There was a steady stream of vehicles that travelled Kilcoy-Murgon Road to Diaper over the weekend.   The Element Festival was held at Landcruiser Mountain Park on 19th, 20th & 21st October 2018.  When searching about the festival, I was surprised and pleased to read that the organiser was supporting the local region by advising come for the weekend, stay for the week.  The rhetoric recorded “We strongly urge all festival attendees to support the local region which hosts the festival by visiting shops and tourist attraction in the surrounding towns.  “If possible, do your food, fuel or camping shopping locally before you head into the festival.  Elements Festival is to be a positive event for the local area and by supporting local businesses you can help us achieve this”.


It is pleasing to see the number of people attending the Equinox event at the Toogoolawah Rambler Skydiving site.  The event seems to be attracting many lovers of skydiving.   The event runs from 20 – 28 October 2018.

It is rewarding to witness community groups who make a difference to their local community, and the Coominya Public Hall Committee should be congratulated on the improvements that have been carried out to this important community asset.


Saturday 20th October was a day for fundraising at Kilcoy.  The Kilcoy Indoor Sports Centre hosted various activities and a free breakfast to raise funds for Breast Cancer, and Willie Wagtails Nest hosted the delightful Chappy Fundraising Dinner.
