Gympie’s annual signature event – the Gympie Music Muster is on this weekend at the Amamoor Creek State Forest.
 
Now in its 36th year, this event which started as a charity fundraiser has now grown into one of the best regional music festivals in the country with performances from more than 100 artists, including the biggest names in country music. And it is the biggest event that Gympie is known for. 
 
Not only is the festival a great weekend of entertainment, but it also provides a huge boost to our region with proceeds from the Muster going back into the local community and various charities.

Congratulations to the Gympie Muster Board and the Apex Club of Gympie who do a fantastic job coordinating this massive event which injects more than $6 million into our local economy.
 
It is a huge drawcard for our region with visitors able to experience our country hospitality, and local businesses benefitting from the thousands of people that flock to the area.
 
We support the Gympie Music Muster for all these reasons plus it’s a great opportunity to kick back with your mates or family, and enjoy the fun-loving music and atmosphere. 
 
I’ll be there with boots on…

 

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor

Upgrade to Langton and Hall Roads

Summary

Council has allocated funding in the 2016/17 financial year to upgrade Langton and Hall Roads to the standard of industrial roads.

Works proposed

The project will upgrade the full length of Langton Road and Hall Road between the highway and the north coast rail line.

The work will include:

  • road pavement widening, areas of pavement reconstruction, new sections of kerb and channel and asphalt surfacing;
  • improvements to the intersections of Eldorado Road/Hall Road and Langton Road/Hall Road;
  • stormwater drainage upgrades; and
  • improvements to property accesses.

Traffic management

During construction property accesses may be affected for short durations. The construction contractor will contact business operators to discuss timing for access or parking if work is likely to impact entrances.

Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists. Council appreciates your patience during the works.

Timing

Works are expected to be completed by end of August, depending on weather and other factors.
