At Countryside Noosa Realty we’re proud to call ourselves locals. We’ve been based in Cooroy for 20 years now and love to be involved in the community. Our staff play for the team, sometimes it’s giving aid and other times it’s because it feels good and it’s the right thing to do! So, whether that’s supporting local sports teams, helping with aid centres, practising our green thumb with the people of Noosa Permaculture or always buying local – you can find Countryside Noosa Realty behind the scenes in many of the community activities and behind the businesses which make up our Noosa Hinterland home.
So, as we encroach on our 20th anniversary in business we thought we would take the opportunity to look at some of the ventures we support and give you an overview of the fantastic services they provide for Cooroy.
What’s a home without a garden? Permaculture Noosa has inspired us with their tireless community work and their perseverance towards greening, rewilding and building community resistance both ecologically and culturally in Cooroy. We are thrilled to be growing alongside Permaculture Noosa. We see initiatives such as Permaculture Noosa, helping to strengthen our community as well as providing us with an opportunity to give something back. Naturally, we’re looking forward to offering our help, digging in the dirt and flourishing alongside them.

Coolum Football Club
Coolum Football Club was established in 1975. Today it’s recognised as one of the largest community sporting organisations in the Coolum. The club is renowned for its pride, passion and camaraderie. When it came to supporting the Dolphins it was a no-brainer especially when our Sales Consultant, Eliot Krause is on the team. Here’s what he had to say.
I play for Coolum Football Club ( The Dolphins ) in the under 23’s division. I have been at this club for 13 years and absolutely love the culture and the community – there is a big emphasis on grassroots football which allows our club to develop and produce great young players. “Up the fins”.

Cooroy – Eumundi Cougars Cricket Club
When asked if we would be eager to support the Cooroy-Eumundi Cricket club we knew we would because hey? It’s cricket! A great Australian pastime that helps to weave in some community magic into our small town. We know the local team and play for them so in the summer when the grass is dry and the sun bears down you can find us on the sidelines or having a go, cheering the ‘Cougars’ on.
