About Us

At Moore Park Beach Art Inc., our volunteer committee is formed by dedicated locals who advocate and engage all aspects of the arts.

We have seen that through art and visual engagement and application, that one’s creativity and curiosity inspire artists to create.

Our Motto
To have fun, explore who we are, and allow artists to be as imaginative and innovative as they like during festivals and workshops. We create a space of enjoyment for everyone, including locals, visitors and artists.

Our Vision
We endeavour to support our community while reflecting artists’ multi-layered and diverse skills, be they experienced or novice. Our program dynamically involves and integrates all of the community by utilising the power of art to connect, evolve, grow and engage. We achieve this through activities, events, fundraising and annual events such as the Moore Park Beach Arts Festival and Easter and Christmas festivals.

Additionally, we are incredibly proud that our committee works alongside other local groups such as the Moore Park Lions, The Community Association, The Scouts, local schools, and the Pink House – Coral Coast Cottage Visitor Information Centre. We also support the Kids n Co Halloween activities, Carols by Candlelight, and Australia Day Celebrations.

A good community instils values and forms an identity, guiding others to contribute.

A good community raises awareness, tells stories of significance and leads the way for expansion and growth.

Turtles

While typically not your first port of call for turtle nesting and hatching, Moore Park Beach has several turtles that call the pristine stretch of beach their home. Reporting directly to the DES, a local group of volunteers are assisting in the long term survival of the loggerhead turtles.

So when you are enjoying a nightly stroll along the beach, be mindful of what may be happening around you. Or, ideally, contact the Mon Repos Conservation Centre for a tour with a Ranger at Mon Repos, again a short drive from Bundaberg.

Shopping Centre

Moore Park Beach is more than just a beach. Locals choose to live here due to the rural setting on acreage size blocks. But what draws people to invest are unexpected facilities from a beachside community.

As you drive into Moore Park, you will notice the petrol station. The local shopping centre with over ten speciality shops is not far from there. The local IGA has everything you need, including stocking speciality items Bundabergians, specifically take a drive down to buy. And don’t forget about the Bakery, bottle-o, and chemist. Most things you’d expect to find in a big city are right here at Moore Park Beach.
