Tech workers and digital entrepreneurs are being drawn to Noosa’s enviable lifestyle with its surfing beaches, popular national park and warm climate.

Noosa Council is supporting this fledging industry with the creation of The Peregian Beach Digital Hub, due to open in May and now available for tenancy.

Noosa's digital talent pool is growing rapidly, making it a more feasible base for technology entrepreneurs that are looking to employ local software developers, designers and other technologists. 

Chris Boden, former Lonely Planet innovation head and founder of CreateNoosa said: “I moved to Noosa with my family from Silicon Valley. Noosa’s edge is undoubtedly the unparalleled lifestyle it offers tech workers and entrepreneurs”.

Chris, director of the new Digital Hub, will provide entrepreneurial support to the Hub’s tenants.

“The Peregian Beach Digital Hub is an important piece of infrastructure that will further Council’s support of this growing industry.

The Hub offers modern, flexible space designed to house a mix of established and emerging technology companies with their own private office spaces, as well as individual technology entrepreneurs in a co-working environment.

The Hub will host mentoring and skills development programs help build Noosa's technology talent and foster a culture of collaboration and collegial support.

The Hub’s location at Peregian Beach, only 20 minutes from the soon-to-be-upgraded Sunshine Coast Airport, is a drawcard with its stunning surf beach, thriving village square, popular restaurants, coffee shops and a supermarket.

Companies or individuals who are interested in their own discrete office space, or who prefer a shared environment, are encouraged to visit  where information about tenancy is available.

The Digital Hub is part of Council’s Local Economic Plan which seeks to diversify the economy.

Noosa Council, together with local partners has been providing support to the sector over a number of years by hosting events for technologists, digital creatives and investors.
