Palma Rosa

Our museum of memorabilia about "Andre Stombuco" is most significant because he built Palma Rosa, the headquarters of the English Speaking Union in Queensland. Stombuco built an enormous amount of significant buildings in Australia over 100 years ago. Palma Rosa has a collection of his works. Stombuco built the Queensland Club, Her Majesty's Theatre, All Hallows School Nudgee College, Gregory Terrace and a host of significant buildings which should be preserved for the future.
