Shorncliffe Pier Renewal Project - Community History Project
Brisbane City Council and the Sandgate and District Historical Society are working together to find out what Brisbane residents love about Shorncliffe Pier.
Shorncliffe Pier history
Shorncliffe Pier, previously known as Sandgate Pier, has been part of Sandgate's history for 130 years.
Every person who has visited the Pier has their own unique story, which adds to and enriches the social value of this location.
View photos of Shorncliffe Pier, presented as a timeline to document the history of the structure. You can:
- watch the embedded Flickr slideshow. To read photo captions, view in full screen mode
- view the photos in the 'Shorncliffe Pier' set in Council's Flickr account
Submit your Shorncliffe Pier story
With Council committing $20 million to the restoration of the Pier, we want to capture your stories and photos about this much-loved Brisbane icon. Maybe you said 'I do' on the Pier, or caught your first fish there? Or maybe you have other happy memories of times at the Pier?
Shorncliffe Pier's history is well documented, but Council knows the Pier is more than just a structure to Brisbane residents and visitors. If you live in, or visit Sandgate and Shorncliffe, tell us your story about the Shorncliffe Pier by the end of March 2013.
All photos and stories submitted as part of the Community History Project will be collated and presented as part of a special display at the Sandgate Museum.
You can submit your stories and photos by:
- emailing the project team
- visiting the Sandgate Museum and speaking with a volunteer from the Sandgate and District Historical Society who will record your story:
