News and Announcements

The Mooloolah Community Centre is always busy undertaking new challenges and projects.  This page will keep you up to date with media, news, social media and announcements for the Community.

Men's Shed Update

As of August 2018, MVCC has approval to go ahead with the Men's Shed for the rear of the Centre, where the garden has been previously. This is wonderful news, that has been planned, worked and waited for over a long period of time!

Centre volunteers are now hard at work writing and submitting grant applications, for funding this important project. There was a town meeting recently and it was so very well attended, showing that there is lots of support and interest within our community for this facility. Lots of people were keen to get involved, and a steering committee was formed at the meeting.

Thanks to all the community members, Council, and our local members who are supporting this great initiative. Stay tuned for updates.

We are looking to recruit a volunteer secretary for the above group.
The group is in the initial set up stage and there will be a requirement to meet to establish the set up of the group on regular occasion in the initial set up period.

Once the group is established, the group will meet four times a year, with a full activation of the disaster plan once a year.

The duties will be, but not limited to, providing secretary support to the meetings, admin of the group, support to the Coordinator and Deputy at times of emergency activation to be available to record all actions and duties as required.

Interested? then please send an email to with information about you, why you would like to be considered for this volunteer post and ideally a resume, along with a telephone number so we can contact you.

Some information about the Group:

In recognition of the size and diversity of the Sunshine Coast region the Sunshine Coast Local Disaster Management Group works with community organisations, local business groups, and others, to prepare disaster/emergency and business continuity plans for sub regional areas of the Sunshine Coast area as needed.

The re-establishment of the Mooloolah / Eudlo community sub group provides a stronger community input into all aspects of disaster preparedness, prevention, response and recovery and will foster the strengths of natural and potential community leaders.

Communities have collective knowledge which increases the capacity to self-organise effectively and develop links and connections within their community, opens lines of communication between the community and the Local Disaster Coordination Centre, emergency services and other agencies. It also provides an opportunity to be inclusive, enabling equitable participation and building the capacity of individuals in the community to contribute and lead.

While the Sunshine Coast Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) is responsible for maintaining the overall regional disaster management plan, the Mooloolah / Eudlo community sub group, with its local knowledge, will act in the local community’s interests to prepare for, and wherever and whenever possible in the initial stages, respond to a major incident or natural disaster. Resilience within the community to natural hazards and human-caused events starts with the individual and encompasses those individuals, community groups and networks, business, government and non-government agencies that are representative within these communities. Community resilience is about building local level capacity and empowerment.

The purpose of the Mooloolah / Eudlo Local Disaster Management Community Sub-Group is to establish a core group of people within a local community, who possess the local knowledge and expertise to ensure that disaster management and disaster operations within the local area are managed. The following arrangements form part of the Queensland Disaster Management Arrangements to assist with the management of disaster operations within the Sunshine Coast region.
