New websites for Mount Pleasant and Cotton Tree communities
Mount Pleasant is a small country town just 55 kilometres from Adelaide, with rolling hills, stone walls and wineries on its doorstep. It is situated near the Murraylands and Adelaide Hills, and is a gateway to the Barossa.
The Mount Pleasant community website at mountpleasant.sa.au is the initiative of the Mount Pleasant Soldiers Memorial Hall and Main Street Committee (a Committee of The Barossa Council). They aim to provide a place for locals and tourists to find up-to-date information on events, groups, services and businesses of the district, as well as learn about the history of the area. The website will include a page for the Mount Pleasant District History Room.
Local community groups have an opportunity to showcase their aims, events and information to the wider community, with businesses encouraged to participate. There are links to the various tourist attractions in Mount Pleasant and nearby.
Cotton Tree is a neighbourhood located in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, and is a popular destination for holiday makers. The community website at cottontree.qld.au provides plenty of information on things to see and do, and local news and history.
With 37 food outlets, from takeaways to casual dining, there is something for everyone's taste and budget in Cotton Tree.
The famous Cotton Tree caravan park is the oldest camping ground in Queensland, with the first camp established by the Salvation Army in 1896. The caravan park was heritage listed by the Queensland State Government in 2009.
