              The Society publishes a triannual magazine, the “Bremer Echoes”, and distributes it free of charge to members, supporters and other societies nationally and internationally.

Did You Know?

 

 Cotton was grown by John Panton in the early days of Ipswich, on his 12 acres on the banks of the Bremer River at Woodend. In May 1862, he wrote to the " London Times" as follows:-"Having forwarded from Ipswich, via Sydney, four bales of Queensland cotton, I shipped per “Light of Age” for London, and it being the first cotton exported from Queensland as an article of commerce, I am anxious to have it taken notice of, as I am clearly of opinion that this colony is capable of suppling any quantity of cotton required, with the assistance of labour and capital, which England can supply”
