What's New?

2023 Back to Steiglitz Reunion

Sunday 29 October from 10am to 2pm


Over 100 years ago people with a connection to this little town, gathered together on the last Sunday in October to share laughs, food, and stories. And we’re happy to say, that tradition will be continuing this year … at Steiglitz Township, Sunday 29th October, 10 am - 2 pm. 

You’ll find the town’s buildings open, a feast of yummy country home cooking; a fabulous stall of kangaroo hide goods by local indigenous woman, Nikki; enjoy a book launch; get to browse through all the ever-increasing folders of family stories & photos; win a prize in our traditional Youngest & Oldest attendee competition; and have the opportunity to walk down streets once bustling & crowded with over 3000 miners, shopkeepers, and the odd bushranger or two.

This is a fun day to bring the whole family along.  We look forward to seeing you all there. 




AN EXCITING NEW GRANT                                 

We of the Back to Steiglitz Association (BtS) are excited to share some good news with you all – we just got a $3000 grant 

Yes, thanks to huge efforts from our newest member and neighbour, David McKellar, the Australian Government’s Culture, Heritage & Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) Program approved our application.

Meaning, BtS can now look at purchasing, then installing a fabulously exciting digital display in the Steiglitz Courthouse – yippee! 

For many who drive through Steiglitz you may wonder why we’d bother.  After all, blink and you’re already on the other side of this quirky little town.  However, prior to lockdowns Parks Vic figures recorded around 200,000 visitors per annum enjoy all Brisbane Ranges offer, including Steiglitz.

While lockdowns saw those figures plummet, our newfound freedoms mean they’re rapidly rising again.  These visitors have brought a new wave of interest in our little group, and all we achieve.  

So, smile-filled thanks to both David & CHART for making such an exciting development possible for 2022.

Stay tuned!
