Discover Queen’s Wharf

In the convict era to 1842 the wharf was pivotal to the operation of the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement. For the remainder of the nineteenth century, Queen’s Wharf was where the Brisbane-Ipswich steamers initially docked, where immigrants from overseas stepped ashore and where official journeys made by the government steamers departed. Business owners, successful and otherwise, built stores and hotels near Queen’s Wharf. A point of entry for immigrants was established.
