Welcome to the Mapleton and District Community Association (MADCA)

MADCA is a group of local volunteers who live and work in and around Mapleton and Flaxton, which is located on the Blackall Range. We are keen to engage with local groups, celebrate our rich history, and advocate for our diverse community.

Our monthly meetings provide a forum for ideas and issues that are influencing our community and we endeavour to provide timely and accurate updates on these issues to our members.

Mapleton and District is part of the Sunshine Coast Regional Council Division 10, and our local Councillor David Law attends our meetings. He provides updates and is happy to take any questions our members may have. 

MADCA has a number of sub-committees whose members represent MADCA. These committees work on issues such as the improving the streetscape of Mapleton; organising events in Mapleton such as the annual Light the Lights Christmas celebration; Disaster Management; and The Old School House (TOSH) garden group.

MADCA manages The Old School House at 17 Obi Obi Road. Currently a not-for-profit opportunity shop operates from these premises. At the back of the school is a covered sitting area which the public are welcome to use.


MADCA meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm at the Mapleton Bowls Club in Post Office Road Mapleton. There is no meeting in January.

Visitors are welcome and MADCA welcomes new members. Membership is free and should you like to become a member complete the Application Form and either bring it along to a meeting or post it The Secretary, PO Box 381, Mapleton 4560. We can also be reached by email:
