Old typeface on historical building

Discover building names, “ghost signs” and other text remnants that uncover the hidden history of Brisbane’s heritage buildings.

Come and see the architectural treasure hidden in plain sight. Go on a ‘treasure hunt’ for ghost signs and other labels on buildings along the tour. Ending in an interactive discussion on the social history behind each sign, our passionate guide, Elliott Bledsoe is available to fill in all the gaps for you.

This is “casual history” as Elliott refers to it.

Meet us at the Substation at Woolloongabba.
