The Fraser Coast Regional Council recognises that art, culture and heritage play an important part in creating and maintaining a livable, healthy and happy community.
The Fraser Coast has an active and vibrant arts community with a first class theatre, two
major art galleries and a yearly calendar of performances, workshops and exhibitions.
The Fraser Coast region boasts a culturally diverse population. We celebrate our diversity
through a variety of activities including:
