Well if the first evening event of The Rangebow Festival is anything to go by, it’s going to exceed everyone’s wildest expectations.

Last night, at Flaxton Gardens, Aunty Dale Chapman of My Dilly Bag took us through Forage.Fire.Feast - a truly amazing First Nations culinary experience. Thank you! 🙏🏻 The food was simply incredible!

There’s still tickets left to some of the other Festival events as well as plenty of free activities so jump on the Festival website and head to the Blackall Range over the next three days!

Thank you to the hundreds of residents from Upper Caboolture, Moorina, Rocksberg and beyond that turned up to yesterday’s information session on Stage 2 of the Bruce Highway Western Alternative.

I know it’s a traumatic and uncertain time for many, I know there are flaws in how the route identification is progressed and how that is communicated. So thank you for remaining respectful in your discussions with the departmental representatives.

As I shared with many of you, I am here to assist as we progress through to “gazettal” of the preferred route by the end of the year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at Glass.House@parliament.qld.gov.au or on 5318 8100.

“Coffee with a Copper” ☕️ 👮 great to catch up with Sgt Danny Vojvodic of the Woodford Police today…and support a local business to boot (thanks Grind & Graze Co.). Today the discussion centred on the D’Aguilar Highway and Mt Mee Road. But Sgt Vojvodic and I catch up pretty regularly so if there’s ever anything you’d like us to talk about please let me know. ...
