Gold Coast Sporting Hall of Fame
A family called Hughes built a home called Tremaine at 152 High Street, Southport, in about 1910.
Typical of the gracious early 20th-century dwellings constructed as town became coastal resort, it was built in the Queenslander style popular from the late 19th century until World War II. Most were timber framed, clad and set on high wooden stumps.
A notable feature was the shady verandah that ran along one or more sides of the house. Tremaine was moved to Owen Park to make way for apartment complex The Oaks, restored and reopened as Gold Coast Sporting Hall of Fame.
It honours champions who reach the highest level in sport while living locally and houses an abundant collection of sports memorabilia. Queensland’s only Olympic Room is a shrine to achievement in Olympic sports.
