Queensland Day is nearly here and Whitsunday Regional Council is going to put on a celebration!
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that Tuesday, 6 June, will mark Queensland’s 158th birthday and will give the Whitsunday Region a chance to come together and celebrate this great state.
“This year with sponsorship from the Queensland Government, Council will be holding free community barbeques in towns across the region,” Mayor Willcox said.
“Local community groups are lending a hand and cooking the barbeque and we have a range of local talent providing entertainment,” he said.
“There are many people still doing it tough since Cyclone Debbie and these events will provide another opportunity for our residents to come together, bring their families, relax and have a good time.”
“After all, that’s what being a Queenslander is about.”
