A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Watching history disappear.

Seven years on, and the last remnant of the sign is gone.

History will now, doubtless forget that the Moffateers were ever here, unless we can rally someone into action.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, please do click on this link - my photo in the same spot in 2014.

<UPDATE 1 January>
I did take some action - at least I wrote to our local Councillor requesting action, and here was his response:

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Moffateers signage on Moffat Headland,


I am aware of the history of the Moffateers and each year they are celebrated with a gathering at the Pa & Ma Bendall Memorial Surfing contest held over the Easter long weekend in April.


Their history goes right back to the early days of surfing here on the coast and many members are still very active within our community today.


I have forwarded your request onto our heritage department for their consideration and action.

Peter - there is no hyperlink here. I'd like to have a look.
