Nambour RSL Club is committed to contributing to the future of Sippy Downs

After more than two years of planning, Nambour RSL Club has lodged a development application to build a new Community Club in the heart of the thriving Sippy Downs area.

The Club has been successfully operating in Nambour for over fifty years and has won many awards for its community giving, services, facilities and industry leadership by staff.

General Manager, Suzanne Long, says the club has achieved many milestones and is looking to invest in another growth area of the Sunshine Coast by building a new, not for profit community club to offer high-quality facilities, dining, entertainment and family gathering options.

“Our Board and team is very proud of the well-recognised club we have provided for Nambour and we’d like to offer our experience in community club management to support the growing community at Sippy Downs, which has many new commercial and residential offerings but very limited hospitality or club options for local families, students and people who live and work locally,” Ms Long said.

“Our community consultation so far indicates that local people would welcome a new community club that’s focused on sports, education, arts and entertainment and can generate long-term economic, environmental and social benefits to the community through an iconic club and venue,” she said.

“The club’s completion will be a staged development in keeping with Council’s codes and the local area plan and it will include a Community club that caters for the needs of members and guests providing facilities such as café, restaurants, bar, car parking and accommodation.”

To date, the Nambour RSL Club has given back over $3.1 million to the Sunshine Coast community, for commemorative services, schools, charities and community organisations, through its annual giving and sponsorship programs.

Council is considering the development application and an outcome is expected to be advised in late 2018.

4556 Chamber of Commerce President: Ryan McLintockFrom Our President

I am writing to inform you of my resignation as your President of the 4556 Chamber of Commerce. This decision has not come easy, however, this is the correct decision for myself personally and professionally at this time as I seek to take on further opportunities. I have been fortunate enough to be involved with the 4556 Chamber since February 2013 and then as President from November 2013. During that time I have met some amazing people along the way and have been lucky enough to work with an inspirational executive management team.

The 4556 Chamber of Commerce is an integral part of the local business community joining together the varying suburbs of Buderim, Sippy Downs, Forest Glen, Tanawah and Kunda Park for the first time. This vision and mission is essential with focus on working across each business community. This allows us to create a platform for networking, education and to assist businesses in getting to know each other with the vision of us all working together and in turn stimulate the local economy.

My resignation has created an opportunity for dynamic and passionate leader to take the reins of the chamber leading the executive team to continue to meet the organisational goals whilst supporting the members across the 4556 post code. The executive team felt it was very important to notify each you, our valued members, notifying the position that has become available. We are now seeking expressions of interest for this position so if you think this is the challenge for you or you know the person perfect for this position then please forward expressions of interest to our Secretary Gail Lockyer at

In addition to this the 4556 Chamber of Commerce is also looking for a Vice President to partner and support the President ensuring its success for the future of the 4556 Chamber of commerce and its strong member base.

Nominations will close on Monday 22nd June and voting will take place on Tuesday 23rd June. Please note as a part of the constitution only members of the 4556 Chamber of Commerce are allowed to be nominees for the above positions. Pleasecontact us if you wish to discuss this further.

Thank you for your time and I am confident that 4556 Chamber is in good hands to continue its growth in the local area.

Ryan McLintock

In response to significant feedback from the community, Digital Sunshine Coast has partnered with a range of telecommunications providers to display coverage maps that demonstrate business grade broadband availability.

The information provided comes directly from the telecommunications providers; each of them were requested to provide one type of technology solution that would best meet the needs of the business community.
The Digital Sunshine Coast team and its partners do not endorse any one telecommunication provider over the other. This map is still a work in progress, however it has been created to help the business community with information regarding potential solutions now.

The Sippy Downs and District Community Association Inc

The Sippy Downs and District Community Association Inc

Our Association

SDDCA LOGO - Master 2 500 jpgThe Sippy Downs & District Community Association Inc (SDDCA) was established in 2003 to promote the interests of residents and business, develop local networks and foster a sense of community in this fast-growing area. The SDDCA is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation. Prior to this, local residents had met to discuss their concerns that there was no organisation to represent them and act as a coordinating body. Some of these residents had been members of the previous Tanawha and District Community Association. It was agreed that given the growth of Sippy Downs, it was logical that it be the name of the new association and the SDDCA was born.

How we operate

The Association focuses on key local issues affecting Sippy Downs & District, for example:

Roads & Traffic
Community Development
Services for youth and older residents

This Association presents a united voice on these issues to all levels of government. We work closely with our elected representatives, the Sunshine Coast Regional Council, the State Government, and other key stakeholders including schools, developers and the University of the Sunshine Coast.

The Association conducts a range of meetings and forums which are open to all members and residents. A regular newsletter is also circulated to members. An entirely voluntary body, the SDDCA has an annually elected Management Committee and sub-committees dedicated to specific areas of interest, like the Environment Sub-committee. We are keen to recruit new volunteers for these sub-committees and other proposed sub-committees to cover areas like events and membership.
