This exciting new work explores the history of the Lebanese community who settled in and around the Queensland city of
Toowoomba. Many Lebanese immigrants had settled in the area from the late 19th century and interviews with their 2nd and 3rd
generation descenants show their deep attachment to the place their parents and grandparents chose to settle. The "Lebanese"
are a significant presence in the area to which they have made a major contribution.
