There has been a flurry of activity across the Gympie region, with more events and activities for residents and visitors than we have ever seen. I recently attended the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship at Miva. This event provides a great national profile for our region and I was impressed by the fast paced enthusiasm of both the participants and spectators. 

Many of my Councillor colleagues have also been out and about at various activities and events such as the 2nd Annual Rosella Festival, the opening of Hibiscus Aged Care facility, the Kilkivan campdraft and the Well Persons Health Check Day. And of course we can't forget the Gympie Show. Congratulations to the Show Committee and everyone who worked on this fantastic event. We were proud to once again sponsor this event for our community. It was a great opportunity to showcase our finest produce and activity. It was also wonderful to see the Mary Valley Rattler team had a stand at the show and were overwhelmed by the positive feedback and excitement from the community about the Rattler being back on track this December. 

Council was also pleased to bring Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise to the region over the weekend. The program helped us to highlight many of our region's produce and tourism activities. Already the feedback regarding Sunrise has been overwhelming. We want to thank James Tobin and the whole Sunrise team for helping us to promote our great region.

Noosa Road, Tandur – Bitumen Sealing


Council has allocated funding in the 2016/17 financial year to extend the bitumen sealing of Noosa Road, at Tandur, as shown in the plan of work overleaf.


Works proposed

The project will extend the bitumen seal of Noosa Road by approximately 500 metres, up to and including the Madill Road intersection. The finished road will be to a 7.0 metre wide, two lane sealed standard.

The work will include:

  • vegetation clearing and earthworks
  • stormwater drainage
  • road pavement and
  • bitumen sealing

Council endeavours to minimise disturbance of established vegetation on its projects where possible.


Traffic management

During construction property accesses may be affected for short durations. Council officers will contact residents, where relevant, to discuss timing for access if work is likely to impact entrances. Your patience during construction is appreciated. Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of all road users.



Construction is expected to commence in early 2017, subject to weather.
