The QWHA produces a range of publications related to Miegunyah and other aspects of Queensland’s colonial history.

In 2016, Dr Judith McKay prepared a significance assessment of the QWHA collection. ‘Significance’ refers to the values and meanings that items and collections have for people and communities.
This report provides a comprehensive summary of the items in the QWHA collection and their historical significance.
