Pine Rivers - Then and Now

Explore the rich history of the Pine Rivers District with this series of photographs, providing a portal into how life was for the region’s early settlers. The roads were little more than dirt tracks with bullocks and carts rather that today’s trucks and cars.

Where once there were only open plains filled with trees and vegetation, now there are buildings and shops supporting the suburban communities that have emerged.  While these photos reflect the changes to these places overtime, to the land’s use by people, they also detail how these landscapes have shaped, and remained at the heart, of the communities that call them home.
