Ridge to Ridge: Recollections from Woodridge to Park Ridge

Ridge to Ridge, by Mary Howells, is a further addition to the local history publications produced by Logan City Council Libraries and complements the Logan River Tinnie Trail, published in 2003.

The western region of Logan City is one of the fastest growing in Queensland and this publication provides residents with an in-depth analysis its development from first settlement through to 2006.

Tracing the history of Woodridge, Kingston, Marsden, Crestmead, Browns Plains, Greenbank and Park Ridge, Ridge to Ridge is fully indexed, includes a bibliography and 150 historic photographs. Excerpts from oral history interviews with twenty local residents have also been included. Their memories provide a personal perspective on life in the region and add to the extensive primary source research.

The book covers a large geographic area which made it difficult to provide a useful cadastral map of the region. View the detailed historic cadastral map (JPG 3937 KB).
