News Corp Australia’s national Bush Summit kicked off on Friday, August 11 in Tamworth. Prime Minister Anthony Albanese delivered the keynote address, his fifth time attending the annual event. He was joined by New South Wales Premier Chris Minns, Leader of the Federal Opposition Peter Dutton and Minister for the Environment and Water Tanya Plibersek, as well as rural and regional locals, stakeholders, farmers and business people.
The Summit’s primary objective, since The Daily Telegraph launched it in New South Wales in 2019, has been to achieve better outcomes, improve services and identify new opportunities for rural communities to present to federal and state governments.
The 2023 Bush Summit now travels to Perth in Western Australia, Port Lincoln in South Australia, Hobart, Tasmania, Wodonga in Victoria and Rockhampton in Queensland for events this week.
Across this year’s national program, key decision makers, politicians, and community leaders will address the audience, with The Daily Telegraph, The Courier-Mail, Herald Sun, The Advertiser, and The Mercury hosting their respective state’s proceedings, and The Australian leading the Summit in Western Australia.
This week, News Corp Australia is getting behind the Matildas in the lead-up to the World Cup semi-final with a series of editorial initiatives to celebrate their success while the big event continues to lure audiences to its online news sites in droves.
