presents an interesting slice of the history of the Bay, with a North Stradbroke Island display, which includes a section on sand mining.

Initially the sand mining section claimed that sand mining had already been extended to 2035.After FOSI provided the correct information at a meeting with Museum’s Director, attended by FOSI’s President and Vice-President, the Museum conceded the error.

Other changes were also made, resulting in a more balanced presentation.  

If you are interested, there are two remaining curator tours of the exhibition – on Sunday 28 September at 11am and Sunday 12 October at 2pm.

The exhibition is located on level 3 of City Hall, King George Square and is open from 10am to 5pm daily. Don’t miss it !
