Layered landscape

ANZAC Square, Brisbane.

Looking north-west from the Adelaide Street side of Post Office Square towards Central Station, facing Ann Street. The Sofitel Hotel on Turbot Street provides a backdrop.

The statue in the centre of the photo is a memorial to Queenslanders who fought during the Second Boer War, 1899–1902.

The memorial features a life-size Queensland Mounted Infantryman. It was sculpted by James Laurence Watts from 1912 to 1919. It is also known as Boer War Memorial and The Scout.

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.
