G-G praises town vibe

Broome Advertiser - - News -

Com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions around Broome got the chance to rub shoul­ders with the Gover­nor-Gen­eral of Aus­tralia last Mon­day.

Sir Peter Cos­grove and his wife, Lynne Cos­grove, vis­ited Broome on Mon­day in a whirl­wind trip around town.

Sir Peter praised the work of lo­cal busi­nesses he vis­ited, in­clud­ing Notre Dame Univer­sity and Goolarri Me­dia, as well as lo­cal pro­grams such as the Kim­ber­ley Girl pro­gram.

“Broome is def­i­nitely a city on the move,” he said.

“There’s so much mod­ern de­vel­op­ment here.

“This place re­ally is a des­ti­na­tion to visit.”
