In 2010 ToadShow worked with the Moreton Bay Regional Council to prepare three exhibitions for the opening of the Bribie Island Seaside Museum. The project was produced in collaboration with Maria Cleary Design and Planet Productions.

The exhibitions were on three very different, but very uniquely-Bribie topics.

One exhibit was about Matthew Flinders' first landing on Bribie Island which occurred very close to the site of the Museum. The local suburb was named after Flinders' Indigenous guide Bongaree.

Another exhibit was about fish and fishing. Accompanying this display was a superb collection of fish and marine specimens.

The third exhibit looked at the life of artist Ian Fairweather who lived as a recluse on Bribie.

ToadShow completed extensive original research and content creation for the three exhibitions. The information was presented in beautiful interpretive panels and innovative displays.

The exhibitions debunked many popular myths about Bribie Island including the origin of its name and the location of the original "Skirmish Point".
