Overview

The Commissariat Store is one of the two oldest buildings in Brisbane, the other one being the Old Windmill. Steeped in history, the building was built by convicts in the 1820s. As new facets of the building come to light (like the recently excavated brick-made drains in the basement), the building becomes more and more intriguing for the common man. Used as an immigrant house in the past, the Store now functions as the headquarters of the Royal Historical Society of Queensland. A museum and the well-stocked library are also located in the building. The Commissariat Store is being used to host cultural events like book launches and music concerts too.
