Award-winning health program returns

As we contemplate our New Year’s resolution list for 2018, Healthy Sunshine Coast is a great inclusion with a range of free or low-cost activities designed to improve health and wellbeing. The award-winning Healthy Sunshine Coast program will return in 2018 with new and exciting additions to the program and I encourage residents to check out the full range today.

Registrations are now open for Kids in Action 2018

Kids in Action is back for 2018. Teachers who are keen to find out more about this award-winning environmental education program are invited to join us at an information evening on Thursday 8 February, 4pm at Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens.
