Over the past two weeks we've seen the best and worst of what Queensland has to offer, due to severe bushfires conditions.

While the threat is far from over, the worst of it is behind us and that's thanks largely to the men, women and thousands of volunteers across Queensland who worked tirelessly to keep their communities safe.

Whether you were fighting fires, setting up evacuation centres, behind the BBQ or simply being a friend-in-need – I say, thank you.

We must also acknowledge our interstate fire crews who assisted us in the firefighting efforts.

Their determination and passion to help their Queensland counterparts was truly inspiring.

Properties were saved and sadly some were lost, but it's the spirit and friendship among so many local communities that will help in the healing process.

My heartfelt condolences to those families who lost so much.

I have no doubt, with the support of your friends, families and communities, you will get back on your feet sooner rather than later.  You are in our thoughts.

I encourage your all this holiday season to embrace your local community and make a contribution no matter how big or small – because that's the Queensland way.
