The Keeper Project

The Keeper Project 2021 takes place in Coolum. It involves over 10 Sunshine Coast based artists and creative practitioners along with numerous local community groups and businesses. The project commences in July and will run until December.

Green Bins

Council has made the decision to roll out an opt-out garden waste bin service to Sunshine Coast households from July 2022 (it’s opt-in at the moment and only 30 percent of homes have one).
A region-wide garden waste bin service will divert garden clippings, weeds and leaves from landfill. It will extend our landfill life and, when transitioned to a FOGO service, will importantly prevent ONE MILLION tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions being released into the atmosphere over the next 30-50 years.

Alley Cat Cafe

Our neighbour alley Cat Cafe has recently expanded and are renovating.  Please show your support by dropping by for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon cocktail on the weekends

Cr Maria Suarez, Division 9 Update

Last night Coolum Business and Tourism held a Luau event hosted by Ash from Hot91 with guest speakers Matt from Visit Sunshine Coast, Ayllie from Sunshine Coast Airport and Tim from Sunshine Coast Council.

Coolum Business and Tourism are really proactive with so many great initiatives on the go. Really proud at how well they are going with the 4573 Shop Local card, the Visit Coolum programs, 12th season of Flicks in the Park, ‘Sounds of the Springs’ and night markets in Jack Morgan Park. #livelocalshoplocal
