TRC endorses invitation-only community Australia Day activities

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) today (January 18, 2022) endorsed invitation-only award presentations as the preferred option for the Region’s 2022 community Australia Day celebrations.

TRC Australia Day coordinating committee chair and Deputy Mayor Cr Geoff McDonald said the decision allowed the Region’s local Australia Day organising committees to proceed with their events in line with current Queensland Health directives or postpone community functions.

Cr McDonald said Council’s decision considered current health guidance indicating the peak of the Omicron strain of the Coronavirus was expected in coming weeks.

“Council’s primary concern is to host safe community Australia Day events across the Region,” Cr McDonald said.
