NPAQ is painting the town in celebration of our 90th Anniversary

BRISBANE, Australia - AussieJournal -- On July 22nd Brisbane City Hall and King George Square will be lit up in blue and green to celebrate the National Parks Association of Queensland's (NPAQ) 90th Anniversary.

As NPAQ is Queensland's oldest environmental not-for-profit organisation and one of the oldest in Australia, it occupies a unique place in our history.

"National parks are so important for many reasons, but particularly our health. That's why we are using the colours blue and green for this momentous occasion, to highlight the importance of blue and green spaces for our wellbeing" said NPAQ President, Susanne Cooper.

Joining the celebrations as guest speakers are Queensland Environment Minister, Meaghan Scanlon and Chair of Queensland's First Nations Tourism Council, Cameron Costello.

"It's fantastic to have everyone come together to celebrate our milestone anniversary, and it's great timing following the record-breaking budget allocation to national parks and protected areas announced last month," said Ms Cooper.
