Did you know that Caloundra South is now the fastest growing residential development in Australia? I was pleased to join a tour of the rapidly emerging Division 1 community of Caloundra South on Tuesday, March 12. The tour included an escorted drive through the first suburbs of Aura Central that residents will start to call home with around 300 lots having been already sold! Construction of residential lots is well advanced and first settlements are expected in April with the first new roads into Aura Central being opened to the public around mid-year. The Aura Business Park is also progressing well which will contribute to the 20,000 jobs that the Caloundra South development needs to create. When you get the opportunity, I encourage you to visit this emerging community and see the progress.
Cultural Heritage Prizes
The University of the Sunshine Coast will host on Thursday, April 4 its annual Faculty of Arts, Business and Law Awards and Prizes Ceremony. As Heritage portfolio Councillor, it’s a great honour to attend and present the commemorative certificates on behalf of Sunshine Coast Council, for which two prizes are sponsored to the two highest achieving students in HIS200 Heritage: Australian and Global Contexts.
