Landsborough Flying Fox colony update

A recent meeting with residents affected by a local flying fox colony was constructive and informative.  Council staff presented an overall picture of roosts across the region and a more detailed report on the Landsborough roost. This was followed by discussion on some actions to help alleviate residents’ key concerns.  It was agreed that selective vegetation removal will be undertaken and installation of an acoustic wall will be investigated further. It was also agreed that a follow up meeting to include world authority on Australian Bats Dr Les Hall will be held early in the New Year.

Award winning visitor information centre

Sincere congratulations to the Glass House Mountains Visitor and Interpretive Centre volunteer ambassadors and SCDL staff on receiving the silver award in the visitor information and services category at the 2014 Queensland Tourism Awards.  Pop in and see what they offer, its right next to the Glasshouse Country Christmas Tree.

Beerburrum festivities

It was a pleasure to attend the recent annual Beerburrum Children’s Christmas Party.  If you haven’t seen it yet, the village hall is tucked away down Anzac Ave and did a great job of hosting an authentic country town Children’s Christmas Party. It had the traditional BBQ underpinning an impressive program of children’s activities, lots of giveaways and a great local Santa to bring smiles to the faces of young and old.

Festive season

The festive season program is in full swing, with the newly designed festive season banners flying along Maleny Street, Landsborough. Families are also enjoying the Glasshouse Country Christmas Tree in Rotary Park, Glass House and the tree at Martin Rungert Park, Mooloolah Valley that form part of the region’s Christmas Tree Trail.

One of the ‘must do’ dates to earmark now is Saturday 13 December 2014 in preparation for a fun family evening at the Glasshouse Country Community Carols—I look forward to seeing you there.

Check the ‘what’s on’ section at for details about the full range of festive season events and activities.

I wish you and your families a safe, happy and healthy Christmas and a creative, relaxing holiday season.
