Rocky the resident brush tailed rock wallaby has new rocks for his rock wallaby residence! Say that three times! 😉 Our Image Flat Quarry recently donated two truckloads of rocks to Wildlife HQ to help establish a new enclosure for these endangered rock wallabies. Rocky will soon be joined by three female wallabies in his new home. #WildlifeWednesday

Stunning art by local artists unveiled today at VENUE 114 - the new name for Lake Kawana Community Centre.
Swipe to check out @venue114bokarina's bold fresh new look and stunning murals.💛 Energy, flow, movement and connection to the ocean vibes of the #SunshineCoast was inspiration for elements in the artwork by local artists David Houghton + EJ Zyla. The blues represent the colours of the ocean, complementing the pink of the seaweed.
Local artist Fuzeillear designed the mural at the front of #VENUE114 drawing from the meaning of the indigenous word “Kawana”, meaning wild flowers. #VENUE114

Blooming incredible! This beautiful and highly unusual flower is in bloom at the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens. ⠀

The plant produces a single flower which appears for one day only!⠀

There are several of these plants growing wild near the Whipbird Walk Sensory Garden so you may get a chance to witness this unusual event this weekend!⠀

The new car park at Russell Family Park at Montville has opened this afternoon, so if you're visiting the town this weekend parking will be easier 🚗 There are now 125 standard parking bays – 55 more than the previous gravel car park, and two disability parking bays 🌳 Landscaping will soon be completed, so you’ll see more plants go in over the coming weeks as well as further rock wall construction.
