Are you a community group looking for a unique facility to hold meetings, conferences, expos and events?

If the answer is yes, make sure you contact Sunshine Coast Council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre for a personalised inspection today and ask about the subsidised venue hire rates.

Division 3 Councillor Peter Cox said Lake Kawana Community Centre is a modern, multi-functional facility offering 15 unique spaces for hire.

“This venue is a focal point for the local community, not-for profit groups and commercial entities to develop cohesion, cultural identity and a sense of place, plus it can accommodate a variety of uses and events,” Cr Cox said.

“It’s important to note that council provides registered not-for-profit community organisations access to reduced hire costs as part of its annual endorsed fees and charges schedule.

“This enables cost effective solutions for community organisations that deliver events or conduct meetings as part of their operations.

“To be eligible for the subsidised rates, organisations need to provide a copy of their not-for-profit status as well as complete the relevant venue hire booking forms available from the venue. “

Cr Cox said for the past 10 years, Lake Kawana Community Centre has hosted a variety of events including conferences, gala dinners, classes, music gigs, live performances, expos, meetings and seminars for both commercial and community groups.

“The facility offers a capacity of up to 550 banquet style dinners, conference space for up to 750 seated, meeting spaces for small and large groups, multi-functional, flexible spaces for exhibitions, a commercial kitchen plus small kitchenettes and serving areas and comprehensive audio-visual capabilities,” Cr Cox said.

“Nestled along the beautiful lake at Bokarina, Lake Kawana Community Centre is centrally located for all areas of the Sunshine Coast and offers ample parking for customers.”
