Raising money for Heart of Australia mobile truck clinics and the user group - this will be the must-attend social event on the calendar for the Balonne Shire. Our district has been severley affected by drought and we feel that hosting a community event is a great way to help lift the spirits and bring the community together whilst supporting a service that is cruicial to our region, the Heart of Australia.
The evening will be packed with entertainment, including Will Day band, fireworks and much more. Buses will be available to take people to and from town to keep everyone safe!

What's the deal with the Heart Bus?
The Heart of Australia, or Heart Bus, delivers fortnightly specialist medical investigation and treatment clinics to regional, rural and remote area communities across Queensland, including Dalby, Goondiwindi, Stanthorpe, St George, Charleville, Roma, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach, Hughenden, Charters Towers and Moranbah.
The customized road train – a specialist medical clinic-on-wheels – has travelled more than 150,000km on the road covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres.
Heart of Australia is breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote-area Australians access to services when and where they are needed most. Heart of Australia relies on fundraising and donations, and we're proud to be contributing to such an important service for our region. More info here: https://www.heartofaustralia.com/
