Brisbane residents have even more to celebrate in their suburbs, with the Zillmere library and hall now reopened after major upgrades.

It was wonderful to join Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner and our community on Saturday at the official opening of the Zillmere Library.

The refurbishment projects have delivered many exciting improvements, while keeping with the character of the suburb.

The children’s area of the Library has its own gum tree and log seat with hidden secrets to be found in interactive hollows.

There is a beautiful new facade with a bush tucker feature garden to greet you.

The Zillmere Hall started out as a Bible College in the 1960s and the latest refurbishment ensures this beautiful piece of history continues to provide a place where people come together.

Now open to the public, residents can see the extensive refurbishment which has kept the wooden floors, old-style windows and stage but upgraded the kitchen, hall space and electrical and audio-visual equipment for an ideal blend of old and new.
