South Burnett CTC - Working For Our Community
Nanango Country Markets
The Nanango Show Society will be holding their regular monthly Country Markets at the Nanango Showgrounds in Cairns Street from 6:00am to around 12:00 noon today.

Higher Distracted Driving Penalties Start Today
New penalties for drivers illegally using mobile devices behind the wheel come into force today. From now on, drivers caught using mobile devices face a $1000 fine and the loss of 4 demerit points; and if they're caught for the same offence within 12 months, double demerit points (ie licence suspension). The new laws are the toughest in Australia and have been introduced after distracted drivers caused 33 deaths and led to almost 1400 hospitalisations in Queensland in 2018.
