Upgrading the event office for the Windorah Rodeo Club

June 28, 2021

Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced the Windorah Rodeo Club will make use of a $3000 Federal Government grant to install plumbing and set the demountable office on stumps.

“The Windorah Rodeo Club host various horse events including camp drafts, rodeos, and gymkhanas which are open to community members from far and wide,” Mr Littleproud said.

“When hosting these events, the club is the social epicenter of the region and allows all members of the community to come together.

“This funding under the Stronger Communities Programme will help to set the demountable office of the Windorah Rodeo Club on stumps and have plumbing installed, to turn it into a fully functional office for use during camp drafting, rodeos and gymkhanas.

“These events bring the community together especially in small remote areas such as Windorah.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – this upgrade for the Windorah Rodeo Club reflects this.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 6 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups. 14 projects across Maranoa were funded in this round.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
