There are some exciting things happening in Nambour as the Hub of the Hinterland continues to live up to its reputation as a creative, welcoming community. (Nambour forecourt, pictured, is becoming a popular venue for entertainment.)

Located in the geographical centre of the Kabi Kabi First Nations Peoples traditional land, Nambour is a place of great significance.

Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 Councillor David Law said the Nambour Centre Activation Project (NCAP) is focussed on invigorating this major hinterland centre over the next 10 to 15 years.

“Our hinterland heart has so many great aspects which we want the whole Sunshine Coast community to be aware of and appreciate,” Cr Law said. 

“Activation is the driving force of the NCAP and aims to stimulate and attract public and private investment into Nambour, as well as helping to make Nambour a great place to live, work and play.”

Council has also made it easier and more cost effective for theatres, bars, nightclubs or hotel traders to establish in the Nambour Special Entertainment Precinct, slashing development application fees by 50% to incentivise new business start-ups.

“The Material Change of Use fee incentives will provide financial assistance for local businesses and community groups establishing in the precinct, which is only the second of its kind in Queensland, the first being in James Street, Fortitude Valley,” said Cr Law.

Infrastructure charges for development within targeted Nambour areas continue to be discounted by half to increase demand and create long-term employment in the area.

“I encourage potential applicants to contact Council to understand the criteria and explore payment options,” said Cr Law.
