Queensland police hope a distinctive belt buckle will lead them to a man who savagely bashed a Polish au pair while she was out walking in Brisbane.

The 24-year-old woman suffered serious facial and head injuries in the attack at Petrie about 9pm on Friday, November 25.

Police made a fresh appeal for public information on Tuesday and have released images they believe could aid their investigation, including one of a black and silver belt buckle.

The distinctive buckle bears a cross with the Star of David in the middle.

Police are pleading for whoever owns the belt or anyone with information about the belt to contact them.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Richard Hoffman said police would set-up a mobile station at the scene of the attack from 4pm on Tuesday.

The station will include a mannequin dressed in similar clothing to the victim in the hope it sparks information from the public.

The young woman has since returned to Poland, where she continues to recover from her injuries.

Det Act Snr Sgt Hoffman said it was a "terrible" crime and hoped the offender would show some remorse and turn themselves in.
