A place to contemplate the lake

Forest Lake History - The establishment of the penal colony’s cattle station at Cowper’s (Coopers) Plains from 1824, probably led to the local aborigines either moving away or tolerating the intrusion as it was reported in 1840, that there had been no animals lost to aboriginal destruction since the time of the establishment of grazing for the penal settlement in the areas from Limestone (Ipswich), Redbank and Coopers Plains.

Brisbane City History - 1874, 15th June - First 'permanent' Victoria Bridge opened, with swinging span for tall vessels. Cobb and Co coach was first vehicle to cross.
