Cooloola Coastcare Association Inc (CCAI) with the support of Gympie Regional Council acquired a lease over part of Lot 69 near the Complex on the corner of Tin Can Bay and Bayside Roads. CCAI received funds from the Qld Gambling Community Benefit Fund in October 2012 to erect a shed for storage of equipment and educational resources for community benefit. The shed was completed in October 2013.
The Coastcare shed is strategically positioned between the Cityfarm Nursery for growing native plants and a future Men's Shed. Coastcare's aim is to develop this site as a showcase for sustainable practices in Natural Resource Management (NRM), exhibiting Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) drainage design, energy and water savings and supporting local biodiversity in its landscaping.
