The Precinct is an area from Bowen Hills in the west, down to the Brisbane River and also covers the suburbs of Newstead, Breakfast Creek, Albion and the foothills of Hamilton. Meandering through this district is the iconic Breakfast Creek, a creek with two names: ‘Breakfast’ where it joins the Brisbane River and ‘Enoggera’ just a few kilometres upstream.
The Breakfast Creek Heritage Precinct grew out of a determination to identify and record things cultural, social and historical in a district undergoing great change. The creation of this dedicated precinct is a work in progress. It is hoped that other communities would be inspired to act following the efforts of participants in and around the districts surrounding Breakfast Creek to ensure that the ‘Creeks’ innate Sense of Community not be lost but enshrined forever.
At present, the Precinct is made up of 7 contrasting elements from the Past or memorials to the Past, easily assessable by the wider Community –
Booroodabin Bowls Club
Perry Park Recreational Area
Temple of the Holy Triad
These seven elements provide a living History lesson, all the more enjoyable because nobody is made to feel that they are back in the classroom. The strength of the Precinct is to be found in the diversity of the ‘experiences’ on offer.
