To create a community hub, the Co-operative bought 29 Matthew Street, Nambour, from the Queensland Government in 2014.
Known as Creekside, the building is opposite Quota Park, the children’s adventure playground, the Youth Precinct (skate park), and Petrie Creek.
Creekside is conveniently located in the Nambour central business area, near schools and the transport terminal.
Some facilities and services at Creekside are already operating. When renovations are finished, Creekside will provide physical and social spaces for residents, businesses and community groups:
- a coffee shop will offer training and employment access a range of hospitality roles
- onsite services will include social and community programs such as school holiday care, information and referral, and community engagement programs
- facilities for business will include meeting room hire, commercial kitchen hire, training and seminars, and warehouse space hire
