Heritage wall tells the story of Eudlo township

THE story of Eudlo can now be told and enjoyed by all residents and visitors.

The Eudlo Story Wall was unveiled at a ceremony in the Sunshine Coast hinterland town following more than 12 months of work.

A community project, led by Suncoast Clayworkers, the three-metre long wall features a gallery of clay tiles, many of which were decorated by local residents and Eudlo State School students.

The remaining tiles feature historical pictures of the area printed on specially made ceramic decals, preserving these images for the future.

A memorial plaque from founding residents has also been included.

A passionate supporter of the project, Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay said the wall was a symbolic tribute to both those who had gone before us and those growing up in the area now.

Leading artist and Suncoast Clayworkers president Jackie Gasson was the driving force behind the wall.

"Creation of the Eudlo Story Wall has been a passion of mine for more than three years now," Ms Gasson said.

"I wanted to create something that the Eudlo community could be proud of and visitors to the area would be able to identify with.

"The pictures we have used truly capture the history of Eudlo, and the artworks created by the community show how the town is viewed today."

The story wall is near the community tennis courts in Rosebed St.
