About Us

Community Cubed is a proud initiative of The Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre

The Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre's vision is to build a strong, cohesive and healthy community through the development of successful programs, activities and services.

The Community Cubed project is an innovative concept that is designed to assist individuals to enhance themselves through self-employment and developing business skills for the modern world. Starting out in business can be a huge investment and unfortunately approximately 60% of businesses fail in their first three years. Our initiative to create a retail and innovation hub located in the high-profile retail space of Stockland Hervey Bay, allows business owners and start-ups to take the opportunity to test their products or services for a small investment starting at $25 per week.

The project is designed to

  • Allow business owners to develop and test their ideas to the retail market before they commit to long-term leases that may not be a viable business
  • Provide start-ups a place to promote products every day of the week in a regular stockist environment
  • Provide business mentoring and support from successful business owners and managers
  • Promote the regions creativity, innovation and local talent
2020 has thrown a curve ball that no one saw coming, and this has seen many small business owners struggle to deal with how their business will continue. The Community Cubed enterprise is evolving to continue to provide support to local business particularly during this tough time. Our e-hub provides ongoing support and collaboration opportunities for business owners and members of Community Cubed delivered through workshops and business mentoring. 


Over the coming weeks we will be launching Fraser Coast's first Online Marketplace to help product and service based business to go digital sell online. We are so excited to bring this new initiative to the Fraser Coast community as we know it will help many business to retain staff and livelihoods and help our local economy by encouraging others to buy local. Please help us share this exciting opportunity to friends, family and business owners and share our marketplace blog through your social media channels.
