Our latest Australian citizen Elisa Seul with Mayor Glen Hartwig, Division 1 Councillor Jessica Milne and MP Tony Perrett
Last month one of our locals became an Aussie and we are so proud of this mum, wife, and business owner of Rainbow Beach.
Co-owner of Rainbow Beach Pizza and Grill with husband and chef Sean, and owner of Rainbow Beach Weddings, Elisa became an Australian citizen and is thrilled.
Elisa said: “It created an emotion I cannot describe to be officially recognised as part of the country after eight years spent in Rainbow Beach.
“As you know I am an active member of our local community and I intend to offer and support even more of our area’s development.
“I came to travel Australia but pretty much got stuck in Rainbow Beach and there hasn’t been a day yet spent without learning something about this region.”
Elisa and Seul are an important part of the fabric of the region raising a young daughter and Elisa is the organiser of the Wellness Expo which will be on again next year.
The Citizenship Ceremony was held at the Pavilion Centre Gympie Showgrounds on Citizenship Day and Elisa was one of the 83,000 new citizens that were naturalised on the day all around Australia.
