The Story Behind the Man Known as Wolfgang (Mozart)
Logan City is situated between the City of Brisbane and the City of Gold Coast, Queensland. It also borders the Scenic Rim Region, the City of Ipswich and Redland City. Named after Patrick Logan, who was the commandant of the Moreton Bay Penal Settlement. He had a distinguished military career, however, he died at the hands of the Aborigines who objected to him entering their land.
The Logan Entertainment Centre was officially opened in July 2002 to provide the city with a venue to hold world-class performances, artists and musicals. As well, the LEC holds local and state-wide awards ceremonies, exhibitions and events. Facilities for these events include a full bar, kiosk, audio-visual and lighting equipment, experienced events team and production specialists, off-street parking and a computerised on-site ticketing system.
