The region left it’s marked as one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Brisbane with many structures built since the early nineteenth century. Major landmarks include the Old Windmill in Wickham Park built in 1824 and the Spring Hills Baths operated by the Brisbane City council considered as the oldest public baths in Queensland.
Much has seen over time, the older residential and commercial structures have been demolished to be replaced by modern office blocks and apartment buildings. Major educational establishments and schools were put up including the Brisbane Grammar School, St. James College, Brisbane St. Joseph College and Brisbane Central School attracting residents to live in the suburb. With the increase in population, constructions eventually rise causing unnecessary damage in pipes and water lines. If a pipe is broken, the water cannot flow freely and it may collapse, causing the drain to be block. Tree roots enter these damaged pipes which would further cause choke in the flow of essential water from one place to its destination. Grease and other foreign contaminants from residential and business establishments further aggravate the situation by clogging our drains and solidify along the pipelines.
