    Movie - May - Peter Rabbit

    The stubborn and naughty Peter Rabbit (voiced by James Corden) causes chaos in the home and garden of an irritable human named Mr McGregor (Sam Neil/Domhnall Gleeson).

    However, their rivalry grows even more heated when they both fall in love with a new neighbour (Rose Byrne) who adores animals.

    Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki and Margot Robbie also lend their voices to this comedy, which is based on the children's stories by  Beatrix Potter, and directed by Will Gluck. As always, the movie will be only part of the night's entertainment. What will it be this time? Carrot-peeling competitions? 

    A film for all ages. Please purchase your tickets here now. Please note that, if you do not have Paypal, you can still use your credit card after clicking on the Paypal button on the next screen.

    NQCC at Eco Fiesta

    Come and meet up with and find out about the work of NQCC at Eco Fiesta, a free event that encourages the community to become more aware of the importance of the environment in our lives.

    In addition to NQCC, there will be a wide range of exhibitors and live entertainment. The event will provide you with ideas, advice and inspiration!

    Take the opportunity to become a member and/or a volunteer for NQCC and learn about our wins, our campaigns and our up-coming events, because, as the Founder of Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson, said:

    'The economy is a wholly owned subsidiary of the environment, not the other way around

    Eco Fiesta is a family friendly, smoke and alcohol free event. ATM onsite.

    New Economy Symposium

    A New Economy for North Queensland symposium will bring together people keen to explore (or already exploring) new, more sustainable ways of doing things in areas such as food and energy, work, production and consumption, social enterprise, the built environment, income distribution and population. It will be an opportunity to look outside the box, to creatively question traditional ways of doing things, and to explore new options for a fair, flourishing and sustainable region. 

    Our goal is clear: Communities and economies that fit within the productive capacity of a healthy environment. 

    Join us for a thought-provoking and direction-shifting weekend on beautiful Magnetic Island. 

    Call for proposals open to 4 May. Final program distributed 30 May. Bookings open 30 May.
