We are a group of residents
from Doonan Bridge Road and other parts of Verrierdale,
formed to voice our concerns about the safety, speed
limit, sub-standard design, redirection of natural
floodwater flows, excessive drainage and use of extensive
guard railing in the so called Council 'upgrade' of Doonan
Bridge Road, and the effects it will have, and is having
on wildlife, particularly adjacent to the Doonan Creek
Our objectives are to protect and retain our quiet, natural, rural lifestyle from inappropriate development, future aircraft noise from the proposed airport expansion, residential development of ex-cane fields and any other issues which may affect our quality of life in this wonderful area.
The reason many moved to the area and love living here is because of the natural values it offers and we will endeavour to protect these.
If you agree with our values
and objectives, please get involved by joining us, free of charge.
Where is Verrierdale

Verrierdale is in division 9 of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council. Since the Palaszczuk government swept to power in 2015, Verrierdale is now in the state electorate of Ninderry, whilst its federal division is Fairfax.
