Gympie needs a lifeline

THE Mary River and her tributaries may not have risen this time to the height or with the ferocity of the January floods, but coming on the back of that disaster, which came on the back of the 2011 and 2012 floods, it has been devastating.

Austen Tayshus asked Aussies in the 1980s "How much can a koala bear?" and now we pose that question to all levels of Aussie government: how much can this community be expected to bear without serious help and protection?

Our business people, farmers, clubs and local economy - the impact of back-to-back flooding has been enormous.

Gympie's never-say-die spirit is struggling to keep its head above water.
