Step back in time at the Sunshine
Coast Heritage Festival
Step back in time during the Sunshine Coast Heritage Festival at the heritage-listed Bankfoot House in the pioneering township of Glass House Mountains on Sunday, April 18.
Bankfoot House on Old Gympie Road is one of the region's oldest buildings and originally offered accommodation, home cooked meals and a well-earned pit stop for goldminers travelling to Gympie.
Being home to three generations of the Grigor family for over 130 years, this Scottish named building is immersed with some fascinating family history. Don't miss a guided tour of Bankfoot House with showings of antiques and art, regional museum displays, memorabilia, furniture restorations and old photographs.
Vintage cars and machinery, pioneer cooking demonstrations and a period costume competition are all part of a great family day out.
The festival celebration with free entry runs from 9am to 4pm with parking available in the grounds of the Australian Teamsters Hall of Fame.
Make some memories of your own and enjoy the best of both worlds with a short break that takes in the Sunshine Coast's beautiful hinterland and pristine beaches.
