What is Living History? 

Living History is an attempt to re-enact life in another time. From the Dark Ages to Renaissance Italy, Colonial Australia, and beyond, our re-enactors live out their chosen era through authentic clothing, hairstyles, tentage, furniture, food, crafts, weaponry, armour, and myriad other details.

The re-enactors you see at History Alive are members of the Queensland Living History Federation (QLHF), and History Alive is the premier re-enactment event for this fantastic organisation. 

If you are interested in living history or becoming a re-enactor, be sure to visit the Queensland Living History Federation website. You’ll learn all about our amazing re-enactors and how you can get involved in living history in Australia.
