Re-enactment of the first European settlement and Indigenous Welcome
2016 we celebrate 192 years since Europeans first settled in Queensland, here on the Redcliffe Peninsula. It was September 1824 when John Oxley sailed into Moreton Bay and decided Redcliffe would be the best location for a new penal settlement. Watch the re-enactment on the beach at 10.30am by local indigenous representatives from the Gubbi Gubbi people and members from the Queensland Colonial Association.
