The Back Yard

Under the shade of the trees are some old fences and has an eerie feel about it.

The railway made a huge difference to the development prospects in the area. The late 1880's were a time of great prosperity. Not only did the coming of the railway mean that people could more easily transport their foods to markets in Brisbane, but building materials could also be accessed.

The arrival of the railway was probably a factor in John Mayes' decision to build the house we now know as Mayes Cottage, which was completed in January 1887.
