Healthy Towns was absolutely delighted to be part of the third Nambour Together event held in Quota Memorial Park, Nambour.

What is Nambour Together all about?

The overall aim of Nambour Together is about the community coming together and having fun! Everyone who attending did just that, there was live Music, Multicultural Food, and a Speakers tent. Healthy Towns talked to community groups about their projects and informed them about the opportunity to win funding for their community group. If you would like the opportunity to win click here.

As a result of the success of Nambour Together, Healthy Towns made great connections and cannot wait to be part of it all next year!

The meaning behind our logo

The Healthy Towns logo represents our passion for happiness, communication and prosperity.

The symbol is made up of two house icons, that are positioned along an abstract road depicting a town scape. The shape of the abstract road also symbolises a smile for happiness. The road markings are an indigenous style dot pattern that represents a combined community culture. The tree symbolises a connection to nature, while the yellow markings above the home icon represents a sun flare and portrays the town succeeding in health and happiness.

The Healthy Towns colours also have significant meaning as the colour orange relates to friendship and social communication, whilst turquoise presents as a friendly and happy colour. Together these colours associate meanings of energy, serenity, wholeness, friendship, love and joy. Combined, the uplifting and vibrant colours along with the uniquely created icon, symbolise happiness, communication and prosperity.
