FINALIST: Sunshine Coast Council for From the Mountains to the Sea; Sunshine Coast Stories
Did you know that the name ‘Sunshine Coast’ was launched in December 1958 at the inaugural dinner of the Sunshine Coast Branch of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland?
To commemorate this milestone, Sunshine Coast Council's Heritage Services team partnered with the University of the Sunshine Coast to present From the Mountains to the Sea; Sunshine Coast Stories. This remarkable exhibition showcased items sourced from twenty-eight lenders, including museums, local businesses, tourist operators and private collectors, to celebrate the region’s history and explore the amazing path the region has taken in becoming one of Australia’s highly desired places to live.
