Visit South Burnett Meet & Greet - Wondai
Local tourism organisation Visit South Burnett will be hosting their monthly Meet & Greet at the Wondai Colonial Motel on the Bunya Highway in Wondai's CBD from 6:00pm onwards tonight. The meeting will feature a tour of the motel, 2-minute "business bites" from South Burnett tourism operators and updates from VSB committee members. And with Spring school vacation starting tomorrow, forecasts of likely tourism trends over the coming few months will be shared as well. Nibbles and drinks will be provided and dinner is available to purchase from the motel's a-la-carte menu if you want to chow down. However, places are limited so an RSVP is essential. You can make one by phoning Melanie at VSB on 0455-494-741 by September 10.
Lisa Millar - Kilkivan
Popular ABC Breakfast host (and former Kilkivan girl) Lisa Millar who is about to launch her memoir Learning To Fly will be in Kilkivan today to help launch the town's new Community Bus. As part of the launch, Lisa will also be hosting a guided bus trip for 10 passengers which will take them past locations in and around Kilkivan that mean a lot to her. Tickets for the 40 minute bus trip - which includes a free glass of Aussie sparkling wine and the chance to win a copy of her new book - are $50 per head and all proceeds will be donated to the Kilkivan & District Community Care Association.
