2006 Year of the Outback
South West Regional Recognition Awards ’The Mulgas’
The South West Regional Recognition Awards were launched in 1999 by the South West Strategy group and were developed to recognise the enormous contributions of many individuals and/or groups to the region in all aspects of rural life. The awards are designed to recognise outstanding contributions and promote the talents of local people within the region as well as promoting the region to all of Queensland and beyond. The resurrection of these awards in 2006 is especially significant with the awards also coincidng with the Year of the Outback.
