The annual Australia Day Lunch was celebrated on Thursday 24 January at BCEC on Grey St and brought the business, government and not-for-profit sectors together to celebrate our achievements as a nation.
Guests of the annual event were entertained by award winning guitarist Michael Fix, one of Australia’s finest soul singers Mahalia Barnes and Australian Idol finalist James Johnston, while enjoying the best of Queensland produce and wine.
Other highlights included an enthralling keynote address by music commentator and bestselling author Glenn A. Baker, and the announcement of the 2013 Australia Post Australian Legends – an annual series of commemorative postage stamps to honour living Australians who have made lifetime contributions to the country.
In 2013, this program recognised ten Australian music legends:
- John Farnham
- Paul Kelly
- Molly Meldrum
- Kylie Minogue
- Olivia Newton-John
- Cold Chisel
- Men At Work
- The Seekers.
Australia Post presented special guest INXS drummer Jon Farris with a framed set of his band’s stamp at the lunch.
The lunch concluded with a lucky door prize draw including many exciting prizes – 4 tickets to see Pete Murray live at the Eatons Hill Hotel on Australia Day, a $250 voucher from Samies Girl, an annual subscription to attend 10 lunchtime events hosted by The Brisbane Institute and a 12 month weekend subscription to The Courier-Mail and Sunday Mail.
