Today Mowbray Park is an open stretch of greenery studded with trees, home to the East Brisbane Croquet Club and East Brisbane Bowls Club and is a regular stop for the City Cat ferry service. However, during the 1800s the area played an important part in the local Aborigines' lifestyles. Aborigines frequented what is now Mowbray Park, knowing the abundance of riches the area had to offer. They would hunt in the area for wallabies and kangaroos and it was also a popular place to camp. The Aborigines would trade honey collected from nearby eucalyptus trees and fish caught in Norman Creek.
