We had three big announcements last week!

Last Thursday, we welcomed Senator Bridget McKenzie to Maryborough where she announced that Central Goldfields Shire would share in $1.8 million to help our older residents to be more active and engage in physical activity.

This was a very welcome announcement and it is a timely reminder for all of us, not just our senior community members that we need to stay healthy and keep active.

Also on Thursday we officially launched our Maryborough and Surrounds Visitor Guide and 2019 Central Goldfields Art Gallery Exhibition Program.

The Visitor Guide is our most important tourism publication and it will soon be distributed to 25,000 visitor centres across the state.

This booklet will be one of the main drivers for tourism but it is up to all of us to be advocates for our Shire.

People will visit our region, not just because they read about it but because they have heard positive things from other people.

And lastly, our Art Gallery Exhibition Program outlines all of the displays coming to the local Gallery this year.

We have some really exciting and inspiring exhibitions coming up, including one from renowned artist Deborah Halpern and local artists.

One of the local exhibitionists is Indigenous artist Georgia Macguire who is curating Ngardang Girri Mimini (Mother Aunty Sister Daughter) and is believed to be the first of its kind in Australia.

For copies of the Visitor Guide be sure to visit the Central Goldfields Visitor Information Centre or the Central Goldfields Art Gallery.
