The 1956 Olympic Torch visit to Eumundi, 1969 Caloundra Nippers, classic beach shots and climbing Mount Tibrogargan are just some of the iconic images making an appearance in the Playtime: celebrating leisure, sport and recreation 2018 cultural heritage calendar.
Copies of the 2018 heritage calendar are available for purchase from council’s library branches and Customer Service Centres for $6.
The 2018 heritage calendar celebrates the relaxed lifestyle that has been enjoyed by Sunshine Coast locals and visitors for decades.
From the 1930s to the 1980s, the calendar takes you on a wonderful journey through the past including the Miss Maroochy boat taking passengers on a cruise along Maroochy River and the 1966 Maroochydore Surf Life Saving boat crew.
Photos are drawn from council’s own Picture Sunshine Coast collection and the five winners of the heritage calendar photo competition:

The annual Sunshine Coast Council Heritage Calendar is produced to celebrate and showcase the unique cultural heritage of the region. The calendar is proudly supported by council's Cultural Heritage Levy.
