Marriner passion doubt
DAVID Marriner and his “passion for Far North Queensland” have been revealed as a sham.
The Mirage purchase was a smokescreen for his real aim, to revive and expand the Ray plan for the marina and build it out totally with private townhouses and a hotel and destroy the present relaxed low-key ambience of the area.
There are enough new townhouses and resorts here now, with several large failed or slow developments.
Far North Queensland is just too far from our large cities for large conferences, and in my own conferences from Melbourne, most people found the airfare and registration too expensive, and this was similar for Perth.
