Queensland is out of my area, and I scored 20% which was pure luck anyway, but who cares? I just can't resist Spletsie's quiz.

Not doubting you Peter, but I have always understood the end was 1968. I even have photos (well, Dad took them, I was 16) dated 1968 that I have always believed to be taken in the last days of trams on the Victoria Bridge.

The book Brisbane Tramways: The Last Decade by Howard Clark and David Keenan, reports that the Brisbane tramway system did indeed close on 13 April 1969.
A few details that the book reveals:
The final tram to operate was four motor car No. 534, which ran from Oriel Park in Ascot to Ipswich Road depot in South Brisbane, crossing the Victoria Bridge along the way. Another four motor car, No. 554, earlier became the last official car to operate when it ran from the Valley to Milton Workshops, where a ceremony was held to mark the end of the Brisbane tramway system.
