Heritage and Environment

Our History | About Us | News

The members of the Coopers Plains History Group are dedicated to the production and preservation of the histories that form the local identity of the Coopers Plains region and education about them to the wider community. We include heritage and environmental concerns in our critique of the past, present and future.

The general history of Coopers Plains takes up a large part of the south-central area of the Brisbane metropolis. The early convict outstation & rural community was one of the first non-indigenous settlements in the Moreton Bay province, along with Redcliffe, Edenglassie or the town of Brisbane as it became, and Nundah.
