St Helena Island National Park, QLD, Australia 3D Model
The former penal settlement of St Helena, located in the homonymous island, lies within the waters of Moreton Bay, in South East Queensland, Australia. Originally a quarantine station designed by notable architect Charles Tiffin in 1865, it was converted into a prison in 1867, becoming Queensland’s highest security penitentiary. It was dismantled in 1933; today, the remaining buildings are one of the few examples of colonial-era architecture in the region and the island has now been converted in a national park. This 3D model shows the existing remains of the penal settlement. It was developed by UQ Architecture student Jonus Darr in 2017.
