The 80s are here in Moreton Bay

Pull out your shoulder pads, get a perm and slip into an old denim jacket – because The 80s exhibition opens at Pine Rivers Heritage Museum next week.

Developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council with items sourced from the local community, this exhibition looks at four big themes of the 80s: Politics, events, fashion and culture, and the home.

Lifestyle and Amenity Spokesperson Councillor Denise Sims said the Moreton Bay Region hit some amazing milestones in the 1980s.

“Our population doubled in the 80s reaching more than 200,000 residents by the end of the decade,” she said.

“It was also the decade that saw Queensland’s first Commonwealth Games and of course World Expo 88.

“But the best part of this exhibition is the authenticity of local paraphernalia and the interactive elements that have been incorporated into the show.

“There’s even a video booth for visitors to sit down and contribute their memories of the 80s.

“So I encourage you to head down on May 24 to see this fabulous exhibition, which will no doubt bring back many memories for those of us with fond memories of the fun times and bad fashion.”

The 80s opens on May 24 at Pine Rivers Heritage Museum located at Dayboro Rd, Whiteside.
