Progress associations are local resident associations, owned and run by their members.  The Progress Association is the community’s direct link to all those institutions and organisations at Local, State and Commonwealth levels, which can impact on Burrum Heads’ future.

Any resident within the Burrum Heads area is entitled to and welcome to become a member of the Burrum Heads Progress Association.

The Burrum Heads Progress Association is a voluntary, not-for-profit community group, established in 1975.  The objectives of the Association are to promote and encourage the progress, development, advancement and welfare of the local community and to establish and maintain suitable premises for the convenience of the local community.

We regularly meet with residents on the 3rd Wednesday of the month and run the Burrum Heads Village Christmas Party, plus other events.

Our newsletter, the popular Burrum Heads Progress Association Newsletter, is distributed once a month to businesses in Burrum Heads and district.

Burrum Heads is a great place to come, relax, enjoy the scenery and to take pleasure in the peace, tranquility and beauty of life.

Visitors - enjoy your stay - return home safely.



 Residents and visitors alike flocked to the Christmas Party to enjoy an afternoon of fun and entertainment. The tantalizing aroma of BBQ sausages and sizzling onions, deftly prepared and cooked by volunteers from Hervey Bay Rotary Club, wafted across the across the crowd.

 Children enjoyed a variety of activities which were reflected in the laughter and wide smiles on small faces. The waterslide, jumping castle and inflated "ball and dart board" sure kept children busy.

 A couple of friendly velociraptors found their way from 'Jurrasic park' and into our Village Party, much to the delight of the children who wanted to 'pat' them.

Santa and his helpers arrived on their magnificent bikes and Santa handed sweets to the children, and some were lucky enough to have their photos taken with Santa.

During the proceedings party goers were entertained by two wonderful singers who kept us all singing and bopping to their well known tunes.  Some folk even danced some of the afternoon away - rock 'n roll, and a little line dancing to Nut Bush - City Limits.

Funds raised through raffles will be sent to Drought Angels - to assist Farmers in need.

Special thanks to Cr Rolf Light for sponsorship of the event, Brad Dyson, Elders, as emcee, Howard Information Centre for their support and Rotary, Hervey Bay volunteers who looked after the BBQ and kept the food coming all afternoon. We salute you!
