Echo of the Past

Echo of the Past – Historical photographs from Mission Beach 1890s-1950s

5 July 2024 – 2 November 2024

A collaboration between Mission Beach Historical Society and Cairns Historical Society & Museum. Coinciding with the anniversary of the 1918 cyclone, a series of historic photographs (portraits, landscapes, social events and work life scenes), a slide show of photos, videos, Djiru cultural objects, history boards and series of drawings about the Hull River Aboriginal Settlement together with the artefacts from the Cairns Historical Society & Museum collections provide an insight in the diverse early history of Mission Beach. The display offers a snapshot of an intriguing, beautiful, dynamic frontier region and its people, making the history of Far North Queensland accessible for current and future generations. Through the themes of community, sea and land, the photographs and Djiru cultural objects have been used as points of focus to examine all aspects of Mission Beach history.
