Redcoats of Moreton Bay
August 5 - October 9 | 10:00am - 4:00pm| Free
From the first European settlement at Redcliffe in 1824 to the departure of the last Imperial detachment in 1869, British Army ‘Redcoats’ played a key role in Moreton Bay.
The exhibition follows the journey of these British soldiers within the convict establishment that operated in Moreton Bay until the 1840s, and their different experiences after free settlement. Redcoats of Moreton Bay has been curated by historian Jeff Hopkins-Weise in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Museum open: Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00am to 4.00pm
