Visions for a sustainable community

Events               Projects

Far South Future is a grassroots community alliance advocating sustainable development that is inclusive of the needs of residents, existing industries and the environment. We are tourism operators, local business owners, aquaculture employees and concerned local residents. We are not affiliated with any political party.


The Far South plays host to a number of community events throughout the year. Whether you’re a local or a curious interloper, we welcome you to join us for our regular or special events.

What’s on?


Far South Future supports projects that are in line with our vision for sustainable, inclusive development. Projects must enhance our strengths, engage transparently with the community, and have social license.

Far South Future advocates for sustainable development that is sensitive to the needs of residents, existing industries and the environment. We advocate for potential developers and elected leaders at all levels of government to be transparent and accountable, to engage meaningfully with the community and to genuinely seek community endorsement. We will continue to work to ensure that future projects bring real, long-term benefits to local people and the region for generations to come.
