The CPA Group recently proudly sponsored a Western Downs and Surat Basin Community Engagement Tour, led by CPA Group’s Indigenous Ambassador Lorraine Hatton, OAM.

The engagement tour’s aim was to inform the regional community, both young and old, about Qld’s State Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial, planned for ANZAC Square Brisbane.

Lorraine was showing a 3D Printed Miniature of the Memorial. Lorraine also spoke to students about the importance of education and good health.

The visit to Dalby and Chinchilla included many meetings with local groups. We also proudly displayed CPA Group Fire and Rescue Vehicle – we gave away CPA Group hats to the local kids!

Community groups and corporations who participated included:

  • Dalby QPS and PCYC Staff
  • Dalby State High School Staff and Students
  • Goondir Big Buddy Indigenous Kids Programme
  • Goondir Health Services Staff
  • Dalby Elders
  • Arrow Energy
  • Indigenous Youth Groups
  • Chinchilla Health and Community Centre
  • QGC
  • Chinchilla QPS Staff
  • Community Support Group Staff


Lorraine is always so popular wherever she goes as you can see from the photos, and we are so lucky at CPA Group to be associated with Lorraine’s wonderful work.
