Boolarong has been publishing history books since 1976. We believe it is time to publish a magazine for history lovers. Queensland is now over 150 years old and there is much we don't know about our state and our people. We are asking amateur and professional historians all over the state to share with us their history.
The first edition is now available direct from our web site but soon will be available in newsagencies, libraries, historical societies and museums. A subscription for 4 issues is only $19.80. www.historyqld.com.au
