The Andrews Labor Government is supporting East Gippsland locals impacted by recent bushfires, drought and the pandemic to take a break and enjoy concerts with Paul Kelly - one of Australia’s most celebrated musicians.
The ARIA Hall of Fame singer and songwriter will perform two shows in the region in August as part of the Labor Government’s Recharge program, designed to provide time out to farmers, their families and other members of the community who have struggled with extreme weather conditions in recent years.
The Government established Recharge in 2019, backed by $750,000, in response to severe drought conditions across eastern Victoria, before expanding the program following the summer bushfires of late 2019 and early 2020.
Tickets are normally limited to participants identified through local Primary Healthcare Partnerships programs. However, in addition to eligible participants, members of the community will have a chance to attend the concert.
