Welcome to the Rural Press Club, Queensland's leading agribusiness network.

If Queensland agriculture is your interest, the Rural Press Club (RPC) of Queensland is interested in you.

RPC Queensland is a dynamic association of rural media, public relations, agriculture, business and government groups.

It's the essential forum to expand your professional networks, reach people of influence and outrun the herd on agricultural news, people and trends.

Rub shoulders with the influencers in Queensland agriculture at the Club’s monthly events in Brisbane and around the State. Leave with fresh ideas and new connections.

These popular monthly functions are a highlight of the Club’s calendar.

They feature engaging expert speakers who put the spotlight on the important topics that matter to the people and industries of rural Queensland.

    November Lunch: Australian Agriculture – Funding our Future

    It’s a story many of us have heard before … that Australia’s agriculture sector has an enormous future opportunity driven by the continuing shift of economic growth from the developed to the developing world.

    Capturing this opportunity depends on our ag sector addressing some of the key issues that are hindering performance and holding back potential future growth.

    Please join Mark Bennett (ANZ Head of Agribusiness) for a panel discussion and the release of an ANZ research report ‘Australian Agriculture – Funding our Future’, which looks at the future funding models for farming in Australia. The panellists include Michael Blakeney, Investment Director, Blue Sky Water Partners and Quentin Kennedy, Managing Director, Kialla Pure Foods.
