Frank O'Toole started this petition to Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk Premier of Queensland

We don't think Queensland needs yet another nod to our colonial history. The new Queen's Wharf development in Brisbane City is a wonderful opportunity to embrace the heritage and culture of the traditional owners of the land on which the development is taking place. There are wonderful examples around Australia where our awareness of and respect for the rich heritage of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are demonstrated - the most obvious of which is Barangaroo in Sydney, alongside Bennelong on which the Opera House sits. A wonderful bringing together of new and existing sites recognising the wonderful and rich heritage of the area in an iconic part of the city of Sydney. Yet the most significant development in Brisbane will be called... Queen's Wharf! Apparently the arbitrary decision of a former Deputy Premier. Such a disappointing tilt to one small part of the area's history. A very small minded and culturally and historically blinded decision. Let's change the name to something respecting the great history of the area prior to colonisation, and something that will help bring us together not only here in Brisbane but across this great nation.
