Did you hear? The Premier of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk came to visit us!


Annastacia Palaszczuk MP arrived with Bruce Saunders MP, Cameron Dick MP and Mark Furner MP to make an important announcement regarding the timber industry.

As you can imagine, we were very thrilled - cameras, reporters, a team from the government and security everywhere!
After spending some time looking over the mill and meeting our Team, the good news came.

The Palaszczuk Government announced an important new timber industry action plan to lock in hardwood supply in the Wide Bay Burnett region from 2024 to 2026.

This is a significant first step toward recognising the need for resource security and the long-term future of the many workers and timber companies directly involved in the South-East Queensland native hardwood industry.
