SIGN UPGRADE: Check out the plans for region's fresh look

THE South Burnett will be receiving a fresh upgrade across the board after the South Burnett Regional Council announced their plan to upgrade town entry signs.

The Council currently plans to include new signage to Blackbutt, Kingaroy, Murgon, Nanango, Wondai, Benarkin, Bunya Mountains, Coolabunia, Crawford, Durong, Hivesville, Kumbia, Maidenwell, Memerambi, Moffatdale, Proston, Tingoora and Wooroolin.

Finalisation of the catalogue will take place during a Council Meeting on September 18.

There will be a total of 38 signs developed, all with the plan to showcase the South Burnett and the identity of its communities.

The signs will feature unique background images significant to the town, aiming to encompass themes of the region's rich history.

With this, it will also help to further encourage regional diversity, as the Council announces it will link to historic indigenous titles, economic drivers, heritage and the region's natural beauty.

As part of recognising the historic indigenous titles, the Council states that the signage will include imagery of a carpet python, which is the symbol of the Wakka Wakka people who traditionally own the land.

The Council expects the to start the installation process this December, carrying the work through to the first quarter of 2020.

The Council states that a full copy of the signage catalogue will be available on their website until September 8.
