It played an important role in the stipulation of freshwater to Brisbane from 1871 to 1962. These workshops are known to be inspirational, inclusive, high energy and exciting. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner; you may leave with dozens of images created by you.

Steam Train Sunday

This family event on the 13th promises to be an adventurous one, as you take a 1-hour stream train ride on Sunday. You are certainly going to enjoy it, whether you have love for trains or Thomas the Tank engine. The vintage carriages fuelled by coal will take you through Brisbane River and some of the stations. The departure and returning point of the journey is the Roma Street Station. It’s a family fun day out, with an opportunity to check out The Workshops Rail Museum. If you are an annual pass member, you get discounted tickets and unlimited entry for a year.

The renowned authors Lawrence Krauss and Richard Dawkins will be touring Australia once again, with shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. On the 16th of May, 2018, they will be sharing the same stage, given their reputation as an international star of science critical thinking and communication. A joint expert talk will be followed by a Q&A session of 30 minutes, and a chance to meet them (only for special ticket holders). Both the scientists, Krauss and Dawkins are unreformed about their thoughts on irrationality, religion and politics in any field.
