Preserving it for the Future

New Farm & Districts Historical Society is a community-based organisation working to gather information from the past, preserving it for the future.

As a locally based organisation, the society promotes an understanding of the history of the area and how it evolved from one of Brisbane's earliest settlements to the present. You can find us in our office, at the monthly meetings, or by contacting us directly.
