28 wishes for the Fraser Coast

WE'VE all got a wish for the Fraser Coast. 

Whether it be more for younger kids, a better night life or bringing back the drive in theatre. 

We did a shout out on Facebook asking what your one wish for the Fraser Coast would be and here is a list of 28 of the best. 


1. A return of real industry to Downer EDI Rail to breath life and employment back into Maryborough.
