Dutch House Community Gardens

On Wednesday 25th of August, 2022, the Dutch House we demolished.

Community Garden

December, 2021. The Community Garden on Troughton Road, Sunnybank sat alongside an old ‘Dutch House’ Queensland Housing Commission home. Both have a story to tell. They adjoin a corner block on Boundary Road and form the frontispiece to a precinct of social housing spanning 60 years, now a private development known as Cornerstone Living. The frontispiece is known as The Corner.
