 Colonial Brisbane Heritage Walk

Take a walk through Brisbane’s colonial past, with your iPod or MP3 player as your guide.

History at your own pace

By downloading our podcast, you can enjoy the rich history of Brisbane—modern Queensland’s birthplace—at your own pace. We’ll take you on a 90 minute stroll to dozens of places of interest and explore their role in our state’s first 150 years.

What to do

All you need to do is connect your audio device to this computer, choose the download suitable for your device and transfer the file.
You can also download and print a simple route map from this web page, with some details of the major sites along the way.
Then, when you are ready to share our journey, go to Reddacliff Place at Brisbane Square, the start point of the tour, and play the program. We’ll tell you everything you need to do from there.

Pause the walk

At points along the way, we’ll ask you to pause the podcast, or you may choose to take a break for photos or a closer look.
Please check that your audio device is able to return to the program at the point at which you paused it.
Some devices shut down after a few minutes, returning to the beginning of the podcast when restarted. These devices will not be suitable for this walk.
