Queensland has a complex and colourful past stretching back 155 years. We have lost many of the best stories in our history and Boolarong Press is committed to making sure that we do not lose any more. In November 2011 they released the first issue of History Queensland magazine. Published quarterly, it provides an interesting assortment of articles on the history of Queensland’s people and places. Well-known and relatively unknown stories of past triumphs and tragedies are recounted vividly alongside photographs and illustrations. These stories are researched and written by both amateur and professional historians to cover the full range of stories this great State has to offer.
