A Vibrant new community and creative hub is envisioned for Caloundra – a place where arts, community and creativity can come alive.


The Caloundra Community + Creative Hub seeks to create a public space precinct connecting The Events Centre, new district library, Caloundra Regional Gallery and town square through to Bulcock Beach.

The project area includes parks, public spaces and streetscapes within:

  • Felicity Park
  • Bill Venardos Park
  • Omrah Avenue
  • Otranto Avenue
  • Minchinton Street
  • Nutley Street
  • Bulcock Street

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Creative Caloundra

In May and June 2021 ‘community engagement 2’ we asked have we got it right, for the values, vision and design developed, from what we first heard in November and December 2020 ‘community engagement 1’. When we initially asked what you valued and envisioned for your Community + Creative Hub.

The ‘community engagement 2’ phase closed on 22 June. The community were given an opportunity to provide feedback by completing the online survey or attending one of the pop up sessions in person.

Council is now collating and translating the have we got it right feedback to updates and progression of the values, vision and concept design. This feedback will underpin development and completion of the concept design. When the design is completed, the community will be invited to celebrate the outcome ‘community engagement 3’. We then look forward to detailed design and construction (budget and approvals dependent).

The competition to win vouchers to The Events Centre and the Caloundra Regional Gallery, by completing the survey is now closed. Winners will be announced via direct contact, we wish all who entered good luck.
