New Queensland History Magazine

History Queensland are publishing a new quarterly magazine. The first issue came out in November 2011, I came across it in a newsagency last week.



It looks pretty good. There are some excellent articles including these:
The Ripple Creek Plantation:the first successful sugar mill in the Herbert Valley
The convict who attempted to escape St Helena in a bathtub
The fantastic Corinthian Cup and the Eagle Farm Turf Club and races
And some reviews of new history books. There is also a nice spotlight article on Doctor Rod Fisher a well known Queensland historian.

A definite must-read magazine for anyone interested in Queensland history. Subscriptions are $19.80 including postage to have it arrive in your letter box.
