We shall take a relaxing walk along the Brisbane River in Teneriffe to learn the history of the area and to understand its historical significance as an industrial area and a naval base, before the Urban Renewal programme meant it became one of Brisbane's most liveable suburbs. But don't take my word for it; come and see for yourself.
I have lived in Brisbane for 20 years and was professionally involved in the project to regenerate Teneriffe. I have lived in a woolstore apartment for 15 years and regularly use the RiverWalk. I have a keen interest in the history of Teneriffe and will share with you some of the stories of the area.
Beginning at the Teneriffe City Cat stop, we will walk along RiverWalk as far as Merthyr Road (approximately 1km). Along the way, we will see the sites, places and projects that have shaped and influenced the development of Teneriffe.
