Our Stories

Our people are the heart of our Fraser Coast. They are the strength of our community and the drivers behind our cultural diversity. Here are just some of the stories of the many interesting people and places of our Fraser Coast.

"To me living a creative life where art fills my days continues to be an incredibly rewarding way of life."

Performer Profile: Frank Marsh

"The mere fact that someone can appreciate music is a great gift. To be able to play is the greatest gift of all."

Australia Day nominations open

“The awards recognise the volunteers who put so much time and effort into our community to make the Fraser Coast such a vibrant, family-friendly region,” Fraser Coast Mayor Chris Loft said.

A new space to create

Fraser Coast artists now have a place in Hervey Bay where they can officially make mess with opening of the new Fraser Coast Creative Space. 

Spectacular Opportunity for Acoustic Guitarists

As a part of the Acoustic Guitar Spectacular at Gatakers Artspace on Saturday 25 November we have a fantastic opportunity for a local emerging or professional guitarist to perform on the night. The selected guitarist will also receive a one-on-one mentoring session with Soenke Meinen, Bruce Mathiske or Michael Fix.

"The warm climate and relaxed atmosphere, are the ingredients that drive my passion."

Artist Profile: Susie Lewis

"But way beyond sharing just the surface of our works, we have a community that support and encourage progression of skills and ideas and seek to push us all to new creative heights."
