Victoria barracks a day trip highlight

It was interesting timing at the historic barracks as the base was in the middle of a lockdown exercise but the wait was well spent with a fascinating talk on the Gallipoli campaign, the subject of an exhibition in the officer’s mess.
Built in 1864, the original buildings are characteristic of a 19th century British Empire military barracks. The site was originally called Green Hills as that was the view at the time.
Staff and volunteers of the Army Museum of Southern Queensland led the tour explaining the significance of the buildings which are no longer at the heart of law and order, but are at risk of being redeveloped.
After lunch at the Shingle Inn, recently reopened at City Hall, the group toured the beautiful old building then visited the Museum of Brisbane and climbed the clock tower.
