Landsborough Shire 1912-1987 by Wendy Dixon

Subtitled A brief history of the Shire, its buildings, Councillors, and some of its employees, this is a handy booklet created from reference material that can be accessed at Landsborough Museum.

The booklet includes many photographs (some of them in colour), as well as a brief history of the region from the first elections in 1860, when the region was part of NSW, through various referendums, the establishment of Landsborough shire in 1912, up to 1987 when the Landsborough shire was reborn as Caloundra City.

The booklet also includes a comprehensive index, and is a boon for the general reader and a good primer or springboard for research.
