“Queensland Fills You Up!” Max (12) tells Cr Cheryl Gaedtke

Category : General News

After attending the Brisbane Valley Heritage Trail committee meeting held at the Yarraman Heritage Centre, on Thursday 5th July, Cr Cheryl Gaedtke called in to have lunch at the Bunya Nut Café at Blackbutt.  It was here that a hungry family was enjoying their lunch and it was obvious that the family were enjoying some special school holiday activities.

The family were holidaying in Queensland and came specifically to our part of the state to ride the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.  Dad, Tony Richards was born in Esk 51 years ago and now resides in Warragul, Victoria with his wife Silvia, son Max (12) and twins Chris and Samantha (9).  The family rode from Esk to Fernvale the previous day and had a great time.  After travelling by car to Yarraman, the family have plans to ride from Yarraman through to Esk.  If necessary the support crew of Mum, Silvia will pick up the twins at Moore, whilst Dad and Max attempt to travel through to Esk.

Cr Gaedtke asked Tony “What was the best part of the trail so far?”  Tony was quick to answer “the best part is the small country towns with their unique characters and whom they have met, great food and the spots to visit along the trail.  Max has his own philosophy about his experience so far and was eager to share that “Queensland Fills You Up!”.

Warragul, Victoria has a population of 14276 (2016 census) and is an Aboriginal word meaning Wild Dog and is located 102 kilometres east-southeast of Melbourne.

Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke for a strong Somerset Region
Over the past three days, I met Mayors, Councillors, Council staff from all states and territories of our great country.Equality with sharing the fiscal revenue pie with other levels of government is strongly supported by research and hard cold stats. Local Government and its services must be recognised and the associated increase in funding applied.The housing crisis, natural disaster management and future planning, climate change, energy resources and future needs, constitutional recognition of First Nations peoples, democracy today, the Ukraine war, were only some of the thought provoking presentations. Many discussions took place about important matters and what Local Gov needs to do to assist.I was completely captivated by Stan Grant and his keynote address around global democracy. Thought provoking!! I will definitely be rewatching the video of this presentation.The Ukraine's Ambassador, Vasyl Myroshnychenko's address brought tears to our eyes. A special (and supportive) motion about this horrific conflict was raised and passed by ALGA. Australian councils have shown their support for Ukraine today, unanimously passing a motion of peace-seeking solidarity at the 2022 National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government in Canberra. ...
