Mr O'DOWD (Flynn) (13:31): It is a pleasure that I attended the Wondai Show on 1 September. Wondai is in the southern part of my electorate. 2018 marks the 101st Wondai Show. It was first held in 1911. A few years were missed due to drought, depression and war. Competitors travel from all across the state. There are 21 competition sections in the show: wood chop, poultry, cattle, equestrian, trucks, vintage cars, woodwork et cetera. The two days of the Wondai Show were action packed, attracting thousands of entries and thousands of spectators. The show was officially open by Dr Linda Stewart. Dr Stewart was educated in Wondai and Kingaroy, and is an inspiration to all regional youth. She has university degrees—Bachelor of Health Science and Bachelor of Medicine. Dr Stewart is currently working at the Toowoomba Hospital. Dr Stewart said, 'If you are dedicated, you will get there.' Congratulations to the Wondai API Society and all involved. Well done.
