Congratulations to our woodchoppers and high school students who competed at the (Brisbane) Royal National Agricultural Show.  The experience and friendships made will stand you all in good stead. Gerald William Youles was awarded the 2022 350mm Australian Underhand Championship.  Mum and Daughter competitors, Renee and Millie Retschlag came away from the EKKA with third and fourth in the final of the women’s underhand woodchopping championship.  Well done to all.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
