Tree change at the museum

LANDSBOROUGH Museum welcomed Cr Rick Baberowski recently to launch its exhibition titled ‘Tree change – changing landscapes and changing opinions’.

The exhibition was almost two years in the making from the initial inspiration of the bushfires that began at the end of 2019. It went through a complex evolution that incorporated gaining an understanding of trees, land and landscapes and how people, over time, changed their use of and opinions on how the land was, or should be, used and appreciated.

Landsborough Historical Society secretary Rosey Field said ‘Tree change’ explored a number of themes including Indigenous land use, our timber heritage, forestry, conservationists, the protests, green lifestyles, the arts and crafts, and land use planning.

Each of the themes are linked by the trees and the land of the regions known today as the Sunshine Coast and its hinterland area.

The Landsborough Museum is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 9am-2.30pm. It is located at 4 Maleny Street Landsborough. Entry is $10 for adults, $9 for pensioners and seniors, children free and discounts are available for groups of ten or more.
