In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Proposed Bali alcohol ban may impact Australian visits
Indonesia Institute president Ross Taylor said, “legislation proposed by two Islamic parties banning the consumption of all beverages containing more than 1% alcohol is considered more of a worry [than the fate of the Bali Nine drug smugglers], and could become law as early as the end of this year, if backed by President Joko Widodo.
Also of concern is a review of foreign property ownership.
The number of Australians visiting Bali over the past two months was up 16.7% over the same period last year, with more Australians arriving than any other nationality.
