Kangaroo Point is one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs. In addition to being a scenic location for family gatherings, CT White and James Warner Parks at Kangaroo Point were once the home and workplace of some of Queensland’s pioneering scientists and researchers.
In recognition of their contribution, Brisbane City Council has:
created a series of interpretive and botanical signs in the parks about the pioneers and their work – Cyril Tenison White, Frederick Manson Bailey, Harry Oakman, James Warner, Silvester Diggles, and Oscar Werner Tiegs
commissioned an artwork by artist, Mel Robson.
The trail commemorates Council’s former Superintendent of Parks, Harry Oakman, by highlighting the remnants of his distinctive subtropical plants with botanical signage.
Pack a picnic and take a walk back in time in Kangaroo Point. Once you’ve walked the Natural History Trail, be sure to check out the Art and The River Public Art Trail, or take a ferry ride down the Brisbane River.
