to follow its progress!
Welcome to the website of the Beaudesert Community Arts and Information Centre. The aim of our centre is firstly to provide a showcase for local art and craft. Amongst our talented contributors are painters, sculptors, textile artists, woodworkers, writers, musicians, paper artists and food providores. As most of our contributors also man the centre from time to time, you will meet them when you come to visit.
We also provide information for visitors to the area, and it is our staff members' personal extensive knowledge which helps people who come here from all parts of the world to enjoy our special region.
The centre is also a meeting place for community groups.
On the website you'll find out what's happening in the area, from our calendar and from our "What's on" page. There'll also be reports on recent events.

On Tuesday 20th January, a morning tea meet and greet was hosted by Jon Krause, member for Beaudesert, at the Beaudesert Community Arts and Information Centre.

An added bit of fun was provided by Queenie & Quenton Quoll and their babies (of the endangered species - not real but toy ones). They are travelling around Queensland visiting information centres to see what attractions each area has. They had their photos taken with the Minister John Paul Langbroek and with MP Jon Krause.
