      The Queensland state government is taking steps to revitalize the state's economy, with a focus on the nightlife industry and first home buyers. Premier Stephen Miles has announced plans to appoint a new nightlife economy commissioner to bring positive change and economic growth, and has also raised the stamp duty threshold to $700,000 to help thousands of first home buyers each year. Additionally, the RACQ has launched an unroadworthy road survey to address road issues and improve safety, following a devastating weekend on Queensland roads. The public is encouraged to report potholes, lack of shoulders, faded lines, and other road hazards. Sadly, two people lost their lives in separate crashes over the weekend. The search continues for a missing 79-year-old man, Sydney Clark, who was last seen in the CBD in May 2023. And, in exciting news for wildlife conservation, 60 northern hairy-nosed wombats are set to be relocated to the Pearl Run Estate Forest in Saint George in the coming years.
