The Coast will welcome around 150,000 guests from over 40 countries. This will generate about $100 million for the local economy.
It is expected that guests to the events will also be exploring all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer during their stay - that’s worth tens of millions of dollars to the local economy.
Council is working hard to ensure the celebrations are enjoyed by everyone. To make guests’ stay as enjoyable as possible, council encourages the community to join in the celebrations - take part, say a friendly hello and lend a helping hand.
