Hay runners stop over at Augathella

THE Burrumbuttock hay runners from Maryborough have made it to Augathella, where they are expected to meet up with the rest of the convoy, delivering much-needed hay to central Queensland.

Since mid-January this year, the Fraser Coast community has raised enough money to send more than 300 bales of hay to those who need it.

Seven B-doubles from the Fraser Coast will be joining other trucks from Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales.

The national convoy is expected to stretch more than 160km long.
