Connecting Noosa convoy spreads Christmas cheer
The vehicles are polished and Santa is locked in as Noosa prepares for some Christmas cheer with the Connecting Noosa Christmas convoy from Monday 6 December to Thursday 9 December.
Mayor Clare Stewart said some additional streets have been added to try and reach as much of the shire as possible this year.
Community Development Manager Alison Hamblin said the route on day three had been extended to include parts of Noosaville.
“After reviewing the routes and based on feedback, the convoy will drive down Gympie Terrace and make a stop at the Noosa Boat Ramp on Wednesday afternoon,” she said.
The convoy starts in Boreen Point and Cooroibah on Monday night 6 December and moves to Kin Kin, Cooran, Pomona and Cooroy on Tuesday. It travels through parts of Tewantin and Noosaville on Wednesday 8 December and concludes on Thursday 9 December with visits to the beachside suburbs of Peregian, Castaways and Sunrise Beach and Hastings Street.
Noosa Police Acting Inspector Ben Carroll said all emergency services are excited to be back onboard.
“It’s a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas with the community and allows residents to thank the work of the emergency service personnel,” he said.
With COVID restrictions easing, the convoy will stop at a number of locations on each day to allow youngsters to catch up with Santa and check out the vehicles.
Maps of the routes are available on Council’s website and will be promoted via Council’s social media channels and HOT91.
The convoy is an initiative of Noosa Council, supported by the local emergency services, HOT91 and Madill Motor Group.
