An energetic crew finished painting the display area walls and replaced all the original displays. Don't they look magnificent!! 

Ada at NICA

Ada was invited to give a presentation to members of Noosa Integrated Catchment Association (NICA) at their October 19th "Monday on the deck" function. 

Sunday 17th May for next Kinaba picnic

Wouldn't you like to be up to watch the sun come up over Lake Cootharaba?  Then hop into your kayak or canoe, or walk from Elanda Point, or hitch a ride with a local, and take your breakfast makings to the Kinaba Information Centre, and share a meal on the deck. 

Great change happened at working bee today

This wonderful group of enthusiastic workers gave the inside of the information centre a facelift today with a couple of coats of paint as the first step in re-awakening the room for hanging displays and getting it set up as a welcome to visitors area.

Finally made it

After 3 attempts to get to Kinaba in one piece, the working bee finally happened last Wednesday 25th February.

Kinaba Picnic Sunday 30th November

A small group of enthusiasts gathered at the Boreen Point Boat Ramp to head over to Kinaba for a breakfast picnic.

great working bee 16th October 2014

The latest working bee was held on Thursday 16th October and was a most productive day at you-know-where. 6 busy workers....painting Mission Brown, repairing tank pipe, roof flashing....(that's flashing from the roof!). Had a mention on Community radio via Mike Breid also - thanks Mike.

Latest working bee 24th July

A group of trusty volunteers paddled and motored up to Kinaba to continue the work there.

Working Bee 2nd June

One of the interesting aspects of the restoration of the Kinaba Information Centre is that the ceilings inside and out are asbestos. The paint is flaking off, and the ceilings need to be cleaned and re-painted.

We are required to ensure all asbestos is sealed before cleaning and painting, so Al Gymer, who is a registered asbestos inspector and removalist, and a Kinaba volunteer, has donated his time and expertise to inspect all the ceilings and seal them where needed.

Great Working Bee Wednesday 7th May

Our great team of volunteers had a productive workout at Kinaba on Wednesday 8am start with Ken, Telena, David, Laurie, Mike, Jan, Bob, Lesley and Ian, Sue and Charlie. Had a last minute supply of brushes, sandpaper, etc from our supportive Parks crew.

The team of painters started on posts and railings on all sides. Once they'd started there was no stopping.  The chippies completed more decking and joist work on the western side, then tackled repairs of the timber screen at the rainwater tank, including fresh paint.
