"We the people of the Cooloola + Sunshine Coast reject New Hope Corporation's plan to mine coal 20kms west of the Great Sandy Strait.
We deplore the QLD + AUS Government's acquiescence to the mining industry's reckless expansion in the name of short term capital gain.
The Mary River is ours from Conondale to River Heads and we will not have them pour industrial filth into her on any stretch let alone so close to this crucial biosphere".

NOOSA has long known the best way to protect the overall environment is to safeguard the water quality of the Noosa River and lakes system.
And there have been few better ways to raise public awareness on preserving the natural flows than the Noosa Festival of Water which will be showcased again at Lake Macdonald on Sunday 25th June.
"Today the festival has evolved to become an annual showcase of our region's ecological attributes with a primary aim of improving community awareness of how each of us can play a part protecting and preserving our environment in our day to day lives,” she said. Festival coordinator Debbie Seal of the Mary River Catchment Coordination Committee

Chef Surinder creates unique contemporary cuisine that draws from eclectic inspirations he derived in India, Europe and Australia.
He uses the ancient 5000 year old Ayurvedic philosophy to prepare his food… low in salt, sugar, slow cooked without any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. He blends in the goodness of locally grown chillies, lettuce, roselle, lime, lemons, coriander, eggplant and other produce… straight from his own and friends’ gardens.
Surinder’s cooking is rustic and full of flavour. His meals are healthy, wholesome, well balanced and full of the tastes inherent in the Punjabi recipes passed down through generations in India.
Now that's why we love it!! Kayt & Steph are bringing the duo back to Noosa Namaste Thursday 27 April.
The 2017 Australian Body Art Festival is set to take it's new home, Cooroy by storm on the 8 and 9 April!
The Australian Body Art Festival - the nation's premier body art event - is a colourful and creative experience for all ages. Held in Noosa hinterland town of Cooroy, the event is nothing short of extraordinary. For members of the public, it’s an event like nothing ever seen before. Boundaries are pushed as the human canvases are transformed into works of art before the crowd.
And that's why we Love It!!
Come and join The Moonsets for this year's Saturday Soiree. Meet the Artists, mingle with their exquisite canvasses and drink from the cup of creation!!
There will be food. There will be wine.
5pm | in the park | Cooroy
Returning to Cafe Le Monde Sunday 2nd April for another beachy arvo session. We get sand in our strings but we love it!! A tasty bar and 2 solid sets from The Moonsets 4-6pm, with the wonderfully soulful Peter Hunt takin it through til 7pm...yum.
"Kayt and Steph have a knack of filling the air with sweet melodies".
Seriously, what a lovely thing to say! Thanks Cafe Le Monde, we think you're sweet too 🙂 The Moonsets duo will be taking care of your Thursday night aural deliciousness!
Thanks very much Jai Bevan for this great shot of us from last year with our biggest fan! We're glad we're The Moonsets now for so many reasons. Somewhere between a memory and a dream The Flumes is now a name on old gig posters and dusty CD racks. Something much loved and tinkered with laid to rest. Moving on and letting go is a theme we return to again and again in song and we feel it's ripe for celebration.
The time of The Flumes has passed. Now is the time of The Moonsets.
Check out Jai's tunes, he's a great young songwriter with lots of soul
Big Love to All Strings Attached and all of the groovers who ventured out to Solbar Friday night for a wild night of music, and cheers to Rob Sharkey for another stellar live shot. We're heading back into the studio to polish off the new tunes to be released very soon, so next chance to catch us live is Cafe Le Monde Sunday 2 April 🙂
Stoked to be on a bill again with these crazy cats!!
"With our Debut Full Length Album release just around the corner, we want to tantalise your musical tastebuds with a sneaky showcase of songs from...Incantations for Strange Folk...Joining us are The Moonsets and The Quakers so be prepared for a musical journey through haunting dance grooves, progressive rock and all out debauchery of the gypsy punk flavour".
