Sunshine Coast heritage calendar inspires nostalgia
  • Friday 01 November 2013

The 2014 Picture Sunshine Coast heritage calendar has just been launched by Sunshine Coast Council just in time for the Festive Season.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the striking 2014 Picture Sunshine Coast heritage calendar would brighten up any wall and make a beautiful gift to treasure.

“This year there are large heritage images from across the region featured for each month which take you a step back in time,” she said.

“The images from yesteryear are classic photos of pioneer families, familiar landscapes, people and local heritage places which are sure to put a smile on your face and inspire nostalgia.

“April features a sweeping aerial view of Coolum looking north towards Noosa, with only a dozen or so houses, each with its own outhouse and water tank.

“In Mooloolaba in the 1950s, the river was as popular for swimming as the beach, as the swathe of swimmers show on the month of May.

“The heritage calendar is an excellent way to see how the Coast looked in the “old days”.

“And at $5 each, you can afford to be generous and buy a few as stocking fillers this Festive Season.”

The 2103 Picture Sunshine Coast calendars are available for purchase at council’s library branches across the Coast for just $5 each or online at council’s library eShop for just $6.50 each including postage.
