Beef City gets early nod for Tidy Town

ROCKHAMPTON was Australia’s first Tidy Town finalist to be inspected and yesterday judge Dick Olesinski said there was no other place like the Beef Capital.

Mr Olesinski flew up from Adelaide. Not only was he impressed with the Beef Capital’s cleanliness, but he admired its uniqueness and environmentally friendly attitude.

We are against Beechworth in Victoria and Lockhart in New South Wales, while NT and other state winners will be announced later this year, and a national winner in April.

“Rockhampton had the opportunity to lead other towns across Australia, and I am impressed with the work of the Rockhampton Regional Council and the community,” Mr Olesinski said.

Seeing the Botanic Gardens for the first time, he said our climate plan was cutting-edge and he was impressed with the Reef Guardian school program and city waste and litter strategy.
