Surprise the family with a trip to Nambour on the Sunshine Coast. Nambour is a gateway to the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland and is known for its retro appeal, vintage footpaths, and bustling café. You can unwind and enjoy the scenery.

But wait, there’s more! If you wish to explore the area, several fantastic events are happening this September. Please take a look at our list.

The Big Bike Film Night

Majestic Cinemas Nambour, September 7

The Big Bike Film Night will bring the best cycling short films worldwide to the Sunshine Coast. A Taup local was inspired to move from weekend bike enthusiast to starting one of Australasia’s most famous short film festivals in 2014 to share his love of bikes and aid the community.

A lovely young Australian bike packer learns from her adventure- finishing a gorgeous trip to Hell; a visually compelling film set in postcard Tuscany following a 74-year old bicicletta rider whose spirit personifies cycling; and more are among this year’s treasure chest of bike flicks.


Chevallum State School, September 8

Strawbfest is a popular and well-known festival on the Sunshine Coast. The festival will celebrate its 37th anniversary in 2023.

Chevallum State School P and C are happy to join with many local companies and farms to commemorate our area’s history as a strawberry farming region and provide you with a variety of strawberry goods, as well as a variety of entertainment and excellent food.

Strawbfest has family-friendly rides, a licenced strawberry daiquiri bar, live music on three stages, a fun-filled sideshow alley, delectable food, a MEGA Raffle, farm-fresh strawberries, and delicious strawberry desserts. Keep an eye out for the spectacular fireworks display at 9 p.m.

Twelfth Night

Nambour Lind Lane Theatre, September 15 – 23

If you want a terrific theatre experience in Nambour, The Lind is the place to go. They provide a wide range of entertainment for individuals of all ages. Furthermore, their state-of-the-art theatre with hearing augmentation is an air-conditioned theatre with seating for more than 100 people.

Catch William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in September. It tells the narrative of Viola, a young woman who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is taken to court as a countess, and falls head over heels in love with a Duke. 

In this story of mistaken identity, loss, love, passion, and pranks, nothing is as it seems! In this sleek 1980s-inspired production, one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, full of humour, wickedness, and wonder, bursts to life.
