In just one generation Brisbane has grown from country town to vibrant modern metropolis. Yet it had a tough start. It used to be a blue collar town, struggling under the weight of its history. Prior... More > to European settlement, as Meanjin, it was a busy meeting place for the many indigenous clans in the Moreton Bay area. Almost 200 years ago Brisbane had an traumatic start as a penal settlement poorly run by veterans of the Napoleonic Wars.

Early Brisbane society was enlivened by its own aristocratic Lady Di; a gruesome murder started a dynasty; the Battle of Brisbane was hushed-up to maintain morale; and the local ‘Rat Pack’ played a rather nasty Joke.< Less
