Expo 88 – Australia Signs Coming to the Village
On Tuesday, 13 March 2018 we received news that the Australia signs, which were featured at Expo 88 and have been at Arethusa College Deception Bay for many years, are coming to the Caboolture Historical Village.
Remove, transport, refurbish and display is all we have to do. A fantastic win for our Village.
The removal and cartage of the signs to the Village as well as the restoration will be posted here and on the Village’s Facebook page.
The Expo 88 Australia signs have generated a lot of interest – here are some of the links to news articles etc:
