The Women to Women Business Expo at The J will feature a diversity of innovative local female-led businesses in the arts, services and food industries. W2W was created to support local communities and businesses by providing the opportunity to connect, collaborate, learn and create opportunities for success. The expo will be held on Wednesday, 3 July from 4pm to 9pm at The J, Noosa.

The event will showcase a variety of Sunshine Coast local female-led businesses identified for being innovative in the arts, service and food industries by offering vendor space, exhibitions and workshops. W2W Business Expo aims to bring businesses and consumers together under one roof.

This year’s event will include free workshops on the topics of business management, marketing and finance. There will be a wine tasting workshop (for a small fee) and food and beverages from onsite vendors will be available.

The keynote speaker will be Sandra Arico, President of Innovate Noosa. Participants can learn from the best and the brightest in the industry, as they network with like-minded professionals and learn strategies to advance their business.

The Women to Women Business Expo is proudly presented by The University of the Sunshine Coast, Centre for International Development, Social Entrepreneurship and Leadership (CIDSEL), The J Noosa and Noosa Council.




Council has taken out two accolades at this year’s Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia, Queensland (IPWEAQ) Excellence Awards.

The awards recognise councils and individuals who have demonstrated best practice and innovation in public works projects across Queensland.

Council collected the awards for innovation in the design and construction of public works projects for the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve Rainforest Discovery Centre and received a high commendation for the design and construction of public works projects over $10 million for its Evans Street Upgrade.

This is the second year that Sunshine Coast Council has taken out the innovation award with its Nambour Youth Activity Centre and RSL War Memorial receiving top honours in 2016.

Council’s $4.7 million Rainforest Discovery Centre sits within the 55-hectare Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and offers spectacular views of the heritage-listed Glass House Mountains.

Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay said the Rainforest Discovery Centre had been sensitively designed to fit in with the look and feel of the reserve.

“Visitors of all ages will go on a journey of inspiration and discovery in the Rainforest Education centre, which features interactive displays, multi-sensory experiences and exhibits,” Cr McKay said.

“Continuing that journey is an elevated boardwalk that snakes its way through the rainforest, a new viewing platform and café offering some of the best views of the Glasshouse Mountains.

“I applaud not only the construction team, who overcame a myriad of building challenges on this environmentally sensitive site, but also the many people, including the Design Advisory Panel, volunteers and Friends of Mary Cairncross, whose contribution has been, and will continue to be, central to the ongoing success of the new Discovery Centre.”

Division 8 Councillor Jason OPray said the $20 million upgrade of Evans Street was the largest transport project ever to be delivered entirely by council.

“Evans Street represents much more than a successful engineering outcome – it has transformed a congested, visually unappealing two-lane road, to a four-lane efficient transport corridor, with landscaping and architectural features, three major signalised intersections and state of the art technology,” Cr OPray said.

“It was a landmark project for council – it was technically challenging, and was completed successfully on budget and two months ahead of schedule.

“I would like to congratulate the project team for this well-deserved industry recognition.”
