Wellness

Wellness of a Community reflects the Strength of the Individual,  their Resilience to Bounce Back and the Support Community Members give each other.

In Rural and Remote Communities, individuals are valued and people tend to look out for each other.

However, it is important to have access to resources to support people. Below a list of contacts. 
Please advise if you are aware of contacts not on this list. Or if the contacts no longer offer support services.

In 2005, the concept of small town websites helped address the need in our rural communities for accessible cost effective online local promotion of who we are, when our events are happening, and of the employment and training opportunities available.

Hello, my name is Liz Hill. I grew up along the Nebine creek to the east of Cunnamaulla, an ex-Bollon bush nurse, ex-community co ordinator.  Living on a farm in the Nindigully district gives me authentic experience, insight and connections to promote our region through these websites. I am passionate about rural Australia and love being able to share information with people of the South West QLD communities.
