Mission Beach Historians host quarterly catch up


The newly formed Mission Beach Historical Society hosted a morning tea at Ninney Rise in Bingil Bay, with President Valerie Boll, and members able to return hospitality to the other museum members from the Cassowary Coast.

 Djiru representative Leonard Andy provided Welcome to Country followed by an introduction to Ninney Rise by Sandal Hayes, who offered a special thank you to Councillor Trudy Schui, whose work and encouragement did much to establish the Mission Beach historians.  

The Historical Societies of the region all agreed on the idea of quarterly visits to each other’s Museums which has been a great success.  Late last year the El Arish Diggers Museum hosted interested members from other museums, followed by the Innisfail Museum in March and Mission Beach was pleased to continue the tradition at the heritage-listed Ninney Rise.The morning tea was followed by lunch at the Bingil Bay Cafe, a very popular choice by the group.
