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.

Thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible.
The 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
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.
