ACTING Prime Minister Julie Bishop visited the Grand View Hotel to deliver a speech about Australia’s growing importance in the world.
She roused more than 200 sleepy-eye LNP supporters gathered for breakfast at the Cleveland venue on Sunday, November 12.
Hotel owner Karen Brock said gas stoppages, caused by a construction site cave-in at Middle Street the night before, were not enough to stop the service.
She said gas containers were delivered last minute to ensure hot coffees, along with muffins, kept diners’ hunger at bay.
“All the stops were pulled out,” Ms Brock said.
“It was a beautiful morning and the (scenic) setting was superb.”
Ms Bishop visited Brisbane from Perth before pre-polling booths were opened on Monday, ahead of the state election on Saturday, November 25.
She posted snaps on her Twitter account taken at Chelmer’s Western Magpies Australian Football Club and hairdresser Stefan’s awards night and product launch held at Brisbane later on Sunday.
