Beyond the city gates (okay, the urban sprawl) lies regional Australia: home to around a third of the nation’s population. Too often missing from the national conversation, the regions will be the focus of this Question Time event. We’ll examine the issues facing country communities and shine a light on the advances and innovations that are changing regional Australia as we know it. Think infrastructure, transport, the NBN, disaster management, exports and climate change. Madeleine Morris hosts a full hour of audience Q&A with a panel including Su McCluskey, immediate past CEO of the Regional Australia Institute, rural leader and Voices for Indi president Alana Johnson and Mark Muller of R.M. Williams Publishing.
