A tradition which dates back centuries was honoured today with the blessing of GPC's new pilot vessel “Takoko”.
Gladstone local, Matt Campbell, was hot off the starting blocks and was the first registrant for the 2017 Botanic to Bridge.
GPC's Spinnaker Park may look a little brighter and the footpaths a little smoother next time you visit.
Funds raised from Botanic to Bridge registrations go directly to local schools or the 2017 major community beneficiary, St Vincent de Pauls Society - Gladstone.
GPC is proud to support the oldest continuous culture on the planet, this week celebrating National Reconciliation Week.
