Burnett Regional Council
was formed from the merger of the
former Kingaroy, Nanango, Wondai and Murgon Shire Councils in March 2008
and is now the local government that covers the South Burnett.
Kingaroy Shire Council had always been a loyal supporter of Wine & Food
In The Park and we're delighted that the SBRC has been continuing this tradition
ever since it was formed.
Our Council helps us with many important aspects of the Festival -
anything from street banners and public health issues to Festival set-up
and knock-down, refuse removal and grounds cleaning. And the Council's
Visitor Information Centres (in Blackbutt, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai
and Murgon) provide equally invaluable assistance to the many visitors who
come to the South Burnett during the Festival .
is our region's daily online newspaper. It was originally established as
the South Burnett's web portal by the former Kingaroy, Nanango, Wondai, Murgon,
Rosalie and Kilkivan Shire Councils in 1999 and over the succeeding 13 years
grew to become the largest rural web portal
in Queensland with an
annual audience in excess of 700,000 visitors
In April 2012, southburnett.com.au moved to a daily newspaper format. It
now provides live daily news coverage of the region every Monday to Friday,
as well as breaking news reports on weekends when significant events occur
(such as fires or floods). It also provides the South Burnett's most
comprehensive Daily Events Calendar and the region's online business directory.to
an audience that now exceeds 2 million visitors annually.
This year - as they have every year since 2001 - southburnett.com.au have
donated this web site and its associated hosting costs to the Festival, as
well as provided us with valuable publicity and assistance.
