It’s official; some unnamed lanes in Gibsons will now be known by names drawn from the Beachcombers TV series (photo via Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives), which was filmed in the town.
Council has approved a Beachcomber Lane, a Relic’s Lane, a Jesse’s Lane and a Persephone Lane. There was some worry about the apostrophes being confusing, but Councillor Silas White argued for keeping them so the names were consistent with the existing Molly’s Lane.
But, Council had to change their minds about Nick’s Lane. The name was too similar to a nearby street (Hicks Lane), so they went with Adonidas Lane.
Which, as Mayor Wayne Rowe demonstrates, could create other problems.
There is already a street in Gibsons named after the actor who played Nick Adonidas – Bruno Gerussi.
