rest, relaxation and renewal
Situated on 50 hectares of picturesque bushland, SU QLD’s Cooroibah Campsite on the Sunshine Coast is open exclusively to groups we partner with for the purposes of our Christian mission – small or large churches, Christian youth organisations, and schools with an SU QLD Chaplain. The campsite is not available to the general public. With a rich heritage hosting hundreds of Christian camps, the property marks a serene corner of coastal Queensland. SU QLD’s heart is to see the campsite used in furtherance of our mission and as a place of rest, relaxation, and renewal. If your goal is to disconnect with the world and spend quality time in a community, then this is the campsite for you!
