OUR PURPOSE IS TO BRING TOGETHER THE SOUTHBANK COMMUNITY, IMPROVE THE CULTURE AND LIVEABILITY OF OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD AND ALIGN LOCAL NEEDS WITH COUNCIL AND STATE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT.
Southbank3006 is a not-for-profit community organisation representing all diverse sectors of Southbank. We are passionate about building community, improving liveability, and advocating for improvement of local issues with council and state government.
To enhance the sense of community among residents.
To improve the liveability, safety, and quality of life in Southbank.
To bring together all residents living in Southbank—low-rise and high-rise in all sectors—as one voice to be heard on issues that are not receiving adequate attention.
To raise awareness of the diverse range of urban, economic, and social issues that impact Southbank residents.
To work with council and state government to ensure that the interests of Southbank residents are met and protected.
Southbank3006 is a group of residents committed to unifying Southbank. Together, we hope to tackle the unique social issues we face as a fast-growing neighborhood consisting mostly of high-rise apartment buildings. As locals, we are committed to making Southbank a safe, thriving neighbourhood that connects people across our diverse village spaces. The founding group includes:

Jannine’s goal for Southbank3006 is to create a community where residents and visitors alike feel safe, inspired, and delighted every day.
