PM pays tribute to Goodna

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard this morning led a long list of dignitaries who paid tribute to the people of Goodna a year on from the floods that devastated the suburb.

Before a crowd of hundreds, the Prime Minister spoke about the strength of Goodna's residents in the aftermath of last January's floods before she helped unveil a memorial called the Pillar of Courage.

Ms Gillard later met with SES volunteers at the Ipswich headquarters in Thorne St.

Another flood memorial, the Stone of Courage, will be unveiled this evening at River Heart Parklands in the Ipswich CBD.
