New Years Eve Free Family Fun

Gympie Regional Council’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, which will be held in Nelson Reserve in Gympie, will be jam packed with a wide range of free family-friendly entertainment and activities.

There will be an inflatable laser tag course, a rock climbing wall, an inflatable slide, and a jumping castle.

Mayor Mick Curran said that the range of entertainment and activities will mean there is something for everyone.

“We are excited for our community to come together to celebrate 2019 and welcome in 2020,” he said.

There will also be great free music from The Voice star Jack Vidgen, local artists Tennessee Lights and more, as well as a wide variety of food options.

It all starts at 5pm so bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy a great evening of live entertainment. The evening will conclude after the 9pm fireworks display. 

Gympie Regional Council is also pleased to support the Gympie Hammers Rugby Club who will use the New Year’s Eve event to raise money for the Rural Fire Services throughout the region. 

This event is proudly presented in association with the Gympie Hammers Rugby Club and supported by Bendigo Bank and GJ Gardner Homes Gympie.

This Sunday, I will have the honour of presenting at our annual Australia Day awards. 

This event will be held at the Gympie Civic Centre and acknowledges those members of our community who possess the personal attributes of community spirit, mateship, commitment and inclusiveness which this country and our community, strive to uphold. It’s truly humbling to see the work so many achieve, driven by their passion and volunteering of their own time.

At this ceremony, the Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Community Event of the Year, Cultural Award, Youth Cultural Award, Sports Administration Award and Youth Sports Award will be named. This important event on our community’s calendar is open to everyone. I would encourage you all to come along and help celebrate those who have made an impact on our region. We will also be welcoming a number of new Australian citizens to our region. 

I always find these events truly remarkable; not as mayor, but as a member of the community. It is extremely motivating to me to meet with those who constantly go above and beyond for causes greater than themselves. 

If an awards ceremony is not quite your speed, Gympie Regional Council is opening the pools around the region, free of charge. 

You can find out more information about this, including opening times, on the council website. 

Also this weekend at the Gympie Youth Precinct is the Australian Skateboarding League Queensland National Street Qualifier and the Skate Australia National Park Championships. 

This event is supported by Council and will offer competitors World Skate Rankings to help qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. 

It is events like these that help highlight our region, in this case potentially to the rest of the world.
