Dale Holliss of Bundaberg Canegrowers, National Irrigators Council and Bundaberg Regional Irrigators Group is proud to be in the Australian farming industry, in which farmers are proud and committed custodians of the land, rivers and oceans on which they live and work.

The forum was led by Marine Geophysicist Dr Peter Ridd and included KAP, One Nation and the LNP.
