The Toowong and District Historical Society encompasses the area which comprised the original Shire of Toowong as administered by Town of Toowong, namely the suburbs of Toowong, Milton, Auchenflower and parts of Mt Coot-tha.

If you have anything to share about these areas (e.g. photos, stories, family histories), we would love to hear from you.


The Toowong and District Historical Society Inc. meets monthly on the fourth Friday of the month from January to November.

Monthly meetings feature a guest speaker on topics of historical interest and have included family histories, guest speakers from various historical institutions, book talks by published historians, biographies, the history of other areas, local community organisations, schools and churches, and a wide variety of other topics.

Everyone is welcome to stay and enjoy the morning tea which follows the presentation.

A Members’ Meet and Greet is held three times a year. Members and guests are invited to provide short presentations upon a chosen theme including aspects of their personal family history, local area reminiscences, or other aspects of historical interest.
