130 years after the first worship services in the original St Thomas' Church at Curlew Street, special Consecration Anniversary service and celebrations were held.

Sites of Historic Interest to St Thomas'

Queensland History
Founded in 1913 as a cultural organisation which exists for the benefit of its members and the community, the objects of the Society are to promote interest in and advance the study of Queensland history; broaden opportunities for the practice and writing of history; preserve documents and manuscripts relating to Queensland history; and preserve and display artefacts illustrating Queensland colonial history.

The Brisbane General Cemetery at Toowong, established in 1866 and formally opened in 1875, is Queensland's largest cemetery. It is important in demonstrating the evolution of Queensland history, as it provides evidence, through the division of its portions and the headstones and memorials they contain, of the history and the demography of Brisbane and the diversity of its cultural, religious and ethnic groups and districts.

Brisbane City Council maintains a Heritage Register here.

The Brisbane History Group
was formed in February 1981 to encourage and promote the study of Brisbane's history.
