Cooroy-Noosa Genealogical & Historical Research Group to get a new home

After more than 18 years of fundraising, work is finally set to start on building a new home for Cooroy-Noosa Genealogical & Historical Research Group, Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien said today.

“The Liberal Nationals Government is investing $11,352 in the project as a contribution towards bathrooms at the Cooroy Noosa Heritage Centre,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The new Cooroy-Noosa Heritage Centre will enable research on local family history, so people can find out more about their relatives and their connections to the community. 

“The Centre will also house a resource archive, as well as an extensive library of books, journals and other items of historical interest.

“This is a project that has been long in the making and I thank the Noosa Council for supplying the land and I commend the efforts of local volunteers, who worked so hard for so many years to realise this goal.

“I look forward to the Cooroy-Noosa Heritage Centre becoming a much loved and well used community asset.”
