Upcoming re-enactment events featuring Queensland Living History Federation members

 

History is a topic many can talk about – whether they know someone who served in a war or they can trace their ancestry back hundred of years. Events with a historical theme or significance can be found all over the world, including right here in Australia.

Many Queensland Living History Federation members attend events throughout Queensland and Australia to share their passion for history with fellow re-enactors and any one else they can find.

You can find events attended by members of the Federation on this calendar. Click on an event for further details.
