Sunshine Coast Council is committed to protecting and enhancing our region, our communities, our economy and our natural assets.
On behalf of the community, Sunshine Coast Council developed a nomination for our region to be recognised by UNESCO as an international site of excellence, known as a biosphere.
Our region has gained international recognition as a special place, joining a world network of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The region now proudly stands as an international site of excellence and an area of natural beauty.
