It’s lit­tle places that make up this big coun­try

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - Emily Smith

“WHAT are the must-see places in Aus­tralia?”

I spent a fair chunk of the sum­mer an­swer­ing this ques­tion from fel­low trav­ellers I met in south-east Asia.

Many of them were shortly head­ing south to tackle the sprawl­ing land­scape of our coun­try and were feel­ing fairly in­tim­i­dated.

I ex­plained to them that it’s not the cap­i­tal cities, but the lit­tle places in be­tween that cause so many to fall in love with Aus­tralia.

Luck­ily for me, I’m not a trav­eller any­more.

I’ve got all the time in the world to hear about ev­ery­one and ev­ery­thing that goes on in this town.

So come on into my of­fice on the main street, or give me a call.

I’d love to hear from all of you.
