Dovercourt

ByHarold PeacockMurray Peacock

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
State premiers, government ministers, chief justices, mayors, clergymen, military officers, and war heroes have all walked the floorboards of one of the most historic and yet unknown homes in Australia. Now for the first time the owners and residents of this important house have been painstakingly researched and their amazing stories told. Starting from the mid-nineteenth century, tales include political conspiracy, suspicious deaths, financial swindles, sex scandals, and disappearances. Traditional historical research supplemented by metal detection gives this book a unique three-dimensional mystique that brings the history alive. Dovercourt is a home built in 1865 and hidden away in Toowong which is a suburb of Brisbane, and yet its story incredibly encapsulates the whole of Queensland and Australian history since European settlement.
