The inaugural Welcome to the Fraser Coast Dinner went down a treat, with more than 60 people making new connections while enjoying delicious food prepared by The Wandering Teapot Social Enterprise.

New Fraser Coast residents, many of whom had moved from overseas, came together at the Hervey Bay Community Centre for food, conversation and an introduction to the region.

Many thanks to Workforce Australia and Regional Development Australia Wide Bay Burnett for sponsoring and partnering with us on this event.

Thank you also to Fraser Coast mayor, George Seymour, for opening the event.

We hope this is just the first of many Welcome to the Fraser Coast events to come, so stay tuned for more details!
