Community Entertainment Indigenous & Heritage Lifestyle Sunshine Coast Council


Sunshine Coast Council is on the hunt for old photos of Landsborough to be included in a documentary about the hinterland town’s history.

The documentary will be the next instalment in the ongoing Digital Stories program funded by the Heritage Levy, adding to already produced films such as Maroochy Gunyah, Open Coast, From the Mountains to the Sea, Time & Tide and Memorably Moffat.

This documentary will explore the community stories, history and significant events of Landsborough, capture the historical significance of the township as told by locals and will be used by the Landsborough Place Making project.

Council is specifically looking for photos and memorabilia related to:

  • Landsborough Railway Refreshment Rooms: between early 1900s until 1976.
  • Landsborough Post Office and Telegraph located at the Railway Station.
  • Watson’s flatbed truck that operated around Landsborough and Maleny from the 50s-70s that carted school children to sports at Glass House Mountains.
  • Landsborough school sports days prior to the 1970s that were held at Glass House Mountains.
  • The small council-owned hut that was rented around the 1950s located on the edge of the sports field on Old Gympie Road near the roundabout.

Photos selected for the documentary will also be digitised for the owners, to protect these valuable historical records.

Submissions close at 5pm on April 30, 2018.

Submit your photos and contact details to council’s Cultural Heritage team at the Caloundra office or email

For more information, phone 5420 8600.

When complete, the Landsborough digital story will be screened as part of the Landsborough Place Making project and will also be available to view online via council’s heritage website
