Welcome

Keeping on delivering for our communities

Andrew is committed to the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions because, let’s face it, it’s the best place in Queensland to live and work. And Andrew is determined, with your help, to keep it that way. It’s why he lives here, in Palmwoods, with his wife Taryn and their five children and why he’s worked hard over the past eleven years as your member of parliament delivering for our amazing communities.

Sometimes, great community organisations know they’ve achieved all they set out to achieve, found permanent solutions to local problems and realise it’s time to step away. Yesterday, Celebrate Glasshouse Country wound up - resting on the knowledge the Beerwah Street Party will continue and the likes of the Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce Inc., the RSL Beerwah and District Sub Branch and the Hinterland Community Development Program (among others) will keep their legacy alive. Massive thanks to Judy, Roger, Maree and Jenny for all they’ve done for our Glasshouse a country region! ... See MoreSee Less

You know about State of Origin but did you know about the “Battle of the Butchers”? Well, each year the Glassies - the Glass House Small Business Awards - particularly in the Woodford and Wamuran Business Network, are hotly contested by the local butchers.

Last year, Ledgers Country Butchery won out but could this be Wamuran Country Meats year? Or will the D'Aguilar Corner Store, Sticks & Stones Espresso Bar, Rayview Produce and Saddlery, Ray White Wamuran or one of the many businesses I’m hoping you nominate come through the pack and pip them at the post??

Time will tell but you must nominate your favourite small business and employee at www.andrewpowell.com.au before 5th July for them to even be in the running!

The recent Census confirmed what we’ve known for some time - the Sunshine Coast is the place to be! And people are moving here in their tens of thousands. Which is why we need a modern public transport system that includes heavy rail from Beerwah to Caloundra to Kawana to Maroochydore. We need it now! But if this Palaszczuk Government won’t build it, David Crisafulli MP and the LNP will if elected in October 2024! 🚊 ... See MoreSee Less
