New Caloundra Community Information Centre attracts over 40 local volunteers

New Caloundra Community Information Centre attracts over 40 local volunteers
May 12, 2021

The Sunshine Coast's new Caloundra Community Information Centre which officially opened on 10th May has attracted more than 40 volunteers to provide tourist information, directions and local event information to visitors and locals alike, seven days a week.

Division 2 Councillor Terry Landsberg said the opening is the result of a great partnership between Sunshine Coast Council, Caloundra Tourism, the local business community and the fantastic volunteers that have stepped up to run the centre.

Landsberg noted “the Caloundra community expressed a need for an information centre and I’m extremely proud to be here today to launch this important facility at 77 Bulcock Street.

“Beyond the great intel that the centre will provide to all who stop by, the delivery of this service reinforces the collaborative efforts of all groups working to help Caloundra succeed.

“The Caloundra Community Information Centre will help our community and visitors alike, to really capitalise on all that Caloundra has to offer, thereby strengthening the local economy.”

Caloundra Tourism Chair John Orning acknowledged that Caloundra, in particular Bulcock Street, had experienced a bumper holiday season which had increased demand for an information centre.

Orning added “the Centre, and the great local knowledge of the volunteers who will run it, will be a great help to businesses in the area, informing visitors where to eat, stay, explore and shop.

“We are happy to have worked with Sunshine Coast Council to get the Caloundra Community Information Centre open.”

The new Caloundra Community Information Centre is located at 77 Bulcock St and will operate from 9am-3pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 1pm weekends and public holidays.
