Nov 2, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

Following North Burnett Regional Council’s successful application for funding through round one of the State Government’s ‘Works for Queensland’ (W4Q) program for regional councils to help stimulate growth and improve minor infrastructure across regional Queensland, Council received funding for the “Ban Ban Springs Signage’ project to welcome visitors to this historic site.

Mayor Rachel Chambers explained that the signage has been erected to celebrate the importance and improve awareness of the historical significance of the Ban Ban Springs site and encourage tourists to stop and explore the naturally beautiful area.

“The sign is based on designs provided by the Ban Ban Springs Environmental Management Plan Consultation Committee incorporating the Wakka Wakka People, and welcomes visitors to their traditional sacred meeting place,” Mayor Chambers said.

Community members are invited to attend the unveiling of the sign which will be held in conjunction with the Ban Ban Springs Environmental Management Committee meeting to be held on Monday, 06 November 2017, commencing 10:00am. Morning tea provided.

To assist with catering, please RSVP to Executive Support staff via phone on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC) or email executive.support@northburnett.qld.gov.au.

Mayor Rachel Chambers thanked the Queensland Government for the funding and acknowledged that the project will improve tourist and historical significance for the Ban Ban Springs area.
