⁣Sunday Stories | Buderim Ginger⠀ ⠀ Buderim Ginger in Yandina Queensland has been the home of the world’s finest ginger for the past 70 years. It all started in 1941, when five Queensland farmers banded together in an old blacksmith’s shop to launch a ginger factory — with 25 pounds, two wooden vats and 14 tons of green ginger between them. ⠀ ⠀ The ginger business has since gone on to become one of the world’s largest processors and marketers of sugar-based ginger products, turning this into one of Queensland’s greatest multi-million dollar success stories.⠀ ⠀ The name ‘buderim’ came from a variety of ginger now known as ‘Buderim Gold’, a particular species of ginger that improves harvest yields, while maintaining the citral flavour characteristics of Australian ginger. The unique geographical conditions of the Sunshine Coast hinterland and nearby areas in Queensland provide the perfect location to grow ginger commercially in Australia, due to its combination of rich, volcanic soils, high rainfall and humidity. ⠀ ⠀ Today, the Buderim Ginger factory is a popular tourist attraction, welcoming more than 300,000 visitors annually through guided tours, displays and presentations that invite the public to learn more about Queensland-grown ginger (seen in this photograph). A highlight of the visit is ‘The Taste of Ginger Tour’, which involves taking a ride on a 118-year-old sugar cane train. 🚂💕⠀ ⠀ Image via State Library of Queensland.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #MoBSundayStories #Yandina #QueenslandFood #QueenslandGinger #QueenslandHistory #QueenslandTourism #Buderim

⁣Sunday Stories: | Brisbane trams⠀ ⠀ The Brisbane tramway network operated in the city between 1885 and 1969. Most trams were steered by a two-person crew: a driver (or motorman) and a conductor, who moved through the tram to issue tickets and collect fares. Almost 160 million passengers were carried in a single year, between 1944-1945. ⠀ ⠀ Aside from transporting passengers, the trams also acted as mobile postboxes for many years, carrying mail between the Brisbane General Post Office and suburban post office locations. This 1954 photograph shows the trams and buildings in Adelaide Street decorated to celebrate the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Brisbane city.⠀ ⠀ Discover the history, transformation and regeneration of Brisbane’s substation in the current 'Substation No. 8' exhibition by Impress Printmakers Studio and Gallery. On until 9 Dec 2019 at Museum of Brisbane. 📷: Wikiwand, Trams in Brisbane.⠀ ⠀ #MoBSundayStories #BrisbaneTrams #Flashback #AdelaideStreet #Museum #GettingAround #BrisbaneHistory #ViewsOfBrisbane

⁣ Did you know that the macadamia shells used in Marc Harrison's Husque products are recycled and native to South East Queensland? And that these macadamia shells are combined with polymers to produce interior objects that are innovative and sustainable? For the BRISBANE ART DESIGN (BAD) exhibition, Marc collaborated with fellow designer and lighting designer Jason Bird, to transform the Husque bowls into a dazzling series of lighting products, which the duo call a ‘tabletop up-lighter.' View their work at Museum of Brisbane until 11 August. @husque @luxxbox_design_studio #BAD2019 #BRISBANEARTDESIGN #ArtAndDesign #Tech #Museum #SustainableDesign #HUSQUE #LightingDesign #Macadamia
