The Heritage Centre

The Group has been fundraising very diligently over many years to build a Heritage Centre for the Cooroy - Noosa District. These photographs show a little of the actual work that went on to get to our present facility.


The German Group celebrated the end of the year with a morning tea on the 16th November 2016. This photo was taken by Gebrielle Naulty (who refused to have her photo taken).

2016 Heritage Walk

Each year, the Group conducts a walk of the heritage aspects of Cooroy. This was conducted with the Noosa Long Weekend on Sat. 23rd July 2016. The walk was guided by Phil McGrath and was attended by 25 walkers. It was followed by afternoon tea and a presentation of heritage photos.

Sausage sizzle July 15, 2016

For a long time now, the Group has been fortunate to have a sausage sizzle at Bunnings once a month. This one was a particularly good one where the gross takings were over $1000. All the better for the building fund.

20th Birthday - 2016

The Group enjoyed a special afternoon tea and get together on the 9th July 2016 for our 20th Birthday.

We were all interested to hear the minutes of the first meeting and the planning for the basic requirements of genealogy. All felt that we had come a long way since then.

Queensland Day Award - 2016

Our Group is very lucky to have Julie Kinloch as Secretary - she is an outstanding member. Julie received a Noosa Electorate Queensland Day Award presented by Glen Elmes on June 6th 2016.

Since 1996 she has filled several roles on the committee and her expertise has helped the Group successfully apply for many grants and raise much needed funds.

Julie continues to work tirelessly on the Group's behalf and is recognised for her work towards the building of a Heritage Centre for the preservation of local and family history archives.
