The vision of the Society is to operate a vibrant year-around community gathering place, learning destination and public market—a unique destination that enriches the lives of Sunshine Coast residents, families, visitors, and newcomers… for generations to come. Our public amenities and engagement programs promote health and well-being of residents, contribute to our local economy (more than 50 direct jobs) and raise awareness of choices that help reduce our community’s environmental footprint, including local food knowledge.
