Town Agents (Agency) – Sunshine Coast

Black Bear Legal accepts instructions as a town agent to act in civil matters from out-of-town lawyers that are unable to attend a Courthouse or Registry that is on the Sunshine Coast, personally.

Our office is just a 5 minute stroll to the Maroochydore Courthouse on Cornmeal Parade and can be attended at very short notice and on an urgent basis if needed.  The Maroochydore Courthouse is serviced by a Magistrates Court and is also the local District Court for the Sunshine Coast area.

Other locations and courthouses that are within our immediate vicinity that we service as town agents (without travel costs) include:

  • Nambour Magistrates Court, 156-168 Currie Street, Nambour.
  • Caloundra Magistrates Court, 3 Gregson Place, Caloundra.
  • Noosa Magistrates Court, Langura Street, Noosa.
  • Pomona Magistrates Court, 26 Red Street, Pomona.
  • Landsborough Magistrates Court, 12 Caloundra Street, Landsborough.

We can also service Gympie Magistrates Court and Caboolture Magistrates Court if instructed but do charge a travel fee for attendance to those courthouses as they are outside the Sunshine Coast district.
