Germans in Queensland

150 Years


Edited By Andrew Bonnell and Rebecca Vonhoff

This collection of essays considers the contribution made by German settlers in Queensland over the last century and a half of the state’s history. The volume also analyses the role of other German travellers and visitors who have had an impact on the state. Over this period, Germans have been the most important non-British European settler population in Queensland. The work includes chapters on Germans in politics, science, music and the other arts, as well as German migrants, missionaries, and attitudes to the Australian tropics.

The editors thank the School of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics at the University of Queensland for assistance with the hosting of the workshop at which most of these chapters were originally presented, especially the School administrative staff members Serena Bagley and Lesley Burnett, for their friend- ly help. We thank the Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany in Queensland, Detlef Sulzer, for his support in agreeing to open that workshop, and for his attendance and participation in it. The chapters in this collection have been peer-reviewed, a couple of times over: once by colleagues at the request of the editors, who generously gave of their time and expertise, and once by the anonymous readers of the editorial board of the Germanica Pacifica series. Our sincere thanks to all colleagues for their assistance with these processes. Our thanks also to James Bade, the editorial board of this series, and Peter Lang for enabling us to publish this volume in the Germanica Pacifica series, and for all their advice and assistance. Not least, we wish to thank Margaret Higgs for the preparation of the manuscript for publication to her usual high standards, and for helpfulness above and beyond the call of duty, as usual. Andrew G. Bonnell and Rebecca Vonhoff July 2012
