The Mission Beach Historical Society
is hosting its inaugural exhibition titled "Echo of the Past". This exhibition will showcase historical photographs from Mission Beach from the 1890s through to the 1950s, which will be an amazing comparison to what we know of Mission Beach today.

There will also be a series of historic photographs from the 1918 cyclone, which occurred on 10th March. These will include portraits, landscapes, social events and work life scenes as well as Djiru
cultural objects, a history board designed by Peter Kellett and a series of drawings by Michael Daly about the Hull River Aboriginal Settlement.
The whole exhibition is designed to provide an insight into the diverse early history of Mission Beach
from the first pioneers, the Djiru people
, settlers, farmers and the like, while also preserving the past and reflecting on a future where celebrating our identity, diversity and cultural connections brings us all together as a Nation and Community.
The exhibition opens at the Art, Print, Frame Gallery
, 1/12 Stephens Street Mission Beach from Tuesday 14th March to Friday 14th April 2023 from 9.00am to 3.30pm each Tuesday to Friday.
