Where to from here

The adoption of the master plan provides council and stakeholders with a sound base to lobby the state and federal governments for funding. This will be conducted in partnership with the Sports Complex Management Committee, the community and council.


Sporting facilities play an important role in the local community. Master planning helps to provide infrastructure which reflects community need.

The Coolum Sports Complex Master Plan considers:

  • arrangements and uses of the site
  • the landscape
  • trends and issues
  • catchment areas and population demands
  • car parking and traffic movement.


The Coolum Sports Complex is located in the north of Coolum, surrounded by the Noosa National Park. The site covers an area of about 17 hectares.

There are currently eight sports available which include:

  • rugby league
  • cricket
  • netball
  • tennis
  • croquet
  • soccer
  • swimming.

The Coolum Sports Complex provides open space for formal and informal recreation to promote wellbeing.
