Peter Garrett visits the arboretum

By johnboy 3 August 2010 22

Chief Minister Stanhope is trumpeting the latest celebrity planting at his arboretum:

Federal Environment Protection Minister Peter Garrett joined Chief Minister Jon Stanhope in the planting of a Queensland Kauri at the National Arboretum today.

The Agathis Robusta, commonly known as the Queensland Kauri, joins many other native trees which have been planted by visiting dignitaries and world leaders in the Arboretum’s formal Central Valley.

The Queensland Kauri, which grows naturally on Fraser Island and around Maryborough in Queensland, is a large evergreen that grows to a height of up to 50 metres.

You couldn’t make it up.

Why was this not a public event? The arboretum seems to be a very closed shop.

Peter Garrett, the only man to have more sell outs after quitting music..

I couldn’t agree more, a total waste of space now all of it/them. But it wasn’t hard to see coming.

You got to love how Labor have burried Peter Garrett during this election – their ‘star’ candidate only a few years ago.

I think he’s been locked in the basement of Parliament House (alongside Wilson Tuckey and Barnaby Joyce), and won’t be released until after the election.
