Minister’s Welcome Message

Message from the Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development

The Hon Kate Jones MP

Welcome to the Sunshine Coast for the 2020 Noosa Festival of Surfing.

This longboard surfing competition, held at Noosa’s iconic beaches, will for the second year offer four days of amateur competition with the addition of four days’ professional competition in the World Surf League Noosa Longboard Open. It will also feature the usual live entertainment, exhibitions and the well-known dog surfing competition.

The Queensland Government supports events because they attract visitors to the region which supports jobs in the local tourism sector.  This event is just one of the many events supported in 2020 which are worth over $880 million to Queensland’s economy.

If you’re visiting the Sunshine Coast, I encourage you to explore more of what the region offers, from the hinterland to its golden beaches.

The Hon Kate Jones MP

Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development
