The webinars are limited to 100 per session.

Mr Pitt said that the deal was proving to be a "game changer" for the region.

We are confident that with the strong commitment by government, private investment will follow from the opportunities and confidence created."

Cr Seymour said the Deal was charting a path for Bundaberg and Hervey Bay's economic development, resilience and liveability.

"The Hinkler Regional Deal is a very significant investment for our region by Council and the Australian Government, so I encourage residents to tune in and find out all about it for themselves," Mayor Seymour said.

Hinkler Regional Deal Local Partnership Forum Chair Scott Rowe will facilitate the webinars and said they would provide a timely update on the status of the game-changing projects.

"Community engagement is an important part of ensuring we maximise opportunities for the region, and these webinars provide a great opportunity to drive the Deal forward," Mr Rowe said.

"These information sessions will complement the Hinkler Regional Deal Local Partnership Forum and Executive Board, which will be both meeting to discuss the region and progress being made under the Deal.
