Golden Wattle is hitting the road to give people in Dayboro and across Queensland easy access to government services.
Staff on board have delivered Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support services to almost 150,000 customers since 2006.
Golden Wattle is one of two 20 tonne trucks run by the Department of Human Services and has travelled over 900,000 kilometres and to more than 4,900 communities.
These trucks are purpose-built to replicate a service centre, complete with the latest technology.
Member for Dickson Peter Dutton said Golden Wattle will be welcomed by locals as it travels through his electorate over the coming weeks.
“Staff on board Golden Wattle can help locals with Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations and online services,” Mr Dutton said.
“Department of Veterans’ Affairs programs and associated support services will also be available.”
The Golden Wattle provides tailored support and information to people in rural communities.
Mobile Service Centres reinforce the Australian Government’s commitment to delivering the best services to all Australians, regardless of where they live.
