Bill Shorten focuses on North Queensland

Four weeks out from Federal Election and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has chosen to temporarily base himself in Townsville. 

He will be visiting the Liberal held seat of Leichhardt in Cairns on Monday and switching his campaign message from Health to Jobs. 

It's expected Mr Shorten will promise a $200 million-dollar package to boost regional tourism and reiterate his pledge to tear up a controversial $444 million-dollar grant to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, if elected. 

The Labor Leader will also be forced to reveal whether or not he'll allow the Adani coal mine to go ahead.
