Character Housing

One of the features of this area, as I have said, is the character housing. Queensland was known for it's timber homes "on stilts" - the houses were elevated from the ground to enable air to circulate under the house to keep it cooler, and of course with the very high rainfall here, it was a way of protecting houses from flooding.

These days the old houses are prized - though many have been modernised inside.

House on Wynnum Waterfront

This one is on the waterfront at Wynnum. Imagine living in this wonderful old home right on the waterfront.
