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.


As we say goodbye to last year and move into a new year and another decade, along with it comes some resolutions from the BHPA executive.

We have some wonderfully generous people in the community who have given years of membership and are always there to volunteer on committees for events, large or small. To them is owed a heartfelt vote of thanks for past and continuing contributions. However, as most people realise - whether in commercial business or voluntary organisations, in order to maintain smooth, consistent and successful operations that, in our case, benefit the community in general, BHPA needs to have other volunteers to “learn the ropes” and back-up and assist activities.

This enables the long-serving volunteers to take time to perhaps attend to personal, health or holiday commitments without feeling they are leaving a vacuum in their absence.
No one can be expected to make themselves available 100% of the time, so let us all think how we might be able to maintain the high standard set by these volunteers - and lend a hand as an “under study” and be a “reserve assistant” who may be called upon to help periodically.
Remember! Volunteering can be fun!
Help us to help you!

Our Christmas Party was well attended and there were plenty of activities which proved to be very popular for the children.

Santa (Richard T.) and his helper (Jim J.) were busy looking after the gifts for the children.

Christmas Party organiser, Douglas W., did a great job and was seen chatting during the afternoon with a very happy Councillor, Rolf Light. As always, big vote of thanks goes to all of the volunteers who made the event such a wonderful success.

What great timing it was - to have the new pontoon finished in time for Christmas celebrations. Now both commercial and local pleasure craft can avail themselves of the pontoon near the Ross Street boat ramp.
