I sometimes rue the fact that there is very little of significance for us to do/see in Brisbane when compared with major global cities, but the Commissariat Store is well worth a visit. For a relatively small building, there is a great depth of history preserved here.
The depth of knowledge of our tour guide was exceptional and he took the time to answer all the questions of my 10 year old whilst still engaging my 16 year old son, myself (45) and my mum (78).
Do NOT miss out on visiting this historical site. We had envisaged spending an hour there but, as all good places do, it enthralled us for much longer.
It was a great walk from QUTs new Cube (ultra modern) to the Commissariat Store (heritage) and then onto the revamped City Hall (the only City Hall in Australia!).
Now if only we can preserve the Old Museum to the same level as the Commissariat Store, I will be a much happier Brisbanite!
