Museum of Brisbane’s History on the Hill walking tour explores one of Brisbane’s most iconic suburbs
If you missed the news, Museum of Brisbane (MoB) is bringing back its beloved walking tours! The fact-filled excursions are brimming with history, art, culture and legendary city stories that even the most studious history aficionado would find fascinating. One of MoB’s newest walking tours, History on the Hill, explores one of Brisbane’s most iconic suburbs and is well worth taking strides for.
As one of Brisbane’s oldest and most culturally signifiant residential areas, Spring Hill has a treasure chest of stories, sagas and tidbits just waiting to be divulged. That’s exactly what will happen on Museum of Brisbane’s newest walking tour, aptly coined History on the Hill. It’s on this interactive walking tour where history lovers can climb to the top of Jacob’s Ladder and uncover the grisly story behind the famous Windmill that overlooks The City, dive deep into the Springbok riots of the 1970s, and dissect the tales behind the city’s historical homesteads.
The two-and-a-half-hour tour covers about four kilometres of Spring Hill and its surrounds, along with a whole lot of history. You don’t have to be a professional hiker to hop on this tour either, as it’s suitable for moderate fitness levels and abilities – we only suggest wearing some comfy walking shoes and you’ll be good to go! Want to embark on more knowledge-packed tours? Art addicts can get their fill at the Public Art Walking Tour or sail the Brown Snake on the Tides of Brisbane Boat Tour.
