Jacked up Queenslander

Another example of a jacked up Queenslander house awaiting an infilled ground floor. It stands in startling contrast to surrounding single storey buildings. Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne, Brisbane.

Winter’s Day features neighbouring jacked up Queenslanders on Riding Road, Balmoral.

Winter’s day

Winter’s day, downtown, Morningside, Brisbane.

A great example of a late Victorian Queenslander house, nestled among palm trees.

This single storey detached timber home with corrugated iron roof has so far escaped the trend of jacking them up to provide a second story underneath, like the ones shown below.

South Brisbane Railway Station

South Brisbane Railway Station was constructed in 1891, opening on 21 December. 

In 1930, South Brisbane also became the site of the South Brisbane Interstate Station, as it was the terminus of the standard gauge railway line from Sydney to Brisbane.

Mowbray Park ferry terminal crowned by Story Bridge, Brisbane, Australia

Uber trips invariably deposit me in the city. As parking is restricted and in high demand I nip over the Story Bridge to take refuge in Mowbray Park, East Brisbane; to await the next call to action.
