Time Travel Sunshine Coast: A Heritage Smart Phone Walking Tour App
The Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives is proud to announce the launch of Time Travel Sunshine Coast, a heritage smart phone walking tour that allows users to explore the fascinating histories of the Sunshine Coast on their mobile phones.
Funded by the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation and hosted by the Time Travel BC website, Time Travel Sunshine Coast features a map of the Sunshine Coast with different historic points of interest highlighted.
When the user reaches a stop on the tour, audio/video content and archival photographs from the Museums collection will reveal the historic significance of the location. On your journey, you will encounter tales of intrigue, peruse archival photographs and meet historical characters, all while learning about the fascinating heritage of the coast. There are 16 points of interest in total that can be enjoyed individually or during an all day historical adventure. Sites include Roberts Creek breakwater, the Heritage Playhouse, Gospel Rock and Stonehurst.
Museum staff worked with local actors, musicians and photographers to create content for the app while residents of Christenson Village contributed narration for select sites on Time Travel Sunshine Coast. Throughout the upcoming year, new points of interest will be added to the tour, so there will always be something new to explore.
