Welcome to our beautiful Sunshine Coast! It is always a big step to relocate to a new place and we hope this e-kit can make it that little bit easier to access council’s many services, all designed to make your move to your new home much easier.

Sunshine Coast Council is proud to serve such a great place, renowned for our lifestyle, our vibrant, and distinct communities and our environmental assets. Our vision is to become Australia’s most sustainable region vibrant, green diverse.

You have arrived at an exciting time for the Sunshine Coast as it undergoes an economic transformation, embracing new opportunities for the future.

As well as continuing to provide essential day-to-day services, Council is working on a number of game-changing regional projects, including the new Maroochydore City Centre – Australia’s only greenfield CBD development, the Sunshine Coast Solar Farm, the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion and we are investigating the Sunshine Coast Light Rail system.

We’re also supporting the Queensland Government in the $1.8 Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital project which is well underway at Kawana and pushing for vital upgrades to the Bruce Highway and North Coast Rail Line.

We are shaping the future we want for our Sunshine Coast: new clean industries, well-paid jobs and clear career paths for our children.

Join us on this journey towards a future of prosperity and opportunity.

Mayor Mark Jamieson
