We'd arrived at our last stop, Chinchilla, a town just 300km from Brisbane with a population of just under 6,000. It was our last day of service projects. The Big Lifters helped out at a variety of different places which included: The Historical Museum, Youth Hub Centre and other community members homes. Then at the end of the day, we were warmly welcomed for dinner at Cameby Hall. During the night many community members openly shared their perspectives and experiences of what rural life is like and what some of the major struggles are for people living in regional communities.
Chinchilla- Day 7
We'd had our last Big Lift Fam camp fire and sleepover but it was finally time to pack up and head home. Overall, the trip fed us with a lot of food for thought and we'd all gained a lot of new knowledge about regional and rural life. We are very grateful to all the communities: Dalby, Injune, Roma and Chinchilla for allowing us to visit and learn more about your amazing towns. We look forward to visiting in the future!
