Study Gold Coast — The Way Forward: 2020 - 2021

2020 has been an incredibly demanding year, but with the recent announcements of the easing of restrictions and roadmaps showing the way forward we can now begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Lilly Luhrmann is a young woman of conviction. She is deeply concerned by the lack of support international students have received during COVID-19 from the Australian Government and as such has partnered with the State Government to launch the Study Queensland Luhrmann Appeal.

Lilly is the daughter of film director Baz Luhrmann and designer Catherine Martin, creators of hit films Strictly Ballroom, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, and has been based on the Gold Coast since late last year when her parents began working on their latest project, a biopic on the life of Elvis Presley which stars Tom Hanks.

Initiatives ranged from chef prepared frozen meals delivered directly to institutions to a camp for international boarding students who had been unable to see their parents for 6 months or more due to the extended lockdown.
