  • Malanda Tropical Retreat- A new project for 2017

    Located on a 72-hectare property at Jaggan, Malanda Tropical Retreat is a new project being launched by the Lions Club of Malanda. The project aims to provide eligible families of a disabled, seriously ill or terminally ill child with a holiday on the Atherton Tablelands. The club has recently opened the project to partnering Lions Clubs within Australia for expressions of interest for families of need within their regions.
    In addition to the Lions Club of Malanda providing up to 10 days stay at the fully accessible and modern 4 bedroom accommodation, families will also have access to local day trips organised by Lions Club members. Access to the Retreat Vehicle, a modern mini-bus, will also be provided to guests during their stay.
    The Lions Club of Malanda are excited at the launch of this new project and are looking forward to exploring our beautiful Atherton Tablelands with their future guests

  • A PLAYGOUND SHADE COVER

    A NEW SHADY SPOT IN MALANDA

    A major improvement to the children’s playground is complete.

    During a prolonged period of hot weather IN 2013 Malanda Lions identified a need for a shade shelter over the new playground equipment in Eacham Place opposite the Majestic Theatre,

    With Tablelands Regional Council’s blessing Malanda Lions and Malanda Lioness financed, designed and constructed a suitable cover to enable the playground to be enjoyed at all times by the children of the community. It has been a major project for both clubs.

    In a simple ceremony on Saturday 6th September at 11.00am, the shade shelter will be officially handed over to Deputy Mayor Cr Geoff Stocker on behalf of the TRC.

    Malanda Lions and Lioness members invite the community (and especially the children) to a free sausage sizzle following the handover, from 11.00am to 1.00pm.

    All welcome.
