Last Thursday the Bundaberg Ag Tech Hub Opening Ceremony was held. The morning event commemorated the rebranding of the previous Bundaberg Regional Council Bargara office to a central hub for Bundaberg companies. The Honourable Mark Furner, MP and Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Minister for Rural Communities, was a special virtual guest. The event was a great success in bringing the environmental and sustainable agricultural industries of the Bundaberg region together and allowing the discussion on possibilities for the future.

NAIDOC Week Gala Ball
After some great events throughout the week, NAIDOC 2021 finished on a wonderful note with the Masquerade Gala Ball. An evening of inspiring speeches, captivating performances, and beautiful masks, this black-tie event has always been a stunning way to wrap up this important week. Despite NAIDOC 2021 having reached its conclusion, the values and ideals that it endorses should be realised and followed all year round.
