Chain Effect

Many places with unique character and charm have been homogenised by the prominence of fast food chains and giant supermarket outlets.

Peregian Beach's big sister town - Coolum has gone through a huge transformation in the last year.

Noosa Junction just north of Peregian is also under pressure.

The Town Plan seems to be of little protection.


The Peregian Beach Village is a hive of locally owned cafes, shops and unique businesses run by diverse traders centered around a green village square.

How do we protect this?


Why are areas on the west side of David Low Way, zoned for 'Community Well Being & Recreation,' of interest to corporate developer?

Surely supermarket shopping is not a recreational sport yet!

    It is so important in these times to look beyond the fast food corporate poison food market. To keep a community healthy we need to support local businesses that use local produce.

    It is almost like the microcosm matches the macrocosm by keeping our bodies and our communities the best they can be.

    Maccas and Kentucky Fried do not create inner or outer health.
