The story behind the Airlie Beach 'Before I Die ' Chalkboard

The now-famous 'Before I Die' chalkboard sign beside our travel shop in the main street of Airlie Beach has a warm, local family history!

Several years ago the owners of Sailing Whitsundays, Keith and Dale Roberts were visiting family in New York. Whilst visiting the MOMA museum located in New York, a security guard walked up to Dale and quietly said to her, "if you write down something that might come true, it often does".

Dale then proceeded to write on the chalkboard, "I would like to be a Grandma". The very next day their son rang to break the news that they were going to be grandparents very soon. Call it a coincidence or call it fate, Dale's aspiration came true!

Keith and Dale, feeling inspired by their special day in the MOMO Museum, then created their very own 'Before I Die' chalkboard in the heart of Airlie Beach for locals and travellers to the Whitsundays to enjoy!

'Before I Die' boards are now located in approximately 70 countries, here are a few examples!
