MacArthur Museum

The Macarthur Museum is a gallery dedicated to Brisbane's involvement in World War II. Visit the museum to learn about General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in the South West Pacific, who used what is now the MacArthur Museum as his base for steering one of the largest wartime campaigns in history. Discover Brisbane's wartime heritage from 1939 - 1945, a crucial period in Australia's history. Visit the office of General Douglas MacArthur, Commander in Chief of the Allied Forces in the South West Pacific Area. Sit at the table where MacArthur and his staff developed strategies to win the war. Experience life in Brisbane during the dark days of war when people feared that the city might be invaded, public air raid shelters lined the streets and children wore identity discs. Read the Courier Mail and see what Brisbane people woke up to every day. Feel what life was like for Brisbanites when thousands of American and Australian troops inhabited camps around the city, parading through the streets and filling the shops, cafes and pubs. This was the world of our parents and grandparents. See it at the Macarthur Museum Brisbane.

St Johns Cathedral

St John's Cathedral is a heritage site with cultural splendour unrivalled in Brisbane. With gothic-revival architecture that begun 100 years ago (and is still being built), the Cathedral features wood-carvings, stained-glass, 350 million year old limestone and the only fully stone-vaulted ceiling in Australia. The Cathedral's font contains pillars of fossiliferous limestone 350 million years old from Frosterley, United Kingdom, in which skeletons of Coral polyps and bi-valve shells are clearly visible. Every window in the cathedral is of significance: from the large early twentieth century Wheel window to the collection of William Bustard's work, and then the later vibrant windows of David Saunders. The Millennium Window, designed by Scott Maxwell and made by Warwick Blair, was installed in 2001. The Cathedral is set in a precinct of heritage buildings.
