A valued part of The Smith Family

Maroochydore VIEW Club


Maroochydore VIEW Club was formed in 2001.  Currently, the Club sponsors eight Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.  Maroochydore VIEW Club members share fun and friendship over a beautiful lunch. A variety of informative and interesting guest speakers entertain and inspire us at our meetings. At each lunch there are raffle and lucky door prizes, as well as a book stall.

Each month we also enjoy a social outing.  These social occasions are a great way to make friends, particularly if you are new to the Sunshine Coast.  We also have a monthly coffee morning and book clubs.

A highlight of each year is our Walk With a VIEW, through which we raise funds for the Learning for Life program through obtaining sponsors. 

Why don’t you come along and see what our VIEW Club is all about?  We always look forward to welcoming new members.  Visit our Facebook page.

Guest Speaker for Meeting on Friday 28th September 2018            

Professor Roland Sussex OAM—the bloke to listen to if you have even the hint of interest in the English language

Professor Roly Sussex and his knowledge of the English language would be well known to many ABC Radio listeners who share his love of language.  In addition to his talk-back program on language and linguistics, Roly writes a weekly column for the 'Courier Mail'.

What is happening to the English language and how is it used in Australia?  Is our language becoming too Americanised?

September Luncheon at Maroochydore RSL







17th Birthday Celebration

On 24th August 2018 members, many guests and visitors from other VIEW clubs enjoyed our "Hot August Night" 17th birthday celebration, with wonderful entertainment provided by professional entertainer Paul McKenna.  Paul, who very generously donated his time, sang many old favourites, and we all sang along and danced to his music.

Great dancing!

July 2018 Luncheon

At our July luncheon we were captivated by an awe inspiring talk by Claude Tranchant, intrepid trekker and author of 'Boots to Bliss'.  Claude told of her incredible journey and transformation after she walked nearly 2500 km alone for 100 days through France and Spain at the age of 64.


Above:  President Lynda, together with Past National Vice President Bub, hard-working member Ruth and new member Lesley.  Bub presented Ruth with her 10 year badge and Lesley with her new VIEW Club badge.

We held our annual Walk With a VIEW on Friday 13th July when members, friends and VIEW members from other local clubs joined us for the delightful 5 km walk in glorious sunshine from Alexandra Headland Surf Club to Mooloolaba Surf Club and return.  After the walk we enjoyed a delicious morning tea of scones, jam and cream.  Thank you to Alex Surf Club for once again providing our morning tea. 

Well done to the walkers and their sponsors for raising further funds towardsThe Smith Family Learning for Life program.
