From camping, sailing, and beach activities, to just finding cool escapes, these are just some of the images celebrated in the 2024 Cultural Heritage Calendar, Happy Snaps…Holiday times on the Sunshine Coast. It’s jam-packed with a stunning collection of photos that have been drawn from the private collections of seven local residents who were winners of the heritage calendar photo competition and council’s own Picture Sunshine Coast collection.
Congratulations to the competition winners – Yvonne James, Eumundi Museum, Bruce Tallon, Petro Geyl, Steve Newton, Anne Wakely and Courtney Michael.
The annual Sunshine Coast Council Heritage Calendar is produced to celebrate and showcase the important cultural heritage of our region and is proudly supported by our community’s Arts and Heritage Levy.
