The subdivision is the first land release between Mooloolaba and Caloundra.
The bridge did not exist and we ferried clients by motor boat, landing near La Balsa Park
Our kitchen table was used to roll out the map under a tree. From memory, land sold for around 700 pounds a block.
My dad bought the 160 acres in 1942, after the original owner decided not to continue to pay rates to the Landsborough Shire Council. I think the price paid for the land was 25 pounds in total for all land to high tide mark between McKenzies bridge and La Balsa, across to the surf beach high tide mark.
