Nambour's retro vintage scene comes to life through new tour

FOR residents and visitors around Nambour, the opportunity to take a trip back in time is easier than one may think.

The streets are teeming with collectable stores, op shops, and retro fashion, and all are coming together through the new Vintage and Retro Trail.

The trail has been designed to guide visitors along a path of retail discovery alongside unique cafes and quirky bars, including a craft brewery.

Hayley Saunders, Vice President of the Nambour Alliance Chamber of Commerce, said the Alliance was always looking for reasons to bring people from around the Coast to Nambour.

"The whole vintage theme of Nambour has just been growing, so we see this as a natural evolution with all the op shops and the different repurposing shops in town," she said.

"So we figured we might as well harness that energy and make the most of it."

"Nambour lends itself to this kind of thing becase it's got some really fantastic old buildings and really great surroundings."

Division 10 Councillor Greg Rogerson said council was pleased to be supporting local businesses through the initiative.

"The Vintage and Retro Trail is a great opportunity to raise the profile of Nambour while encouraging people to immerse themselves in the rich history of this extraordinary regional town.

"Nambour had recently gained the attention of top rating TV programs and we now invite the broader community to explore its hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered."
