Like many regions in Queensland, the City of Logan has a fascinating history, from the original Indigenous inhabitants and the arrival of Europeans, to colonial life and later farming communities.
We have charming historical attractions where you can learn about our past and step back in time to experience what life was like long before iPads and keyless entry cars.
The City of Logan also has self-guided heritage trails you can follow. The Public Art and Heritage Trail: Logan Village to Beenleigh (PDF 5552 KB) guides you from one Logan’s heritage ‘hot spots’ to another, via the picturesque Tygum Lagoon at Watervale. The Logan River Tinnie Trail is a great way to explore history on the water, as some of the most significant sites and landmarks are along the Logan River – the lifeblood of early communities.
A walk through an old cemetery is often a startling reminder of the hardships faced by early settler communities. You’ll find fascinating historic cemeteries at Tygum, Kingston, Carbrook, Logan Reserve, Slacks Creek, Bethania, and Mundoolun.
