STATE infrastructure minister Cameron Dick arrived in Beaudesert this morning to take part in a meeting of the Local Disaster Management Group held at Scenic Rim Regional Council.

At the meeting was Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen, Scenic Rim councillors and staff and representatives of Queensland Police Service and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.

Mr Dick attended the meeting ahead of a trip to the Canungra emergency refuge centre at Moriarty Park, the emergency services staging area at Canungra Showgrounds and Beechmont.

This comes after the mayor announced this morning that while many of those forced to leave their homes during the bushfire had now been able to return, the recovery period would be ongoing as many come to terms with the enormity of the event.
