GBG Australia have recently carried out a geophysical investigation on the grounds of Queensland’s oldest surviving building: Bankfoot House, Glass House Mountains. The investigation utilised Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and a Frequency-domain Electromagnetic Profiler (EM Profiler). A number of areas of interest were identified, including the stone foundations of the old post office.
