Brisbane was chosen as the capital when Queensland was proclaimed a separate colony from New South Wales in 1859.During World War II, Brisbane played a central role in the Allied campaign and served as the South West Pacific headquarters for United States Army General Douglas Mac Arthur.Sir Thomas Brisbane visited the settlement and travelled 28 miles up the Brisbane River in December 1824, bestowing upon Brisbane the distinction of being the only Australian capital city set foot upon by its namesake.German missionaries settled at Zions Hill, Nundah as early as 1837, five years before Brisbane was officially declared a free settlement.

The 1974 Brisbane flood was a major disaster which temporarily crippled the city.However, this settlement was abandoned after a year and the colony was moved to a site on the Brisbane River now known as North Quay, 28 km (17 mi) south, which offered a more reliable water supply.The newly selected Brisbane region, at the time, was plagued by mosquitos.During this era, Brisbane grew and modernised rapidly becoming a destination of interstate migration.Some of Brisbane's popular landmarks were lost, including the Bellevue Hotel in 1979 and Cloudland in 1982, demolished in controversial circumstances by the Deen Brothers demolition crew.
