Caboolture Hospital Children’s Fairy Garden
This garden came about in 2011 after it was felt there was a need for an area where patients and their families could go to chill out away from the wards. Rotary Caboolture got behind the construction of the Fairy Garden and still maintain it on a regular basis.
All Abilities Playspace
The All Abilities Playspace has been created at the Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre (CREEC) at Burpengary. Rotary Caboolture was instrumental in getting this project started as there was a need for a play area for children of all ages and abilities. The club has purchased equipment for the playspace and is also helping with the landscaping by the planting of trees and shrubs.

Supurunda Water Supply Project in PNG
This project is located in Papua New Guinea’s Eastern Highlands province and is a water supply project that utilises the spring-fed Supurunda water source.
Together with 10 adjacent villages, there is a population of around 3,000 people to service. Currently, villagers have to trek long distances from their homes to collect water for up to 2 hours in the morning and again in the evening.
The project is to construct a small artisan weir in front of the Supurunda water source (spring) to catch water. This will then be piped approximately 7 km through a network of pipes and tanks to taps at schools, hospitals and clinics and public access points.
Wonderful news just in, the project is now finished!
