Historical Trails

Following a successful application to the federal government’s Stronger Communities program, the Emu Park Lions Club have worked tirelessly for over six months to give ‘emu’tations of our native species a permanent home on the Capricorn Coast.

Spread across 20 locations, the emu art installations, made of corten steel, were all individually handcrafted by local artist, Brendon Tohill, to guide and educate visitors through various trails promoting the history and culture of the idyllic seaside village.
