Seventeen Seventy Foreshore Redevelopment
Council In mid-2006, the Queensland Government’s Department of Local Government, Planning, Sport and Recreation launched a Q150 Legacy Infrastructure Grant Program to celebrate the 150 year anniversary of Queensland’s separation from New South Wales as a colony. The anniversary vision was “Reflect on our past, imagine our future”. The objective of the program was to create lasting tributes that marked the anniversary and reflected the vision of the celebrations.
The aim of the project was to upgrade the existing coastal foreshore by providing a modern open space which attracts visitors to the area, as well as giving existing residents an enhanced area to enjoy the vistas and activities available along the picturesque stretch of Seventeen Seventy coastline.
The official unveiling coincided with the Captain Cook 1770 Festival, an annual event which brings the small coastal community together to celebrate.
