Cr Baberowski - ‘Far from this Land’ exhibition opens
  • Thursday 30 April 2015
William Murphy was born in Maleny in 1889. He died, aged 27, in France on 29th July, 1916.

As our thoughts turn to commemorating the centenary of the First World War, I can highly recommend a visit to the Landsborough Historical Museum to see the new exhibition space featuring the locally produced ‘Far from this Land’ exhibition. Remembering locals who served in the First World War and acknowledging its impact on the Sunshine Coast, the experiences of war are told through the detailed life experiences of four locals—soldiers Harry, James and William; and staff nurse Connie. Please note a small entry fee is charged and for more details of museum opening times phone 5494 1755 or go to

New pathway for Coochin Twins and Woodgrove residents

Walk, cycle or run—there are many ways for Coochin Twins and Woodgrove estate residents to enjoy the new pathway linking their communities. Council and the Coochin Twins developer have worked well together, with Council providing significant funding for the footbridge across Coochin Creek.  Meandering through some attractive creekside vegetation, the pathway provides a safe and convenient alternative to the busy roads. Expanding the network of local pathways provides more options to be active and connected as a community.

Mooloolaba sports ground amenity upgrade

Improved safety and better access are Council’s priorities for the new amenities at Mooloolah Sports Ground. After much consultation on various options, the sporting precinct users and travellers will appreciate the improved visibility and access afforded by the new roadside location.  Construction should be complete by June.
