Birdcage of the Bay is a recreation of the St Helena prison stockade, using plans from the collection of the Queensland State Archives and other historical sources to show the extent of the prison establishment and its myriad of prisoner stories.
This is an accurate virtual reality rendering of the stockade as it stood 100 years ago.
The Spring Hill Windmill has a commanding view and has seen Brisbane grow from a fledgling township to the thriving city it is today. The stories it has been witness to are the stories of Brisbane.
These videos are part of the exhibition 'Windmill of your mind: Stories inspired by Queensland’s oldest building' at Queensland State Archives, located at 435 Compton Road Runcorn. Opening hours are 9.00am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday, as well as the second Saturday of every month. Entry is free of charge and the exhibition runs until December 2017.
