Nambour Variety Show

“Nambour, the once jewel in the crown of the beautiful Sunshine Coast, the sweet sugar sprinkles on the parfait that was Queensland’s fruit salad bowl of yore. These days a much derided poor cousin, whose fall from grace was as swift and as merciless as the sub tropical sun that bakes the tree fringed valley in which it’s nestled, its former glory gone, like the black snow that once settled on freshly laundered sheets, a blessed gift from the towns beating economic heart, the Sugar Mill.”

Soundtrails in Tenterfield

The Soundtrails phone app serves up location-based tidbits of location history. It was a project of St Joseph’s School to preserve local history in a cyber-modern way back in 2015. Together with input from the Tenterfield Shire Council and the Soundtrails team, the result is an aural walk through history, stopping off at the Tenterfield Saddler, old Tenterfield Star building, the showgrounds, the flood piano and lots of other places in between.  For full story click here.
