Northcliffe has its share of tall tales and timber.
Seeking Stories Never Before Published
for the Centenary Book
To celebrate Northcliffe's centenary in 2024, the Northcliffe Pioneer Museum is preparing a large format coffee
table book with anecdotes and short stories that depict the changing faces of Northcliffe
and its people across the past 10 decades. The book will be available for purchase, in hard or
soft covers, early in 2024.
Whether you have been here all your life or only just
arrived, whether you are ninety or nine anyone with memories
and experiences of living in
Northcliffe is encouraged to contribute. Although the book is
to celebrate the years since Europeans settled in Northcliffe
we do acknowledge the original Murrum people who lived here
and pay our respects to their elders past and present.
You can tell your
tales or anecdotes which showcase resilience, humour and
achievements, even disasters or failures. You need only write
between 300 and 500 words. Up to 1500 words are welcome if you
prefer and recount events not previously published (in the
Karri Pigeon or elsewhere) or given to the Museum more that
two years ago.
Have you a good yarn to tell? Jot it down and send it to Carole or Alison

If you would rather talk about your tale there is someone
to help wriite it down!
