Logan Central - Kingston
Logan Central to Kingston is the third self-guided trail in a series of public art and heritage trails highlighting historic buildings, vibrant street art and public artworks unique to the City of Logan.
Discover more than 20 sites of interest on the Logan Central to Kingston trail via the interactive map provided by Logan City Council, commencing on Railway Parade at Woodridge.
Here you’ll find the Woodridge Station Masters’ Cottage (1886) and Woodridge Progress Association Hall which was a provisional school from 1924 to 1932.
Opposite the hall is the Woodridge Railway Station which celebrated its centenary in 2017. A zen garden mural transforms access way walls into rock towers and raked sand patterns.
Nearby on Station Road, you’ll find more murals, created by street artist Mistery and Street University including ‘Police Beat’ and the ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
The Brachychiton rupestris sculpture by Australian artist Chris Trotter, crafted from discarded scrap material, sits proudly outside the Logan Art Gallery (which showcases local artists and touring exhibitions).
A short stroll from here is Democracy, an artwork created by local artist Barry Fitzpatrick from old electoral ballet boxes, and Desert Growth, a sculpture handcarved from Helidon sandstone and Chillagoe marble by sculptor Craig Medson.
Opposite the Logan Entertainment Centre, an art path - flags of many nations representing multicultural Logan - links Wembley Road to Charles Street.
Driving along Wembley Road you’ll notice colourful street banners designed by Woodridge State High School students with local artist Robyn Pell.
Tucked away in Kingston, Mayes Cottage is well worth a visit. This heritage-listed house, built in 1887, is open to the public for visits and offers a fascinating insight into early pioneer life in Logan.
Other historic buildings in Kingston include the School of Arts (1915) and the Kingston Butter Factory (1907-1983) now home to an Arts and Craft Cooperative and Logan City Historical Museum.
Gould Adams Park, named after Sir Hamilton John Goold-Adams, Governor of Queensland from 1915-1920, is the final destination on this trail. Perched on the banks of Scrubby Creek, this park is the perfect place to stop and have picnic.
