The celebrations included the opening of the Sunshine Coast’s first David Jones, H&M, Sephora, Lululemon and Sheike stores, as well as a new Big W, Kathmandu, JB Hi-fi, MECCA, Seed Heritage, Endota Spa and Baku, to name but a few.

The new stores took Sunshine Plaza’s total retailer count to 345 over 107,000sqm and elevated the Centre to be the first super-regional shopping centre north of Brisbane.

The redevelopment, which commenced construction in August 2016, is estimated to have generated close to 2,900 jobs over the past two-and-a-half years, and a further 2,300 retail jobs are expected to be created.

The only way to truly know what you’re getting is to see and feel it for real.

Apollo 11 Vmax Screening at Maroochydore

First man on the Moon

A 90-minute historic movie will be screened from tomorrow at the Event Cinema at Maroochydore Sunshine Plaza.  Directed by Todd Douglas Miller, it is, in reality, a cinematic event that has been in the making for the past 50 years.  Apparently, old 65mm movie film has been unearthed from the bowels of NASA’s archives, along with 11,000 hours of recorded audio. 

The movie is titled simply Apollo 11.  It tells the story of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing mission from the perspective of the astronauts themselves and the team of mission controllers in Houston Texas, along with the millions of observers on earth.  Screened in the large screen VMax Cinema in Maroochydore, patrons can experience first hand those five momentous days when astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins left the safety of Earth to orbit and land upon the surface of the moon and return safely again to Earth.
