Creating the future village.

A Village for the Villagers, by the Villagers.

We’re a nimble and proud non-profit organisation focused on building a smarter more vibrant villager community environment for Main Beach. Our mission is to create a remarkable and resourceful Villager community, that adds something extra special to the Gold Coast experience.

Why a Village?

Simple – It’s real

Villagers rally around shared values, and the collective visions, and aspirations that rise up from them. It’s we villagers that build our village, a special place where everyone knows your name, and word of mouth has high value. This understanding is a critical and enduring distinction.

How we do this

Simply put, we help create the reality by giving the village visibility, voice, and momentum. We resurrected the Main Beach story – we give it oxygen to breathe and room to play, the opportunity to become the best it could possibly be. This is a strategy that applies equally to individuals, communities, and businesses. It adds another superior layer of value above and beyond the crowd, a beacon that attracts otherwise unseen opportunities and benefits.

Become part of our success equation

I think that is something worth getting behind, so jump on and join us, become a Villager or a friend of our Village initiative – be part of something special that moves the needle and makes a measurable difference.
