Queensland Heritage Register - Ipswich First Website : Architect George Brockwell Gill designed the flour mill in 1900 and Worley & Whitehead started building it in 1901. It is part of the historic shopping precinct known as “Top of Town” and makes an important contribution to the streetscape. The flour mill is associated with politician Francis Kates and his son Francis Henry Kates, and with the development of the family’s milling enterprises. In May 1910, Cribb and Foote bought the property for less than the mill’s construction cost, using it to accommodate several departments while their new building was being erected. It seems to have then continued in use as the firm’s Stove Department. An awning with decorative timber brackets was erected over the footpath in front of the single story section and a lift was built. In 1926, the property was bought by the Johnson family and used as a car showroom. In September 1935, radio station 4IP was established in the top floor, entry being via an external staircase on the western side. An awning was erected across the front of the building, incorporating the earlier Cribb and Foote section of awning; the date is not certain but was probably in the late 1920s as work appears to be in progress in a 1927 photograph. Later uses of the mill included housing Paddy’s Market and storing furniture. In the mid-1980s, the upper floor was used for a martial arts school and the lower floors became a bridal shop and fabric shop. Taken from the Ipswich First Website and The Heritage Register: In 1985, the property was purchased by Beverley de Witt and it was converted into a restaurant, function room and shopping arcade in 1993. An additional two-story wing was built at the rear of the mill section to house the function room.

One of Brisbane’s most iconic gastro pubs, The Plough Inn was established in 1864 and has functioned under the same name since. The South Brisbane and more importantly, Stanley Street area was booming in the 1880’s with the proximity to the South Brisbane Wharves ensuring the ongoing popularity. Even to this day, the location of the Plough and proximity to public transport, entertainment precincts and the vibrant Parklands make for one of the more convenient beers you can have in Brisbane. Publican Daniel Costigan added to the building in 1885 resulting in a total of 14 guest rooms, multiple dining areas, a detached single-storey kitchen and an underground cellar. Multiple other renovations have been done since then, with the most notable additions being the renovations in 1987 before World Expo in ‘88 which put South Bank on the world map and the more recent additions to the deck overlooking the wonderful Parklands. The building was placed on the world heritage listing in October 1992 after it was agreed upon that the front of the building is a rare surviving memory of the city’s main commercial thoroughfare from the 19th century. Nowadays, there’s no guest accommodation, instead the Plough has been transformed into one of Brisbane’s best modern-day pubs. Whether it’s a meal and/or a drink up on our fantastic new deck space overlooking the picturesque parklands, a function in one of our many fully customisable function spaces (including the well-known Arbour Bar), utilising one of our 4 fully functional bars with over 50 beer taps or just settling in to Brisbane’s best beer garden to catch the live sport on the big screen or our live music which plays 7 days a week – there’s something at the Plough for everyone. This information is taken form the plough Inn page itself.

There has been a Royal Mail Hotel at Goodna since the 1860s. This quiet terrace beside the river was once part of the main road from Ipswich to Brisbane. The avenue of trees was planted during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Each October, the gold silky oaks and purple jacarandas come into bloom at the same time - a sight that is well worth a detour from the main road to have a drink or dinner at the Royal Mail Hotel. The ONLY venue in Australia to be officially awarded the 'International Keeping the Blues Alive Award' from The Blues Foundation in Memphis TN USA!

Although there is no single definition of superstition, it generally means a belief in supernatural forces—such as fate—the desire to influence unpredictable factors and a need to resolve uncertainty. In this way then, individual beliefs and experiences drive superstitions, which explains why they are generally irrational and often defy current scientific wisdom.
