The Schubert Electorate Office will be closed from midday,
Tuesday 23rd December 2014 and re-open at 9am on Monday 5th January 2015.
Dear residents of Schubert,
It has been a busy time over the past few months getting out to explore as much of this beautiful electorate as I can. Thank you all
for your time, it is always a pleasure to meet you and hear your concerns.
In Parliament, we have been discussing major changes to WorkCover legislation and I do sincerely hope that the new system is
fairer for employees and will provide some welcome relief to struggling businesses’ high costs. If you would like further information
on the changes please contact my office.
In terms of the high cost of running a household, we have seen large increases in the Emergency Services Levy really hit home,
especially the unfairness this increase has on those who volunteer their time in our emergency services. We are a community built
on volunteer spirit and this is just another hurdle that will erode that goodwill and discourage people from volunteering.
We have seen that our water rates are really a tax that is being used to prop up the Weatherill Labor Government budget. This has
been hard for residents but would have had a much worse impact on our vignerons were it not for the foresight and great work of
Barossa Infrastructure Limited. I was proud to show State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall around BIL and show him the innovative
response to water security in the Barossa.
I have continued to fight for a new hospital and will not stop until it is built. In order to present the best case to government, we
need to be prepared to work towards the best solution for the community as a whole and to be united in our cause. I am looking
forward to the upcoming review of health services in the region and talking to all stakeholders on the issue.
Thank you to everyone that has responded to our Roads Register. This has really helped to solidify my understanding of the
priorities and help me advocate for change.
I have been encouraged by the recent Barossa Council Rural Areas and Character Review and look forward to seeing changes
that will give greater freedom to our agricultural sector to value add their produce. I would love to hear from those of you who have
been through the planning process. In order for the region to continue to grow and prosper we must make sure we get the planning
On behalf of Courtney, Brendan and Sam in the Schubert office as well as Amy, Ruby and myself, I would like to wish you all a very
Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Ms Dot Bonner, chairman of

has done a lot of hard work and they
are glad to be recognised for all the
effort they put into their catering.
“We are pretty chuffed about [the
award]. We are just on the committee,
we just do this and that. You don’t
realise that you are appreciated. It’s
the last thing we expected,” said Dot.
“We attract a lot of tourists, we are
willing to put ourselves out there and
do the hard yards. People have got to
have a place for functions. Other than
the show hall, this is the next biggest
and nicest place to have functions.
“The hall in any community is a
place for people to gather. It is used on
a pretty regular basis... It’s excellent,
there are people out there that sit up
and have taken notice of us.”
The committee caters for local and
private events, as well as community
orientated events. All funds raised go
towards the town hall maintenance
and up keep, as well as to community
groups in Eudunda.
They also cater for the Eudunda
Heritage Gallery for the tourist buses
that come down to the area.
In September last year, the
committee was catering for tour buses
nearly every day.
In 2010, the committee refurbished
the kitchen at the town hall to be used
by the committee and members of the
Once the kitchen was completed,
they raised funds to repaint the hall
and have a new sound system and
projector installed in the hall.
Around nine volunteers are on the
committee but for larger functions
they have other volunteers in
Eudunda willing to lend a hand.
