Tribute to Colin Campbell – On Saturday, Nov 3 at 10.30am, Queensland Premier, Campbell Newman, and Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Graham Quirk, will pay tribute to the late Colin Campbell when the Spectacle Garden in the Roma Street Parklands is renamed Colin Campbell Place. Colin was instrumental in bringing about the establishment of the Parklands.
The Spectacle Garden is the horticultural heart of the Parklands with massed plantings and colourful annuals. Colin’s wife, Bev Campbell, who will be present at the dedication, says she is delighted by the tribute but sad that it is happening after Colin’s death. – Jennifer Stackhouse
