Shifting Sands: Memories of Moreton Island,
published by Moreton Island Protection Committee, 2005.

This book was conceived by members of the Moreton Island Protection Committee to record the memories of those who share an association with and love of Moreton Island. Between 2000 and 2002 members of MIPC conducted and recorded a number of interviews with such people covering a wide range of topics  including  first memories of Moreton Island, favourite places, memorable characters on the island, and conservation. Historian Margaret Cook was commissioned to produce a manuscript from the interview transcripts. 

As a contribution to oral history, this publication preserves the humour and character of the many and varied contributors through the stories of their work and recreation. Production of the manuscript was funded by a community history grant from the Brisbane City Council. The author, Margaret Cook, would like to acknowledge the assistance of MIPC members, and in particular, Julie Dean, throughout the project. The Cape Information Centre

The staffing of the information centre, which was conducted over the school holidays, was well received by the public, who generally appreciated having Parks volunteers present. Hopefully this can be repeated during busy times.

Thanks to Tangalooma Resort for providing free transfers from the mainland and the rangers for taking most of the volunteers to the flat behind the centre.

MIPC has some information included in the centre which tells of the role we had in blocking the sand-mining and the establishment of the National Park on most of the island. Hopefully we will have members in the accommodation behind the centre to enable us to staff it when possible.
