All in Places

The secret forest of Cliveden Avenue

Tucked at the eastern end of Cliveden Avenue in Corinda is another world, a remnant of the original bushland that once covered the greater Brisbane area. Walk down the path, over the creek bridge and you are on your way to a delightful and easy circuitous 2 km walk through a pocket of bushland that feels a million miles away from suburban Brisbane.

The world in one school

Milpera State School is an inherently optimistic place. You take children with very little English, very few resources and you turn them into people who are keen to learn and ready to move into society and make a positive contribution.

Over the fence, in Harrisville

Historic Harrisville, less than one hour's drive south-west of Brisbane, delivers a great day out. And during the month of May there is the added attraction of the annual Open Studios of the Scenic Rim weekends. In Harrisville you can visit talented artist Colleen Gardener's art exhibition at the Gardener Art Studio, housed in an old bank building in the main street. Read on to find out all the details.

Lest we forget

I am sure I am not alone when I say that I dash about my daily life very often with little thought about the lives of those who have gone before. So when I decided to write something about this significant monument in Sherwood I took a little time to visit, to contemplate, and to try and imagine.
