At times, these restrictions and guidelines can change at short notice. Please be aware that events and activities may be impacted at short notice by rule changes when making bookings or planning travel.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

In keeping with the spirit of reconciliation, Cooloola Coastcare acknowledges the Kabi Kabi (Gubbi Gubbi) and Butchulla people who are the traditional custodians of the land and sea where Cooloola Coastcare operates, and recognise that these have always been places of environmental stewardship. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal people continue to play within the Cooloola community.

Partners, Collaborators & Sponsors

Cooloola Coastcare is grateful to our many grant providers, sponsors, partners, colleagues, supporters and friends who help us in so many ways through financial support, equipment, discounts, donations, volunteering and assistance in so many ways.
