New Year New Edition

Welcome back everyone. We hope you all had a great break and are ready for another year of fascinating local history here on our blog. A little over 10 years ago the (then) Jondaryan Shire Council, Oakey Library, won some grant money in the Queensland Stories grant from the State Library of Queensland to put together a publication of local history knowledge. The project aimed to document personal experience of life, both in and around local buildings. The book covers:

  • Stedman’s Garage.
