Time is running out for members looking to object to the State Government’s new land valuations.
Objections must be lodged with the Valuer General by 31 May if you want to avoid the subsequent council rates and rent increases.

Some of the largest rises in primary production have taken place at Diamantina 155%, Bulloo 128%, Quilpie 108%, Central Highlands 100%, Issac 97%, Charters Towers 97%, Balonne 89%, Murweh 85%, and Barcoo 82%.
