Opening the Woodside Energy Innovation Centre at Monash University

On 15 June, I participated in the official opening of the Woodside Energy Innovation Centre at Monash University. Woodside’s generous donation of $10 million will help Monash University work closely with industry, boosting Australia’s competitiveness and delivering the jobs of the future. For example, the Centre recently used 3D printing to produce a critical component for one of Woodside’s gas facilities off the Western Australian coast.  Julia Banks, the Liberal candidate for Chisholm, and I toured the Centre, speaking to the researchers and seeing the advanced equipment first hand.

Representing the Prime Minister at the Financial Review's National Infrastructure Summit

On 15 June, I had the privilege to represent the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, at the Australian Financial Review's 2016 National Infrastructure Summit in Sydney. As part of my speech, I highlighted the Turnbull Government's commitment to developing key economic infrastructure, through initiatives like the $5 billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility, and also our commitment to pursuing innovative methods to develop infrastructure, such as our City Deals initiative.

Coalition funds MND research

It was a great privilege to walk beside proud Kooyong constituent and Queens Birthday Honours recipient, Neale Daniher today for the Freeze MND - Melbourne vs Collingwood game. $2.5m has been raised so far and the Coalition has promised that we will match the amount raised for today's 'Big Freeze 2' at the G to support motor neurone research efforts.

Out and about in Kooyong

It was great to catch up with some local small businesses on 11 June even though Melbourne put on one of its coldest days this year! I also called in to see Eddie at Grosvenor Dry Cleaners to pick up my dry cleaning and had a great chat to him about his business.I also called into Mint Gifts where it's always easy to find a great gift. It's always great to stop by Hahndorf's in Kew and chat with Suria and her team and see some of the great food and chocolates that they have on offer!

The Annual Queen's Birthday weekend lunch for the Balwyn Football Club saw the clubhouse packed out with Tiger's supports and sponsors, ahead of the game against Noble Park.  Josh is pictured with Tigers President Richard Wilson and Channel 9 personality Craig Hutchinson. 

Hawthorn Men's Shed Open Day

It was terrific to visit the Hawthorn Men’s Shed on 10 June for the Shed's interactive open day. I was very impressed with the amazing woodwork produced by such talented carpentry experts! I also took the opportunity to have a quick lunch and chat with the members and take a tour of the centre, which provides allied health, therapy and social support programs. The centre also features a fully supported gym designed for older people and a wide range of leisure and lifestyle opportunities for its members.

Launch of Saved to Remember

Professor Frank Vajda is a distinguished Australian, neurologist, and now, author. On 9 June, I was honoured to launch his memoirs, Saved to Remember, at Readings in Hawthorn. Professor Vajda's book is a moving tale of drama, tragedy, family and heroism.

Visit to Forrest with Nola Marino MP

On 8 June 2016, I was delighted to visit the electorate of Forrest with Nola Marino MP. We first visited Iluka Resources, an impressive mineral sands mining company in Capel, WA. Iluka is a significant player in the mineral sands market, and is the largest producer of zircon, and the largest producer of high grade titanium dioxide products. We then visited two earth moving and transport businesses in Nola’s electorate – Piacentini’s and Catalano’s – where we discussed the essential services they provide to the mining and construction sectors in Western Australia. The following morning, I caught up with Senator Dean Smith in Perth, where we met with pastoralists to discuss the Government’s plan for developing northern Australia.

Address to 2016 AMEC Conference in Western Australia

On 8 June 2016, I was pleased to address the 2016 Annual Conference of the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC) in Perth. My speech – which you can read here – focused on promoting innovation and growth in the Australian mineral exploration and mining sectors. I also discussed the state of the industry and the Government’s approach to supporting the sector to deliver growth and jobs. It was also terrific to catch up with Andrew Forrest, Chairman of Fortescue Metals Group, before my speech.
