“Transforming Health, Wellness and Resilience through Sport and Recreation”

Created and incorporated in 2008, Maleny District Sport & Recreation Club Inc. is a volunteer umbrella organisation formed to

  • support and promote member clubs’ endeavours

  • continue to ensure sport and recreational facilities are developed for all in Maleny

  • work with district clubs to assist in representing their needs to all tiers of government

  • identify and apply for funding for upgraded and new district facilities

  • create and maintain sport and recreational facilities on the Maleny Community Precinct

Over 54 local sport, service, arts and recreational clubs are affiliated with MDSRC, (and there are) with more than 280 individual and 12 corporate members.

Since 2008 MDSRC volunteers have published a weekly electronic “Community Billboard”, or newsletter – news is supplied by member clubs – contacts, events, performances, training days, fund raisers and more are included. The newsletter is estimated to reach 2000 plus readers weekly, circulating throughout Maleny’s large network of volunteer organisations.

MDSRC hosts and organises annually:

  • The Maleny Awards Dinner that recognises

    the achievements of the district’s outstanding individuals, teams, clubs and administrators

  • Andrew Powell’s Charity Cricket Match, with funds generated donated to the Lung Foundation of Australia

  • The Aussie Day Expo at Maleny Showgrounds, a Showcase for community groups that combines with the Australia Day New Citizen’s Ceremony and the Apex Club of Maleny’s “Big Aussie Day” Breakfast.

  • Working collaboratively to promote and encourage sport and recreational activities and create facilities, in 2015 MDSRC was granted a lease by the Sunshine Coast Council over 6.4 hectares of land on the Maleny Community Precinct.

The MDSRC leased area, Maleny Sports Park, is zoned for sport and community activities, and business planning for the staged development of sport and recreational facilities is currently underway. MDSRC works in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Council and its member clubs in the development of Maleny Sports Park to deliver quality sporting and recreational facilities for the district that maximise the land use for the people of Maleny and surrounds – now and into the future.

The club committee meets on the first Thursday of the month at 4.30 pm at the MDSRC Clubhouse, located at the bottom of Parklands Drive (off Porters Lane) on the Maleny Community Precinct.
