Winter Harvest Festival at Aratula
Welcome to the website of the Beaudesert Community Arts and Information Centre. The aim of our centre is firstly to provide a showcase for local art and craft. Amongst our talented contributors are painters, sculptors, textile artists, woodworkers, writers, musicians, paper artists and food providores. As most of our contributors also man the centre from time to time, you will meet them when you come to visit.
We also provide information for visitors to the area, and it is our staff members' personal extensive knowledge which helps people who come here from all parts of the world to enjoy our special region.
The centre is also a meeting place for community groups.
On the website you'll find out what's happening in the area, from our calendar and from our "What's on" page. There'll also be reports on recent events.

Ipswich Volunteers' Forum
We had a very interesting trip to Ipswich last Friday for the Volunteers' Forum. Information Centre volunteers from Redland Bay, Scenic Rim, Brisbane City, Brisbane airport and Ipswich attended. Mayor Paul Pisasale welcomed us at the Railway workshops with an entertaining speech in which he expressed his passion for the Ipswich region. After a delicious morning tea we were taken on a tour of the attractions of Ipswich, just enough to make us want to go back to see more.
Queen's park is a great feature in the city, with its Nerima Japanese Gardens and the animal section where bilbies are bred. It was good to see many of the beautiful old homes restored to their former glory.
After lunch at the Railway workshops we were taken in groups on tours of the railway museum and workshop. To end the day we returned to the cafeteria to undergo a quiz. Our table was a mixture of Scenic Rim, Airport and other volunteers; Lindy and Beryl made a big contribution to our score of 17 out of 19!
It was a most enjoyable social day, where we met lots of volunteers from other parts of Southeast Queensland. Many thanks to Kelli Rabbitt from the Scenic Rim council and the Ipswich people for organising the very successful day.

Lions Road Closure
The Lions Road is closed for several months, for bridge works. Six bridges will be replaced on the Grady's Creek and Lions Roads. Existing bridges have load limits of between 2 and 25 tonnes, which has restricted the timber, beef and tourism industries.
During construction of the new bridges there will be changed traffic conditions, detours and longer travel times around some of the sites for local residents.
The new bridges will improve safety and access for all road users. Council expects to finish work on the six bridges sometime during 2017.

Speed Restrictions on Lakes Maroon and Moogerah
SEQ Water has gazetted three areas, one on Moogerah Dam and two on Maroon Dam, as 6 knot areas, to improve water safety. The plans here indicate the locations of the slow speed areas.
The gazetted areas were approved by Maritime Safety Queensland, and are a result of community consultation by Queensland Boating and Fisheries.
The three areas were identified for a number of reasons, including their high level of use for activities such as kayaking and fishing, as well as the presence of vertical rock walls and submerged or standing timber.
