The Maleny Community Centre provides a range of venues and facilities to support the arts and cultural activities of the Sunshine Coast.

Maleny Community Centre Inc (MCC) has been owned and run by the community of Maleny for more than 100 years and receives no ongoing government support. The MCC works collaboratively with many other community organizations to provide social and cultural amenity in the region.

The facilities have been upgraded to provide increased social capital, amenity and liveability within the community, increased financial independence, and the means to support cultural, economic and social enterprises in the region into the future.

The Main Hall is fitted with new digital technologies to support cinema and theatre performances, and, through a more advanced internet presence, will provide affordable on-line information, promotion and sales services to users of the facility.  MCC will continue to provide a variety of excellent, modern Community Centre spaces, including a concert-ready modern main hall, for use by a broad base of people thus delivering lasting economic and community benefits.  The main building is self sustaining using solar power and water tanks.Closed
