Community Photo Exhibition Snapping Tully open

The Snapping Tully Community Photo Exhibition

The Snapping Tully photo exhibition had its soft opening on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, and is now open to the public. The exhibition is located at 2-4 Still Street, Tully (the old Di Bella Farm Machinery – amongst others – building). The exhibition is staffed by community volunteers and will be open during the week and most weekends. Please stop in and check the roster on the doors for the current opening hours.


The exhibition is the culmination of a great deal of work, to celebrate the history of our community and what makes Tully, the village in the valley, such a great place today. This project is a part of the Tully100 Centenary Steering Committee’s build up to the Centenary of Tully in 1924.


The exhibition includes photos and stories of pioneers’ families, including the Anderson, Mullins, Jago, Pease, Flegler, Henry, Senko, Musumeci, and Livingstone families, to name but a few. There are also historical photos, stories, memorabilia, and equipment from the early days of Tully.


This project also included capturing Tully now, creating a social snapshot, which will form a record of our community for future generations. The current photos were taken by Diana from Blume Photography and will form part of a community exhibition in Tully and Innisfail and will also be used as a part of the Tully100 celebrations and be stored by Cassowary Coast Libraries for future generations. This project is a celebration of heritage and community identity, creating a sense of place and social cohesion. 


The Snapping Tully social snapshot is funded by the Cassowary Coast Regional Council through the Regional Arts Development Fund, the Queensland Government through the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy, and the Tully Support Centre.
