Queensland Community Achievement Awards

Dinner Guest Testimonials

I would like to express my sincere appreciation and thanks again. I am truly humbled and honored to receive this award. However this award is more appropriately deserved to the mentors, learners, the community along with Arrow Energy. In achieving our vision "Educate learner drivers on driving and being safe". I am deeply grateful for this honor, if there is anything that I can do for the Regional Achievement & Community Awards. Thanks.

An excellent well organized event. The award presentations were inspiring. A great opportunity to network with the many regional representatives present I would recommend attending this event.

I would like to commend the organisers of the Regional Achievement and Community Awards, the venue was so beautiful at Royal on the Park, the service was great, food was amazing and the MC being Kendall from Channel 7 was the best that I have ever seen. The entertainment with Chrislyn Hamilton was excellent, all in all a great night was had by all - Thanks so much.

Congratulations to Awards Australia organisers for hosting a 15th fabulous event. It was very special to be present in a room with so many caring people representing many organisations throughout Queensland. Well done all round. I enjoyed the presentation dinner immensely. In our daily news, we hear mostly about South-East Queensland, and other capital cities. Meanwhile, in regional Queensland, there are so many awesome people doing awesome things. The Awards are an excellent opportunity to showcase what Regional Queensland is contributing to our State and country. Well done.

As an observer and supporter of a winning entrant, I thought the awards did a marvellous job of recognising regional Queenslanders for their input into their communities. Well done to all of the organisers and entrants.

I have never attended such a smoothly rolling, professionally organised event! I am a meticulous European and simply loved how well and carefully all details have been attended to. I think the best in the whole event was that it was not a 'formal gala'; it was full of heart, soul, positive emotions and a spectacular vibe! And that can only be possible with host people having a heart, soul, lots of positive energy and empathy. Thank you so much for allowing me to experience perfect joy with so many excellent people! You created not only a gala but a worthy birthplace of once-in-a-lifetime memories. With love,

A wonderful concept to reward regional volunteers. I originate from Cairns and believe that regional Queensland is the powerhouse of the state.

Great function, excellent presentations of each finalist's area: pleasant, competent MC; brief but informative speeches from sponsors; love to have copies of each finalist presentation.

These awards are an excellent platform for showcasing some of the great Australians we have here in regional Queensland. The night was great.

We were honoured to be nominated for these awards and then to win 2 awards was one of the most exciting experiences of my life. I was so impressed with how the awards were run and the presentation of the room. Then we had a lovely meal surrounded by people who do amazing things in our great State. It was an honour to be there and we had such a wonderful night. Thank you.
