‘Far from this Land’ exhibition

As our thoughts turn to those who fought for our freedoms, a visit to the Landsborough Historical Museum to see the Council-funded "Far from this Land" exhibition is highly recommended.  Commemorating the First World War and acknowledging its impact on the Sunshine Coast, the realities of war are told through the life experiences of four locals—soldiers Harry, James and William; and staff nurse Connie.  The exhibition is open from 9am on Friday, April 17.  For further details, visit or phone 5494 1755.

Mooloolaba sports ground amenity upgrade

Local sporting precinct users and travellers are sure to appreciate the upgraded amenities at the Mooloolah Sports Ground. Located closer to the roadway for improved visibility and access, the new amenity block meets crime prevention through environmental design criteria.  Construction should be complete by early June.

Help wage war on weeds

Our community is taking action in the fight against weeds. To learn more about the problems runaway garden plants cause to natural areas across the Sunshine Coast, come along to one of Council’s nature conservation projects—and, as a bonus, swap a bag of weeds for three native plants.  

  • Saturday, May 16, 9am-10am Sharyn Bonney Bushland Reserve, Sugarbag Road, Little Mountain
  • Tuesday, May 19, 8.30am-9.30am Emma Place Park, behind Carolan Way, Beerwah

Out and about

I’ll be at Quinn Park (Pod Café), Bells Reach on Friday, April 24 from 2pm to 4pm where I look forward to catching up with locals and discussing what’s happening in the community.
