This exhibition provides the curtain-raiser for Scenic Rim Regional Council's Story Marker Trails project, showcasing a selection of significant local stories and landmark locations across the Scenic Rim. 

It features remarkable stories of place, with stunning photographs and public artworks, selected from more than 1000 accounts of historical events, places of interest and heritage sites across the region.

Members of local museums, the Queensland Museum, Scenic Rim writers groups, local authors, youth of the region, Indigenous Elders and writings gathered from the War Stories and Our Towns project have contributed to this collection of significant stories that will strengthen community connection to the region's rich past.

Information featured on the Story Markers interpretative signage and public art works will guide residents and visitors to the region on a journey of understanding, connecting them with the culture, heritage and environment of the Scenic Rim and generating increased visitation and interaction within the region.

The Story Markers explore themes of environmental stories; Indigenous stories; settler stories; migrant stories; and contemporary stories of our place.  New technologies, education kits and online trails will enable locals and visitors alike to explore these stories and trails remotely.
