There was a mixed response to Karratha’s new upper-floor Qantas Lounge opening last week.
Great improvement on the last one. Would be nice if we had a real coffee machine like the city lounges. Natalie Singe
I think the dress code will keep most people out. Thongs, boardies and t-shirts need not apply. Adrian Lemke
We don’t care about a new lounge! We care about cheaper flights! Tracey Colomer
A petition to move a proposed mental health step-up, step-down facility has been doing the rounds online. The current site is across the road from a licensed venue
and a primary school. Why are people so frightened of mental illness? Three out of five people will experience the symptoms in their lifetime. Get comfortable with it. Martin Burt
My only issue is the Department of Health have a huge campus in the town centre. Would it not make more sense there if it is for intensive support. If it is a low-care facility, any house in town will do nicely. Carolyn Biar
A plan is underfoot to turn Cossack into a living historical village after Ngarluma Yindjibarndi Foundation took over management and promotion of the ghost town.
It’s currently so underutilised it’s a
shame, it’s a fascinating place but just left to go to waste currently. Seems the plan is to showcase both the indigenous and non-indigenous heritage of the area which is wonderful. Camille Barton
So does that mean there’s going to be white men with Aboriginal women and kids in chains walking around? Because my mob were the slave divers who were forced to dive for pearls and were bought and sold as assets of the boats. Tyson Mowarin
