WEB SITE UPGRADE.
The Postal Telecommunications Historical Society of Queensland apologises for the outdated information on this site of late. This is a result of unforeseen circumstances, not allowing us access to the site.
As of July 2018, this site will be undergoing some upgrades and information updates, so keep your eyes peeled for future news.

Our Society is taking the opportunity to Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the opening of the first telegraph line in Queensland.
When this line was opened between Brisbane and Ipswich in 1861 telegrams were exchanged between the Mayors of both Municipalities.
It is our intention to recreate this event and we have the Mayors of both Cities and Telstra supporting the event. We have secured the help of the owners of the Hotel Conrad, beneath which is the site of the original Telegraph Office. They are providing us with a conference room at no charge and offering display space for museum articles.
We are in consultation with all parties and this is shaping up to be a spectacular well publicised event.
Watch this page for further news, or better still, come to the museum any Wednesday and see if there is anything you can do to assist.
This banner was created to advertise the museum while we are making community presentations
to organisations that cannot make it to the museum. So far we have used it for nursing homes,
a public library's heritage group, Salvation Army Women's League and the Scouts JOTA. We have
more visits booked.
