Jeff Hopkins-Weise
I am a professional historian and museum officer, who has a strong interest and background in Queensland and Australian, as well as New Zealand and Pacific history. I have a particular expertise and interest in the role and experience of the British Army and the early colonial military forces in Queensland, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Australian involvement in the New Zealand (or Maori) wars of the 1840s and 1860s.

I have published extensively on many of these historical themes, as well as other aspects of Queensland or Australian history, such as the Pacific Islander labour trade, Queensland maritime history, and the military horse trade to New Zealand. My most recent publications include a co-authored book for the Queensland Museum (2008 & 2010) on one of the museum’s most significant collection item, the WW1 German A7V tank Mephisto; and Blood Brothers: The Anzac Genesis, a history of Australia’s role in the New Zealand wars which I produced for Penguin NZ (February 2009).

I also have considerable background and experience in cultural heritage research and management while engaged in various capacities for the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and the Environmental Protection Agency, and most recently with curatorial and collection management roles with the Queensland Museum (Southbank) and The Workshops Rail Museum (Ipswich), the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum (Moreton Bay Regional Council), the Victoria Barracks Museum (Petrie Terrace, Brisbane), as well as the Main Roads Heritage Centre in Toowoomba. I am currently an Honorary Research Fellow (Curator) for The Workshops Rail Museum, part of the Queensland Museum network.
