Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy, visited Rainbow last Thursday. This was the last stop on a busy trip for her as she had visited Murtoa, Rupanyup, Minyip, Warracknabeal and Brim on her way to Rainbow.

Local residents discussed the poor state of local roads and the fact that there was no area where firewood could be legally collected close to the town, the nearest collection area being nearly 100 kilometres away.

Ms Kealy then visited the Rainbow skatepark and the new brewery site.
