Rob Molhoek MP State Member for Southport

How can I help you?

My vision for our City is to see it grow and develop into a City where businesses are encouraged to be enterprising but also supports and nurtures families and community networks. 

A City which is inviting and safe for residents and visitors regardless of religion, race or origin.  A City which is well planned and sustainable, a City which is so outstanding that everyone else on the planet wished they lived here too.

I’m here to serve the Southport Electorate, which includes the suburbs of Ashmore, Keebra Park, Crestwood Heights, Molendinar, Benowa and Bundall. If I can ever be of service please feel free to contact me on 0430 209 995 or at southport@parliament.qld.gov.au

Fiona Simpson MP and I attended the Gold Coast Jobs & Business Expo at Carrara Indoor Sports Complex this week.

➡️ Hundreds of small and family businesses connecting with one another and looking at opportunities emerging in a post COVID-19 economy.

➡️ Whilst there have been some really positive stories of businesses pivoting and entering new markets. Many of these SMEs have had a tumultuous 12-18 months, some have had to close their doors during lockdowns, lay off staff, and dig into reserves to stay afloat 🔐

Our COVID Business Lockdown Support Package would give them more support and certainty 🙌🏻

Day 3: Tour of Gregory- we’re in Longreach … 🚘

1⃣️ Pioneer Nursing Home, like so many small businesses in Western Queensland, rely on the Federal governments Pacific Labour Scheme for staffing support. This one facility has 60 beds and 15 employees from Kiribati (near Fiji) for certified carers as do the meat works, hospitality industry and fruit pickers. Finding qualified workers is their biggest challenge in the west! 🛋 🏠

2⃣️ Lives Lived Well provide counselling and support for people with drug and alcohol addictions all over QLD. Deb & Nicki service an area out here, the size of Tasmania 👏🏻 including Alpha, Winto, Tambo, Boulia, Barcaldine and Longreach. As a result, they have heavy caseloads and vast distance to cover. The program is seeing people with substance abuses, depression and anxiety, PTSD, psychosis, isolation, and chronic pain. They do a marvelous job with what they have. But of course, they need more support, to do more. 🙌🏻

Earlier today our Leader, David Crisafulli MP announced our plan to help small business. It includes some of the following 👇🏻

▪️ LUMP LOCKDOWN PAYMENTS: payments for small businesses to cover loss of income due to lockdowns
▪️ DEEP CLEANING COVER: a rebate covering deep cleaning fees if a business is identified as a COVID-19 exposure venue
▪️ EVENT CANCELLATION REBATES: covers financial losses if event is cancelled due to a lockdown

The big thing for small business is confidence. Our plan gives them that 👉🏻 But we need more support from this Labor Government.

Yesterday I flew into 🛬 Boulia from Longreach.

I couldn't capture the vast spaces 🌾 of the channel country adequately, nor can I express in words the scale of remoteness I saw from 8500 feet 👀

➡️ Once you are on the ground you get a real sense of just how isolated some of these communities are.

➡️ One shop 🏪, one pub🍻, a tiny school 👨🏻‍🏫️, Desert Sands Motel, council offices, a mini golf club ⛳, the are strip and a giant windmill 💨 which pumps bore water to the nearby towns for water supply.

If isolation plays into mental illness you could see how this would be a challenge for many men and women out here. 🙌🏻 Thank god for programs like Are you bogged mate? which provides counselling and support for rural folks.
