Hanging

A total of 93 men and one woman were executed in Brisbane and Queensland during 1830-1913. Our 'Gallows Tales' range covers every story, every crime, and every hanging from the days when the shadow of the gallows fell across the Sunshine State in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Maryborough.
