Welcome to the Fraser Coast - a region that combines location and lifestyle with economic growth and exciting potential.

THRIVE Business Expansion and Retention Program

As part of a renewed effort to facilitate small business expansion and retention throughout the region, Fraser Coast Opportunities are surveying local business owner / operators to gauge sentiment and better understand the needs and the future needs of the small business community.

Our Enterprise Team will be in the field conducting a short survey over the coming months and seeking to understand your business’ direction and goals.  We aim to refer you to professional advice, help solve immediate issues and offer opportunities to access other local subject matter experts.

Local owners and operators are encouraged to take part in the brief survey to allow us to analyse and better provide tailored small business development services throughout the region.  Should you want a specific visit from us contact us on enterprise@frasercoastopportunities.com.au or 4191 2600.
