Strong Social Connections


Social connection is the experience of feeling close and connected to others. It involves feeling loved, cared for, and valued, and forms the basis of interpersonal relationships.

What we can do for you

We can any group that is formed or would like to form to do an activity that encourages social connection. We provide a meeting place for veterans associations, for groups undertaking a craft or other activity. We have two huts that can seat groups in theatre style (about 50) or around tables (20-30). We have a coffee shop to encourage connection and conversation. We are not in the game of owning the activity but will help groups find others, get grants for the purchase of equipment or just let groups use a room free of charge (for members of our community). We also conduct operations out of Townsville under the auspices of Operation FARMER ASSIST which are intended to bring a group of our community together and go out west to help our farmers, and in doing so form our own connections and teams.
