Willkommen to Brisbane!  Excursion to "German Station"

It is that time of year - Brisbane German Week has officially started!

We have teamed up with the Brisbane Greeters this year and invite you to join us at this excursion to what was once known as “German Station”. The Greeters have developed this "Brisbane’s German Story" Greeter Trail experience around Nundah, the place where some of Brisbane’s very first German families and settlers lived – Brisbane’s German Story begins here!

Queensland is Australia's first German settlement state. 177 years ago the first German settlers set foot on Australian land. Discover the fascinating stories of Brisbane’s German roots while getting under the city’s skin and be truly immersed like a local.

Highlights:

  • the First Free Settlers Monument, German Australian Friendship Plaque and heritage trail that drops crumbs about curious characters and little-known facts;
  • a stroll through the village of Nundah with various points of interest explained, including a WWII bomb shelter and the War Memorial featuring a World War I German Krupp field gun;
  • a visit to the German Bakery where you may choose to indulge in a delicious German Brezel or Strudel;
  • St Paul’s Lutheran Church – learn about why there are two differing styles of pews;
  • spectacular station and street art around Nundah commemorating the Lutheran Missionaries and their relationship with the local Aborigines;
  • a walk to and across what was once “German Station”;
  • a reflective and fascinating experience at the Nundah Cemetery that reveals so much about some of Brisbane and Queensland’s earliest settlers.

The greet will start at 10.30am and will run up to four hours – excluding travel time to and from Nundah – the meeting place is on Nundah Railway Station.
