"We need better messaging that the vaccine is in short supply and yes, you are next in the queue, but that may take a month or two before you get to the front of the queue, so to speak." - Prof. Peter Collignon #abc730
“It’s a three-hour trip virtually, and if you were just going up for that and didn’t have anything else to do, it’s a six-hour trip plus waiting time. For us, it’s just a nuisance to think that we have to go to Darwin to get the so-called jab.” – Peter Farnden #abc730

"This is not a problem that is unique to one side of politics, I've been clear about that ... and I would say [to women], nobody's asking you to keep secrets. Please know that you will be supported if you come forward." - @tanya_plibersek #abc730
"Anybody who has behaved in that way shouldn't be working in Parliament House. But the bigger question is, how do we make sure ... real action is taken to provide a safe work place for women that work in Parliament House?" - @tanya_plibersek #auspol #abc730

"This is the only home we've known. I've lived here for 24 years, my parents have been here for 29 years. It's all we've ever known, so it's very sad to see it all under water." - Rachel Dalrymple #abc730
"A lot of people here are really broken. A lot of people have lost everything ... there's people that have been living here 20, 30, 40 years, saying they have never seen something like this." - Tim Hitchens, volunteer firefighter in Port Macquarie #abc730
