This year’s Moreton Bay History Seminar, organised by Moreton Bay Regional Council, explores the discovery, preservation and importance of history in the Moreton Bay region. The all-day event at Morayfield on Thursday 19 May includes presentations by respected guest speakers and stalls from the region’s historical groups and societies.

Speakers include Dr Ray Kerkhove, Dr Margaret Kowald, Greg Hallam and Jan Richardson, with a special performance by Leena Salim.

Jan Richardson, PhD candidate and Research Assistant in the Harry Gentle Resource Centre, will focus on convicts and ex-convicts who escaped to, lived in, and travelled through the Moreton Bay region, from the hills and valleys of the Pine Rivers district to the shores of Moreton Bay and Bribie Island.
