WELCOME to Sustainable Coffee Bay!

Sustainable Coffee Bay is a Coffee Shack Backpackers initiative.  Coffee Shack had been informally running community up-liftment and educational projects since 2002. Initially these projects were managed by the Coffee Shack staff, with funding provided by Coffee Shack and its generous guests. As the projects grew in number and size it was decided that Sustainable Coffee Bay (SCB) should be formed to manage the community projects and raise the necessary funds. Sustainable Coffee Bay is a registered non-profit organization that also has Public Benefit Organisation status.  We work with the local communities of the greater Coffee Bay area to improve their lives through education and community development initiatives.

 Our  Vision

Our vision is a motivated and cohesive rural community involvement with learning opportunities to take control of their future.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop projects and activities which are vital to the wellbeing and evolvement of our community and natural environment. Education is one of the chief objectives of Sustainable Coffee Bay, however, the organisation aims to empower the whole community, encouraging self-determination and self-worth throughout and thus sustainability for the future.
