Sunshine Coast Regional Council contracted ToadShow to scope, design, write, illustrate and fit out the Visitor and Interpretive Centre at Glass House Mountains Township. They needed an interpretive centre that captured the sense of place and told stories to inspire visitors. There was a short six-month timeframe from start to installation.
ToadShow prepared all the content, managed production and completed installation. The installation included four multimedia kiosks, a children’s interactive, 13 interpretive panels, six outdoor panels, three graphic panels, interior and external signage and even the furniture.
A large ToadShow-designed and illustrated map, and a dual-screen display with panoramic scenes from atop the Glass House Mountains added to the sense of place. The Explore Kiosk suggests destinations and activities for visitors on short or long stays in the region.
New and historical photographs show visitors the geology, plants, animals, history, tourist attractions and the mountains themselves.
ToadShows’ research shed new light on the history of the Glass House Mountains including the origin of the name. The Glass House Mountains Visitor and Interpretive Centre opened in March 2010.
