Support local events

It’s been fantastic to see various community groups in our townships up and running again and offering residents opportunities to get out and about.  Under COVID safe practices, the Landsborough Markets are operating every Saturday from 8am-1pm at the Landsborough Hall, the Peachester Heritage Centre has recommenced their open days on the last Sunday of the month 10am-3pm behind the Peachester Community Hall, and there is a wonderful opportunity to support the inaugural Beerburrum Art Show exhibition on Saturday 14 November 10am-4pm at the Beerburrum Hall.

Are you disaster ready?  

As you know, disaster can strike anytime, anywhere, so be sure your household is ready, and your neighbours are too. As a community, our hinterland townships take care of each other. Now is a good time to make sure you have supplies ready to stay home safely and an evacuation bag in case you must leave quickly in an emergency. To find the latest updates, practical resources and what to do before, during and after an emergency visit disasterhub.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
