Turrbu/Yugarabul people, name der poss: ‘Warra – a stretch or expanse of water’
Sandgate originated as a sea-side resort town for early European Brisbane residents, with boating, golf and swimming combining with the existing heritage listed building to create ideas of a Gatsby-ish playground in the romantic recollections of locals. Theatre has played a part (ho ho! appropriate use of cliché!) in Sandgate, with Brisbane’s longest running community theatre festival and a theatre group playing continuously in the hall for over 50 years. Activities have been given an update for the modern world, of course – kite and wind-surfers and stand-up paddle-boarders all enjoy the water, too. Enduring concert series Music by the Sea regularly brings fantastic quality artists into the heart of this tight knit seaside community.
