The Regional Inter-urban Break is often referred to as the gateway to the Sunshine Coast. The 'green space' that separates us from the Greater Brisbane area.

This important green space extends from the hinterland and rural areas surrounding the iconic Glass House Mountains in the west to the Pumicestone Passage and coastline in the east.

It contributes significantly to our natural environment and unique landscapes, which are the foundations of our Sunshine Cost way of life.

We're committed to securing this green space for future generations. 

To do this, we are:

  • learning more about the values and activities in the Regional Inter-urban Break
  • promoting the ongoing protection of the area as it exists today
  • investigating potential legislation to protect the area
  • partnering to prepare a plan to enable appropriate outdoor recreation activities to continue
  • securing and protecting land for conservation and recreation purposes
  • planning for its future as a productive and highly valued space.

We’re advocating [5124KB]for residential development to occur outside this major green space. We want to ensure the Regional Inter-urban Break continues to meet the recreation needs of a growing population and significant environments are protected in perpetuity - contributing to our region's identity and liveability.
