The Sippy Downs precinct, located near the junction of two major highways - the Bruce Highway and Sunshine Motorway - is a master-planned university town designed to include a town centre and business and technology park.

The Sippy Downs Town Centre, adjacent to the University of the Sunshine Coast and the Innovation Centre, includes a business and technology park and neighbouring residential area, which together comprise 17 parcels of land. The core town centre area will provide significant retail, commercial and community spaces to service the resident population and surrounding communities including the emerging community of Palmview located to the south.

New developments under construction in the precinct include a A$13 million major supermarket, a child care centre and additional residential development which will join an already completed medical centre and a A$4 million road upgrade.

Sippy Downs Business and Technology Park

The Sippy Downs Business and Technology Park is intended to support a broad range of science and technology-based businesses.

This site provides a competitive location for business and a catalyst for attracting knowledge-based employment opportunities to the Sunshine Coast. Youi Insurance is building its new global headquarters in the Business and Technology Park, employing more than 2,000 people. 

A range of business opportunities can be leveraged from the growth of businesses that are incubated in the neighbouring Innovation Centre. Locating in the Business and Technology Park also provides the added benefits of being in close proximity to the adjacent University of the Sunshine Coast and its faculties.
