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.

With Council committing $20 million to the restoration of the Pier, we wanted to capture your stories and photos about this much-love Brisbane icon.

Shorncliffe Pier's history is well documented, but Council knows the Pier is more than just a structure to Brisbane residents and visitors.

More than 50 stories and photos were submitted to the Shorncliffe Pier Community History Project.

All submissions will be on display at the Sandgate and District Historical Society and Museum from mid August 2013. The display will be launched by Lord Mayor Graham Quirk on Sunday 18 August 2013. A commemorative booklet has been developed and a copy will be give to each person who submitted a story or photo. Find more information on the launch event, including how to book to attend.
