Keep the Maroochy River Valley Green! Petition

This petition aims to stop the development lodged by Sunny Coast Fresh Holdings Pty Ltd to build six 2.5Ha industrial sized steel and glass greenhouses in an area of high scenic value in the beautiful Maroochy River which is currently zoned Rural.

The buildings will cover an area which will be larger than 820 average four bedroom homes and is largely located on a floodplain on the upper Maroochy River estuary.

Protect Our Scenic Amenity in the Maroochy River Valley

Protect Our Scenic Amenity in the Maroochy River ValleyThe idea of POSA started originally from a group of residents who were reading their local paper one day, only to discover that plans were in progress to a build a large scale industrial horticulture development without any consultation with the surrounding community that it will impact upon.

Since then, support from around the Sunshine Coast for POSA is growing and our Facebook page aims to be informative, hopefully insightful and as transparent as possible to issues regarding these types of developments in rural areas of scenic importance.

Yandina: From Staging Post to Township

Celebrating 150 years since the establishment of Yandina

Yandina: From Staging Post to Township

This digital story explores the community stories, history and significant events of Yandina. The film was launched as part of the Yandina Street Fair celebrations in August 2018.

Yandina was proclaimed in 1870, making it the first gazetted town in the Maroochy district, and one of the oldest towns on the Sunshine Coast.

Thanks to Audienne Blyth for the link to this short documentary that the Sunshine Coast Council made about our town’s origins in collaboration with the Yandina & District Historical Society.
