QCC: A 50 year history of Queensland Conservation Council

To commemorate the event, I researched and wrote a (reasonably brief) QCC history. It took a lot of willpower not to let the research take over! Fascinating information is hidden in the hundreds of boxes of documents held at both the State Library and UQ’s Fryer. I found joy, reading of the good fights fought – and sometimes won.

And sadness at campaigns lost.
