Final partnership meeting for 2020 highlights achievements

Fitzroy Partnership was pleased to welcome a number of partnership representatives in person and online for a bi-annual meeting in Rockhampton on Tuesday 10 November 2020.

The meeting discussed the full range of activities and achievements of the Partnership during the year and looked forward to 2021 to two major items, a strategic review of the partnership due in February and the release of the 10-year Annual Report Card mid-year.

One of the benefits of Fitzroy Partnership for River Health membership is the unique opportunity for a diverse range of stakeholders operating in the Fitzroy Basin to meet and collaborate about waterway health in the region.
