Sub Tropic Studio is a vibrant creative hub of artist studios, workshops and exhibition spaces in the central and unique space that was once the Caloundra Bus Interchange building.
The unused space was given the creative makeover thanks to a joint initiative between Sunshine Coast Council’s Creative Spaces program and the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance.
Increasing the available studio and exhibition space for artists is a key action in the Sunshine Coast Arts Plan, and Sub Tropic Studio is the latest addition to our growing creative network.
The studio provides a great space for artists to work and collaborate and it will also be a wonderful welcome for residents and visitors as they step off the bus and experience Caloundra’s thriving creative centre.
Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance president Phil Smith said Caloundra was becoming a creative hub with artisan shops, cafes, an impressive public art trail, Caloundra Regional Gallery and now the new Sub Tropic Studio.
“I know artists across the region will be excited by the opportunities this unique new space and the model that underpins it provides,” Mr Smith said.
“So if you’re an artist or creative looking for space to practice, I encourage you to check out the new Sub Tropic Studio website.”

Sub Tropic Studios is the latest in a range of creative activities happening in Caloundra supported by the Place2 Project, including the laneway beside the Transit Centre that has been transformed with an eye-catching mural, and a touch of astro-turf, by Brisbane-based artist Leans. This mural was also supported by the Downtown Caloundra Taskforce and the Caloundra CBD Parking Meter Surplus funds.
