Get your tickets today via Ticketek! Prices start at just $10.

Celebrating business success
Our region has many fantastic local businesses and it was great to see so many recognised at the 2017 Sunshine Coast Business Awards. It was an incredibly successful event, with more than 500 people in attendance and hundreds of businesses acknowledged for their success and contribution to the region.

Be storm ready
When severe weather is approaching, flood waters are starting to rise or there’s another type of disaster on the Sunshine Coast, council aims to provide important alerts to the community as quickly as possible. That’s why council has made it even easier to get the alerts you need, straight to your phone or tablet, with its CoastAlert notification service. To receive the alerts, download the SCCApp from the AppStore or Google Play and emergency notifications will be automatically sent to your smartphone and any other mobile devices with the app installed.

Christmas greetings
I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. I look forward to working with you again in 2018.
