Australian Government workers are continuing their road trip through the Wide Bay-Burnett over the coming weeks, announcing eight more stopovers in the region to help locals access critical services like Centrelink.

The Mobile Service Centre ‘Desert Rose’ will make its next round of stops in the North Burnett, South Burnett, Gympie and Toowoomba regions from 13 June, starting with a 9:30am to 4pm day in Biggenden.

Between then and 22 June, Desert Rose will travel to seven other towns across the four regions, allowing residents of each locality the opportunity to access government services like Medicare, Centrelink and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

The centre’s staff of trained professionals will provide face-to-face support for those struggling to access these services online, or those who have questions about their existing accounts.
