Book on the rise
Gayndah and Mundubbera launch: What do you think of the flood book?
COUNTRY music star Gina Jeffreys entertained hundreds at the Rise and Shine concert.
It was an event tailor-made for families, with plenty of free food, entertainment and good music.
Parents watched Gina while kids had their faces painted and played with circus acrobats.
Rise and Shine was also the first chance for residents to get their hands on the Central and North Burnett Times and BIEDO Flood Book.
The book chronicles the remarkable images and stories of last year's floods.
Kimberly Kirk said she could not wait to have a look at the book.
“When you were stuck on one side of the river, you don’t see all these other incredible things that happened,” she said.
The Mundubbera Flood Book launch brought in a raucous crowd, eager to take part in the ‘man’ auction.
Five local gentlemen went up for auction, each holding a special prize.
Myrtle Schiffke took home the major prize after placing the top bid for her 80-year-old husband Cecil.
