  • Tuesday 11 May 2021

So important you have your say on the Sunshine Coast’s public transport future

Mark a spot in your calendar because your chance to come and chat to the Sunshine Coast Mass Transit Project team in person is Monday 24 May from 10am-noon at Beerwah Library.

We know we need a sustainable and efficient option as our population grows but we want to know your thoughts about the range of options being considered, from road upgrades, a quality bus corridor, rapid bus services to trackless trams, light rail and more.

Visit council’s website for details on all the engagement activities and to have your say on public transport options before June 22.

Heritage Trades – Cobb and Co Museum

If you like things that were made to last and created the good old-fashioned way, then you’ll love this. On Friday 4 June, Cobb and Co Museum present Heritage trades – a free event as part of Fridays at Bankfoot House. Join the museum team as you’ll learn how to create stick furniture in a hands-on demonstration and hear how heritage trades were necessary to keep coaching alive in colonial times. Registration is essential so visit to book.

Planned burns in Landsborough and Mount Mellum

Council’s annual planned burn season is underway and is designed to help plant species that rely on fire to regenerate and to reduce fuel on the ground before the bushfire season.

In the nearby area, burns are planned in Racemosa Environment Reserve, Landsborough and East Mount Mellum Nature Reserve, Mount Mellum. Planned burns will be undertaken before September, if conditions are suitable. Trained council officers work with the QFES to carefully assess each site and prepare for the burns. An exact day for the burn can’t be provided in advance, as timing is dependent on weather and site conditions. Keep up to date with our burn schedule via council’s Facebook page and website.
