Cr O'Pray SC50 Celebrations
  • Tuesday 29 August 2017

The Sunshine Coast has officially turned 50 and celebrations for the anniversary of the naming of our home are in full swing!

There’s still plenty of great events for everyone to come and enjoy, including:  

From the Mountains to the Sea - Stories of the Sunshine Coast: until August 19. This collaborative exhibition focuses on broad Sunshine Coast historical themes, drawn from multiple museum collections, extending beyond local history over the last 50 years.


Festival of Community Halls – August to September. Community Halls across the region will offer fairs, morning teas, 1960's style dances, art exhibitions, walks, live entertainment and films – to celebrate the role halls play in our local community.


The News Makers, 50 years of major events on the Sunshine Coast -  September. An exhibition showcase at Landsborough Museum of key Sunshine Coast stories and events.


Council’s website has all the details, check it out!


Three weeks to go!
I'm taking on the Sunshine Coast Marathon on August 20 - that’s right, all 42.2km of it!

Last year my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer so this marathon and everything it stands for holds extra special significance for me as I’m sure it does for so many others.


So far we’ve raised a tick over $6000 and to everyone who has donated to this cause, thankyou from the bottom of my heart. If you’d like to kick in a few bucks check out my page ( and make a donation. It’s super easy and every little bit counts!


Lovin’ the Sunshine Coast!
