Mar­riner pas­sion doubt

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

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.
