Mobile service centre Golden Wattle returns to Maranoa

December 3, 2021

The Mobile Service Centre Golden Wattle is travelling through Southern Queensland to provide support to rural and regional communities nearby.

Member for Maranoa David Littleproud welcomed news that Golden Wattle would visit Millmerran and Crows Nest.

“Staff on board Golden Wattle provide friendly face-to-face services, information and support tailored to customers in these rural and regional communities,” Mr Littleproud said.

“They’re able to help with Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations and a number of other essential government services.”

Golden Wattle is one of three trucks in the Mobile Service Centre fleet operated by Services Australia. Earlier this year the fleet was diverted to assist people impacted by bushfires in WA as well as severe storms and flooding across eastern Australia.

In total, Mobile Service Centres have travelled over 970,000 kilometres since 2006 and have assisted over 166,000 customers in more than 5,400 communities.

  • Crows Nest – Friday 17 December (9.30 am to 3 pm) –  near Centenary Park, Charlotte Street

All services provided on Golden Wattle are offered with strict COVID-19 safety precautions in place.
