  • PRIME MINISTER: Well firstly, let me say how heartbroken we all are by the terrible accident at Dreamworld yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were killed in that shocking accident. Three of the four people who died yesterday were members of the Australian Public Service and the APS and their community is in mourning with them.

  • The Commonwealth Government will invest $8 million to rebuild the Waltzing Matilda Centre, after a fire destroyed part of the building last year.

  • The Commonwealth Government is delivering critical telecommunications infrastructure to connect some of the most remote and iconic parts of regional Queensland.
