City's legacy captured on film
  • Monday 19 May 2008

A pathway stretching the coastline from Bells Creek to Point Cartwright, a multi-million dollar community centre and the redevelopment of the King’s Beach precinct are just some of the many achievements recognised in a new documentary celebrating the legacy of Caloundra City Council.

Sunshine Coast Regional Council Regional Director and former long-serving Caloundra City Council employee Dawn Maddern said ‘Caloundra City: A Legacy’ aims to capture the essence and achievements of the 20 years of the Council prior to its amalgamation earlier this year.

“This documentary celebrates the important legacy that Caloundra City has brought to what is effectively a new era in local government on the Sunshine Coast,” Ms Maddern said.

“Its production has come at a culturally significant time which represented not only the City’s 20th anniversary, but also the final days of the organisation prior to its amalgamation with the former Maroochy and Noosa Shires.”

The film, which is presented through the eyes of community members, along with former Councillors and staff, is available for purchase on DVD for $10 from the Caloundra, Beerwah, Maleny and Kawana branches of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council Libraries.
