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.

    March 2017 - Networking Night and The Betoota Advocate

    Local News, Global Reach - the Renaissance of Regional Reporting

    The Betoota Advocate is arguably one of Australia’s most popular satirical news sites.

    Established by Errol Parker (Editor-at-large) and Clancy Overell (Editor), The Betoota Advocate claims to be ‘Australia’s oldest newspaper’ and published from the far south west Queensland town of Betoota (population 0).

    Since venturing online in 2014, it has quickly become a player in online 'news' and entertainment, punching far above its weight, given not a word of it is true and it was launched by three young blokes with not much more than a laptop and a distinctively larrikin Aussie humour.

    Join us for our March evening event to network with media professionals and hear how the funny duo went from humble beginnings to the legends behind the digital news sensation that is The Betoota Advocate.
