Windsor & Districts Historical Society Brisbane
protecting the heritage of an area we love
About the Society
Situated five minutes north of Brisbane’s city centre, the suburb of Windsor is steeped in the history of Brisbane.
As one of Brisbane’s older suburbs, that was part of the original Shire/Town of Windsor (a much larger area than the current suburb), the landscape of Windsor is sprinkled with grand old homes, majestic Queenslanders, heritage-listed buildings and renovated workers cottages. Hilly parts of the suburb boast stunning city views, while the low-lying areas enjoy the calm tranquillity of Enoggera Creek.
The Windsor and Districts Historical Society Inc is based in the former Council Chambers, a quaint old stone building, constructed in 1897 from stone carved out of the nearby Windsor quarry. The old building and quarry are now heritage-listed and can be visited for a glimpse of this fascinating piece of Brisbane history. Visitors to the area can also visit the Windsor War Memorial located in the park opposite the chambers, and admire the beautiful old stone cenotaph, and also the Windsor Quarry Park at the rear of the chambers.
