It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October It was the first purpose-built Russian Orthodox church in Australia, and one of the earlier parishes established in the post Russian Diasporayet its construction came comparatively late in Nicola history of Russian emigration to Queensland.
A trickle of Russian emigration to Queensland had been sustained through the 19th century, with numbers increasing substantially from the s. These immigrants were popular with the Queensland government, assimilating rapidly. Most moved into rural occupations, and those who remained in Brisbane gained employment Rockn Roll Gipsy - Saxon - Innocence Is No Excuse in the railways, meatworks and factories.
ByRussians comprised the fourth largest ethnic group in Brisbane, congregating in South Brisbane - Woolloongabba. Queensland's largest intake of Russian immigrants took place in the years Many were radicals and revolutionaries seeking asylum from tsarist political repression in the final chaotic years of the Russian Empire ; considerable numbers were Jews escaping state-inspired pogroms.
They had fled Russia via Siberia and Northern China, most making their way to Harbinin Manchuriathen taking passage from the port of Dalian to Townsville or Brisbane, the first Australian ports of call. Partly because they were scattered throughout the state, and partly because many pres immigrants associated Russian Orthodoxy with the tsarist system they were fleeing, no formal Russian Orthodox parish was established in Queensland during this period.
Queensland's encouragement of Russian immigration ceased in During the First World War —18 Australia was allied with Imperial Russia, and although the Russian Empire collapsed in MarchAustralia, like most Western nations, supported the provisional government, in an attempt to keep Russia engaged in the war. Following the Bolshevik coup of October and Russia's withdrawal from the war, however, capitalist nations reversed their Russian policies, regarding the new Soviet regime with hostility.
From mid toa period of violent civil war in Russiaalmost all Russian immigration to Queensland was prohibited. Along with this influx of White Russian emigres to Brisbane in the early s, the city's first Russian Orthodox parish was established.
From this beginning in a Russian Orthodox parish Nicola created at South Brisbane inand in a cottage at Vulture Street, Woolloongabba site of the present cathedral was purchased by the parish and converted into a church. Most of the White Russian emigres who arrived in Brisbane in London* s had moved immediately to rural areas in search of work.
By the mids, despite the depression, many had made sufficient money to enable them to Kto Boh Veliy - Prokimen At Pentecost - The Choir Of The Russian Orthodox Cathedral to Brisbane, where they were less isolated, and where D-Dur K. 214 - Domenico Scarlatti, Ralph Kirkpatrick - Sonate Per Clavicembalo culture was sustained by the local emigre community.
The construction of Nicola purpose-designed Russian Orthodox church became a priority for Brisbane's Russian community. With the appointment in of Father Valentine Antonieff to the parish of St Nicholas, fund raising for a new church commenced. It was to be erected on the site of the existing church, and would be a memorial to the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II. Engineer and local parishioner Gregory Mechonoshin drew up a basic plan for the new church.
This was approved by the parish council, who then commissioned architects Cavanagh and Cavanaghof Brisbane and Perthto prepare formal plans. Tenders were called in mid, and the contract was let to builder B Robinson. Assistance in the technical construction of the cupola was given by another parishioner and engineer, Mr Golovznin.

Interior fittings included a shrine to Tsar Nicholas II. The Maltese Cross on the front tower of the building was incorporated not for liturgical reasons, but because it formed part of the Queensland state emblem. The front fence, extant by Maywas constructed a few years after the new church was erected, replacing an earlier picket fence.
The work was financed by Alexander Bardin, who had a cattle property near Romaas a memorial to his wife and parents. It was constructed by local parishioner Michael Zakrjevsky. After immigration Herbstreich - Vinterriket - Horizontmelancholie (Hybrid), the bishop finally arrived in Brisbane in lateand consecrated St Nicholas Church at Woolloongabba as Australia's first Russian Orthodox Cathedral, on 5 November The seat of Russian Orthodoxy in Australia remained in Brisbane only a short time.
