South Brisbane and South Bank, West End

Clubhouse to get new lease of life

It’s been a South Brisbane landmark for 100 years and the old Croquet Club at 91 Cordelia Street is about to get a little busier! It’ll soon undergo a huge overhaul, creating a fantastic venue for hire by local community groups and organisations for meetings, functions and events.

The Club refurbishment and management is a project of the West End Community House, a fabulous not-for-profit centre that provides a range of services and activities for local residents.

The South Brisbane Croquet Club was formed in 1902 and the pic below gives you some idea what a day out it must have been!

The original clubhouse burned down in 1959 with the current building completed a year later. On Wednesday April 21st Bees Nees hosted a special preview for members of the local property industry to hear more about the project. The night raised over $2700 toward the refurbishment project. We’re looking forward to seeing this piece of local history take on a new role for the community!
