Heritage on show in Eumundi

Heritage Showcase

Enjoy a fun day out with the family while learning more about the Sunshine Coast’s rich history at the Heritage Showcase event in Eumundi on Sunday, April 22.

More than 15 local museums and heritage organisations will be putting on a show at the School of Arts Hall between 10am-3pm, offering everything from parades showcasing fashion through the eras to demonstrations and workshops in lost arts such as butter making and wood carving, live entertainment and more. 

Divisional Councillor Greg Rogerson said the Heritage Showcase provided the rare opportunity to immerse ourselves in the region’s rich heritage all in the one location. 

“I’d encourage everyone to take a step back in time and spend a day out at Eumundi meeting passionate experts from the region’s museums and heritage organisations,” Cr Rogerson said. 

“You can try your hand at the almost lost art of wood turning while the kids enjoy a variety of craft activities, then grab a bite to eat at the Retro Cafe. 

“There’s also the chance to take a seat in Queensland Air Museum’s jet fighter cockpit pod and imagine what it would be like to be in control of the aircraft, the instrumentation and the ejector seats.

“Then, once you’ve landed, take the time to explore the township of Eumundi with a guided walk or find out more about our local artists, authors and architects at the film screenings of From The Mountains To The Sea.”

The Heritage Showcase is funded by council’s Cultural Heritage Levy which was introduced in 2009 to ensure the region’s stories, traditions and places continue to be protected and experienced by future generations.
