Nambour

Drawing together history and heritage, local stories and great original music, the Nambour Heritage Soundtrail is a contemporary take on a truly historical town.

From the sugar mill, beauty quests and old Vogue cinema, to the infamy of Bayards Corner and Collins Cafe, the Nambour Heritage Soundtrail is a locative audio walk that comes to us through the voice of locals whose lives and memories are buried beneath the streets.

With ex PowderFinger’s Jon Coghill as our narrator, sound design by award winning producer, Hamish Sewell, and stunning backing tracks by local band, Biscuit, the Nambour Heritage Soundtrail puts the hipster into the heritage of one of the Sunshine Coast’s oldest towns.

Start the tour at the Nambour Library on the corner of Currie St and Bury St.
