The Drought Continues
The Granite Belt is still in the grip of this relentless dry... and we still need your help. Residents are struggling and are grateful for whatever we can provide for them.
Currently we are offering water vouchers, and are in the final stages of creating a community hub (A LADIES SHED) where social networking and mental health and well being will be the focus.

We are registered with the Australian Non Profit Charities Commission, and the Qld Office Fair Trading. Your donation is tax deductible. Your donation will be used for the purchase of water vouchers, fodder vouchers, grocery vouchers, and other needs as requested by residents.
Over 11500 residents, award winning wines, iconic events, fresh produce, national parks, fine wool production & beef production, a favourite getaway destination especially during the autumn and winter months
The region is experiencing the worst drought for over 120 years.
The dams are dry, the creek beds are rocky, the feed is gone, no crops, no jobs, no income, no vintage, water is scarce, families are leaving. Tearing apart, the fabric of the region that is widely know for its wines, fresh produce, major tourism events, national parks and wildlife.
