THE MUSEUM THAT GOES TO SEA
Museum of Brisbane’s new exhibition The many lives of Moreton
Bay unearths untold stories of the epic Bay and showcasing newly
The exhibition centres around Bribie, Moreton, North
Stradbroke, Peel and St Helena Islands and includes insights into
the region from traditional owners the Quandamooka people, a
General Manager at Port of Brisbane, a lighthouse keeper family
and a resort owner, to name a few.
Situated 45 kilometres from Brisbane, Moreton Bay was once
a haven for its traditional owners and became a microcosm of
colonialism within just a few years of European settlement in 1824.
In the decades that followed, the region housed a prison,
leper colony, whaling station and benevolent asylum. Today, the
Bay is a hub of tourism and recreation, an important centre of
industry and place of conser vation and environmental research.
The many lives of Moreton Bay showcases the ever-changing
region and its intriguing past through a contemporary mix of
social history, visual arts and multimedia, including an interactive
map, video interviews, archival footage and a gallery of paintings.
The exhibition includes the amazing find of an 1878 painting,
generously donated to Museum of Brisbane by Trisha Anderson.
Created by a convict on St
Helena Island, the painting
is currently changing many
assumptions about the former
prison. Works by acclaimed
artists such as Ian Fairweather
and Ralph Wilson are also

Moreton Bay had undergone
endless transformations it
was important to draw out its
many lives and weave them
together to give a balanced
“ Very few people know the
extent of the rich and diverse
history of the Bay – it is not just
a holiday destination or wilderness
retreat, but a place of great historical
significance to Brisbane,” Mr Denham
“It is an incredibly powerful
exhibition and I hope that it
encourages people to get out to the
Bay and make their own discoveries.”
The many lives of Moreton Bay will
run until 12 October 2014, visit
Museum of Brisbane is open daily
from 10am to 5pm on Level 3 of
