Heritage Calendar 2023 Competition

The annual Sunshine Coast Council Heritage Calendar celebrates and showcases the unique cultural heritage of our region. 

The Sunshine Coast 2023 Heritage Calendar Competition is on now. Share your favourite photos of travelling around the coast for a chance to be included in this year’s Calendar, ‘On the Move…How we travelled the Sunshine Coast’. Car, bike, boat, skates, train, tram or horse, we want them all. The winning images will be included in the Calendar and winners receive a canvas print of their image, plus calendars to share.

Competition closes Monday August 15.

The calendar brings together community memories and images taken on the Sunshine Coast and creates a special keepsake for sharing with friends and family.
