About the project


Who are our people?

Where are our secret places?

What are our stories?

Why do we love living bayside?

Bayside Stories is a project to discover and record interesting stories about living in Wynnum, Manly and Lota. We hope to bring our community together to share and enjoy these stories while also adding to the history archive for the future. Join us as we discover what it is that makes living bayside so special.
