Renowned investigative authors and journalists Madonna King and David Fagan join forces to tell the story of our city. With colourful stories, pictures and testaments from an exciting kaleidoscope of characters, ‘Greater Springfield – Australia’s Newest City’ is a must read for anyone with a sense for adventure, an appreciation for entrepreneurship or an interest in just what it takes to take to build a world-award winning city. Maha Sinnathamby and his business partner Bob Sharpless had a dream when they negotiated the purchase of a forest tract somewhere between Brisbane and Ipswich some twenty-five years ago. They wanted to build a city, and build they did. “Greater Springfield: Australia’s Newest City” tells the story of how that dream became a reality, the people who worked with them, the community that was created and individual stories of some of those who live in the city. 191 pages.
