Jim Gibbins is a man of many talents. He’s an advocate of lifelong learning and enjoys being involved in his Hervey Bay community.
A railway man through and through, Jim enjoyed a 40-year career with Queensland Rail. Starting as an engine cleaner, Jim qualified as a driver and made history as the first driver to make the journey from Gladstone to Rockhampton in a train with two locomotives.
Jim continues to be busy in retirement, and domestic support provided in his Home Care Package leaves plenty of time for him to do the things he loves. As well as playing cards regularly with his Suncare Support Worker, Jim cooks, sews and crochets, and most notably, made fourteen bedspreads using intricate needlework.
