Open for business!

Boomin’ Beerwah is all about small businesses supporting community

By Kirra Livingstone

A HEALTHY mix of businesses is vital for any thriving community and Beerwah is delivering in spades.
New businesses are throwing their hat in the ring, while established operators look to capitalise on a decade and more of new opportunities headed by the $5.5bn Direct Sunshine Coast Rail Line, in the lead-up to the 2032 Olympics and beyond.
Division 1 councillor, Jenny Broderick, said it is vital for Beerwah to have a plethora of businesses open to service the growing community.
“For a business district to succeed, we need a diverse range of businesses that cater for the needs across the area,” she said.
“Essential supplies, as well as those things that allow us to shop locally and keep our business here, supporting locals.
“What are we going to provide that drives people to come visit this incredible place we live in. Where they can ‘come and stay for a day’ and support our businesses while they’re here.”
Beerwah is moving with the times whether you are retiring or starting a new family. Masterpiece Dance is your one-stop shop for dance and exercise, with owner Sarah Kwarcianyi celebrating their 10th year in operation.
For a more relaxed active lifestyle, head on over to The Station Pilates, whose owner Monica Smith decided to open her fifth studio in Beerwah.
The booming town has recently seen the opening of its new health hub on Turner Street, which currently has a community cafe, childcare centre and doctor’s practice.
But more businesses will open in the coming months! If it’s a specialised service you’re after, Jason Sparks at Adjust to Life Chiropractic has just completed renovations, and Brett Winks and the team from Beerwah Active Physio have always been dedicated to supporting locals. There’s a range of new businesses that have just opened in Beerwah as well, which just adds to the town’s thriving business scene.
Jila Tahani from Glasshouse Veterinary Surgery recently took over the popular vet on Swan Street, and is passionate about providing the best possible care for your pets.
Tayla Bell from Totally Blonde Hair has recently opened her new salon in town, and has been very busy since opening six weeks ago. The town also has all the essential businesses you need to keep the cogs turning, including Amcal, Beerwah Dental and Bank of Queensland (BOQ).
Martin Kavanagh’s BOQ Beerwah stands alone as the only bank branch open in town and in the Glasshouse Country region, ensuring stability for those who want to speak to a helpful employee when banking.
But Beerwah is also home to some miscellaneous businesses too, like Aussie Carpets and Vinyl run by long-term owners Jo and Peter Sommerfield, and JTS 12 Volt, who are passionate about all things 4WD.
Kingston Horse Supplies, run by Renae Kingston, recently relocated from Landsborough to Beerwah.
