Two men accused of the gang rape of a woman in Brisbane more than two decades ago and on her 21st birthday, have been granted bail.

A 43-year-old Adelaide man and a 53-year-old Sydney man fronted the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning over the alleged attack on the woman in West End in 1995.

Earlier this year the woman gave the ABC a recording in which a detective told her that evidence from her case had been destroyed.

The prosecutor opposed the men's release, but a judge granted their bail due to there being a "substantial" time since the alleged offences and their minimal criminal histories.

Forty members of the same family were found living in squalor on a NSW property in 2012.

The two men must surrender their passports, have no contact with each other or the alleged victim, and report to their local police stations three times a week.

Both matters were adjourned to next month.

A third man who has also been charged in relation to the incident is expected to appear in court later today.

The story prompted the State Opposition to write to the Crime and Corruption Commission asking for an investigation into the alleged destruction of evidence.
