The Society has recently produced the booklet Ashgrove 150 Timeline: Enoggera Creek Bikeway, Ashgrove Sportsground.  This publication is an update of the Ashgrove 150 Plaques booklet published in 2013.

The 32 page publication documents the history behind each of the plaques, covering 150 years from 1856 - 2006, laid on the bike path around the Ashgrove Sportsground.

Each page represents one of the plaques in order and contains a related photograph or map and a summary of the significance of the event or year represented on the plaque.
