Coast launches bid to secure Google Australia's new HQ

THE Sunshine Coast could become home to Google Australia's new headquarters.

Sun Central CEO John Knaggs has today confirmed to Brisbane Times that the company had met with Google Australia about basing its headquarters in the new Maroochydore CBD.

Acting NSW Premier John Barilaro said on Wednesday Google should not see the decision as a rejection, and the government hoped the tech giant would still end up at the Eveleigh site near Redfern station.
