Australia: Sunshine Coast Increased Funding for Five Major Events

In partnership with:

The Sunshine Coast has been the major beneficiary of new funding allotments by the Queensland State Government for growing regional events tourism in the State.

Five Sunshine Coast events will benefit as a result of funding under the Queensland Government’s Regional Development Program.

Events that will receive funding over the next three years include the Cricks Noosa Festival of Surfing, which will receive $150,000 over three years from 2016 – the largest recipient from the grants program.

The event – which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year – is billed as "eight days of pure stoke" and attracts surfers from around the world. The week-long festival, which attracts some of the world's best surfers, will celebrate its 25th year in 2016.

Also on the sporting front, the International Rally of Queensland, which is held in June at Imbil in the Mary Valley, will receive $75,000 over three years from 2016.

Other Sunshine Coast events to be supported by additional funding include the Queensland International Three-Day Equestrian Event to be held at Tandur from October 3-5, the Queensland Ocean Swim Series, and the Noosa International Rugby 7s from October 9-11.
