Features of the Electorate

The Pumicestone Electorate is home to some of the best beaches and recreational areas in the State, not to mention wildlife conservation parks and cultural landmarks of great significance. It is home to the Gubbi Gubbi people, the traditional owners and custodians of this magnificent place in South East Queensland.

With stunning beaches to rival the best that Queensland has to offer stretching along the Bribie Island coast line from Woorim right the way up to the tip almost touching Caloundra, there really is no other place that offers so much diversity.

Pumicestone really is a playground in the sun for everyone with so many exciting events that locals and visitors alike enjoy each year.
