The History of Wynnum and Manly

Wynnum Manly Historical Society Inc.

It is believed that the first white people to visit the Wynnum Manly area were 3 cedar cutters who were blown off course on a voyage from Sydney in 1823.

The area was very popular with a number of aboriginal tribes that regularly visited or lived in the area for hundreds of years before the Europeans visited the area.

There are details of a rich history in the Wynnum Library History Room and in the local Wynnum Manly Historical Society Research rooms adjacent to the main entrance to the Wynnum Library. Members of the society are on hand to help with any research on Monday to Friday mornings from 10am to 12 noon.
