Magnificent Makers: Queensland inventors and their curious creations

Explore the stories of a group of canny creators, daring discovers and imaginative inventors that trace a path through Queensland’s history since the late nineteenth century. Together, they not only help tell the story of our state, but showcase the inspiring achievements of incredible men and women who took a chance on their ideas — resourceful, trail-blazing or altruistic — and transformed them into lasting legacies.

Magnificent Makers draws on SLQ’s rich collections to explore the lives of these relatively unknown Queensland innovators through photographs, drawings, blueprints and objects.
