Negative Gearing Roundtable

On 27 April, I hosted a roundtable discussion with local real estate agents as well as the Chairman of the Real Estate Institute of Australia, Neville Sanders and  the CEO of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, Enzo Raimondo, to discuss the detrimental impact of Labor's proposed changes to negative gearing and capital gains tax – lower house values, increased rents, and stifling entrepreneurial investment.

Alia College celebration

On 26 April, I joined the Alia College community to celebrate the purchase of their school building. The school acquired Kawarau House in Hawthorn in Kooyong with the support of Australian Government funding. The school has been based at Kawarau House since 2006. I was delighted to attend the official celebration, and spend time with students and teachers.


Anzac Day Services in Kooyong

It was a real honour for me to attend a number of Anzac Day services in Kooyong this weekend.  On Sunday 23 April I joined the Camberwell City RSL members for a wonderful Anzac Day service and got to speak to Jack a POW in WWII who turns 100 next year.

I am pictured here with Peter Fielding from the Camberwell City RSL and Jack.

I then proudly marched in the Kew RSL's annual march from its headquarters in Kew, down Cotham Road to the Cenotaph where I laid a wreath. We then marched up to the Kew Uniting Church where the annual service is held. This year saw a record turnout and for me it was an honour to march alongside veterans and their families and to see so many local school students, scouts and residents participate in the march.

Many locals turned out for the Anzac Day dawn service in Surrey Gardens hosted by the Surrey Hills Progress Association. There were hundreds of locals in attendance paying tribute to the Anzacs including students from local primary schools. It was very special to meet Grace, the great niece of local Gunner Charles De Burgh Hogg who died in 1916 and is buried in Somme.

Colombo's business lunch

Colombo’s and Bill Kurban are Balwyn institutions, as are their business lunches. I enjoyed returning to Colombo’s on 20 April, where I addressed 100 local business owners about the resources sector and the opportunities facing the Australian economy.

Global Food Forum 2016

It was an honour to deliver a keynote address at this year’s Global Food Forum in Melbourne on 20 April. Now in its fourth year, the forum is presented by the Australian in partnership with VISY, and features business leaders, farmers, politicians and international speakers discussing the state of Australia’s thriving agribusiness sector. I discussed the opportunities presented by emerging global markets, as well as the potential of northern Australia to take advantage of soaring demand for our food exports. By opening up new overseas markets, investing in the necessary infrastructure and ensuring that Australia remains an attractive destination for investment, the Government is committed to ensuring the agricultural sector’s success.

Kew East Primary School visits Canberra

One of my Canberra highlights is spending time with the hundreds of Kooyong school students that visit Parliament each year. On 19 April, I was delighted to welcome and meet a large group of 115 students visiting from Kew East Primary School. The students toured Parliament and attended Question Time – as have two million other Australian students since the first opening of Australian Parliament House in 1988.

Auburn Primary School Fete

The Auburn Primary School Fete lived up to its reputation thgis year with lots of great stalls and fun activities for every member of the family. Some of the activities included a soccer clinic, performances by the junior and senior school choir and the school band, a book signing by AFL's Sam Mitchell. It was a fabulous (and sunny!) day and credit goes to all those involved for making this annual community event such a great success!

Raising funds for cure4MND Foundation at BNA

The Boroondara Netball Association based at Macleay Park in North Balwyn is the largest netball association in Victoria with over 3,500 people playing on the netball courts each season. BNA has over 300 community and school based teams playing in the domestic competition each year. Today was an extra special day at Macleay Park when I joined the BNA President Sue Reddish, Treasurer, Kirrily Zimmerman and Bec Daniher who is also a board member of Cure4MND, to raise much needed funds for the cure4MND Foundation established by footy great and local, Neale Daniher.  I am pictured here with Sue Reddish, a just-dunked Kirrily Zimmerman and Bec Daniher.

LNG18 Conference in Perth

Between 11 and 15 April, Perth hosted LNG18, which saw 6,000 industry leaders from 95 countries descend on the city. With Australia to overtake Qatar as the world’s largest LNG producer by 2020, it was a good opportunity in the plenary and bilateral sessions to underline Australia’s significant market position and commitment to attracting foreign investment.

Inspecting Australia’s future LNG infrastructure in South Korea

On 15 April I visited Samsung Heavy industries in Busan, South Korea to see some of Australia’s future LNG infrastructure being built. Shell’s Prelude floating LNG facility, which will be based 200km off the coast of Western Australia, will be the largest offshore facility ever built. I also visited Inpex’s Ichthys Central Processing Facility, which will also enable processing of gas to take place offshore before being transmitted through the 890km pipeline to Darwin. This important infrastructure will enable Australia’s large gas fields to be developed and help Australia to become the world’s largest LNG exporter by 2020.
