Have you heard of a fantastic organisation called Queensland Womens Historical Association (QWHA)? Dont be fooled by the name, they are a lively organisation composed of both male and female members, all deeply enthusiastic about preserving and promoting Queenslands heritage, now situated at Miegunyah House Museum in Bowen Hills. 

Miegunyah first opened as a house museum in June 1968. The c.1886 Queenslander sitting quietly in its tranquil garden, is also home of the QWHA, the repository for its collection, and gracious venue for its regular program of historical talks, themed exhibitions, seminars and social events. Miegunyah is open to the public for tours and Devonshire teas. Miegunyah is also available for group visits, special interest groups, corporate and private functions. QWHA holds history related talks in the formal dining room.

To book a tour of Miegunyah or become a member of the QWHA I encourage you to visit their website for more information. https://www.miegunyah.org/index.php?location=Welcome

David, just tried to drop some items off at the office on Racecourse Road but hadn’t realised you closed for lunch. The library said they had no collection point. Is anywhere open this weekend for donations please?
