Christmas convoy connects Noosa


A festive convoy of Christmas cheer will come to life over four nights through Noosa this December.

The Connecting Noosa Christmas Convoy aims to bring the Christmas spirit to local families and recognise the efforts of our emergency services following one of the most challenging 12 months.

“It’s so exciting to be able to bring the festive cheer to the front yards of our residents,” Noosa Mayor Clare Stewart said.

The convoy is an initiative of Noosa Council with the support of Noosa’s local emergency services.

Corporate partners HOT91 and Cricks Noosa have also jumped onboard.

Cr Stewart said the convoy aims to spread the Christmas cheer in a COVIDSafe way in what’s been a challenging year.

“It’s unfortunate that many of the regular community Christmas events can’t go ahead due to the pandemic restrictions, but hopefully this will ensure we can all enjoy the Christmas spirit with our neighbours and family,” Cr Stewart said.

The convoy runs from Monday December 7 to Thursday December 10. Maps of the routes are available on Council’s website and will be promoted via Council’s social media channels and HOT91.

The convoy starts in Boreen Point and Cooroibah on Monday night December 7 and moves to Kin Kin, Cooran, Pomona and Cooroy on Tuesday. It travels through parts of Tewantin on Wednesday December 10, followed by the beachside suburbs of Peregian, Castaways and Sunrise Beach on Thursday afternoon December 11.

Noosa Police Inspector Ben Carroll said it’s a thrill to be involved in such a unique COVIDSafe event.

“We jumped at the chance to be part of the convoy because it’s a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas with our community,” he said.

“Our officers and all emergency service providers have been tested through last year’s bushfires and during the pandemic shutdown.”
