Partying for a playground this Australia Day

IF YOU want to let loose while supporting a good cause this Australia Day, then Nanango is the place to be.

Events across Nanango are finding ways to fundraise for the Butter Factory's Inclusive Park Project, bringing in a playground that is accessible to people with disabilities.

A breakfast will be held at the Nanango RSL, the showgrounds will host Australia Day celebrations from 12pm until 5pm, and then people move onto the Palace Hotel from then onwards.


Palace Hotel manager Beau Smith spoke more about what people can look forward to.

"We've got live music from 5pm 'til late, with Alex the Frenchman, and Rowan Edwards playing. It'll be a very chill, laid back way to celebrate Australia Day," he said.

"The RSL, showground and I all worked together to raise as much money as we can, so there will be some activities too. People will just have to pay a to join in."

Mr Smith said the Butter Factory's Inclusive Park Project is important to Nanango.

"We don't have an all-inclusive park in the South Burnett, and as well as being a great step forward for the community, an all-inclusive park will really be a draw card for Nanango."
