This is a discussion and research class for people who have an existing knowledge of local Queensland and Bribie Island history. It is essential for students to have done a previous "introduction to local history" class or attended the various history U3A "Insight" sessions. The weekly sessions involve reading and discussing a wide range of books, papers, documents and audio visual material. Students should have a specific interest and personal knowledge of broad aspects of Australia, Queensland and Bribie Island history. Each week a different aspect of history is explored by field trips to places of interest, visits to museums and historic sites, guest speakers, presentations and a sharing of interests and experiences.
