Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) update - council parks and beaches are open with social distancing required. Visit council's page on COVID-19 for more information.

Please note: Our teams are out and about caring for council’s 1069 hectares of parklands and reserves across the Sunshine Coast region. Prolonged wet periods can delay our regular maintenance schedule and even when the rain clears, we need to allow the ground to dry out or risk significant damage to our green spaces. We appreciate that our community is our eyes and ears on the ground and thank you for your patience while we schedule maintenance in the most efficient way.

If you see something that needs attention, you can log requests via council’s website, livechat, phone 5475 7272, or email us at customerservice@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
