Deputy Mayor Laurell Royes

Register of Interests

Laurell grew up on properties throughout Western Queensland before shifting to the Atherton Tablelands and completing her schooling. Having worked with a stock and station agent and many years in contract mustering camps throughout the Gulf and Peninsula, she has always maintained a strong connection to the bush.  Laurell was actively involved in the running of the Oasis Roadhouse prior to her and her partner Aaron Prior establishing a rural contracting business based in the Southern Etheridge Shire. The couple have established a grazing business based across several properties within the shire.  Laurell has been an active community member since moving to the shire 16 years ago and as a family they are involved in several events particularly in the Einasleigh community where they live. They have 3 children, and when she is not fulfilling teaching and bookkeeping duties, Laurell is an avid gardener and loves to be involved in the paddock. Laurell’s ambition to represent her community reflect her strong personal desire to ensure that her children get the same quality lifestyle and opportunities that generations within the Etheridge shire have been gifted before them.
