The state Library of Queensland - Out of th Port - Boggo Road Gaol – a new chapter? with Robert Riddel
With the closure of what had become the ‘hell hole’ of Queensland’s prison system and infamous for the rioting of its inmates, so began a new chapter. The site was then master planned as a science park, urban housing development and public transport interchange. The former women’s prison of 1903 was preserved intact but after 20 years its future is unresolved. The talk will explore the potential of this significant site which contains one of the landmark groups of buildings which defined ‘Victorian’ Brisbane.
