Life becoming a beach at Four Mile
I AM writing to voice my thoughts on the terrible state of our beautiful Four Mile Beach at present. I have many guests from overseas come and stay at my bed and breakfast; we are close to the walkway and the one thing I ask them to do is walk to the beach as a must-see attraction.
I cannot help but think, this being a tourist town, compare it to Surfers Paradise or Noosa, these tourist towns know how to look after visitors and start by looking after their beaches.
I would like to see once a week a tractor pulling a large sieve up and down the beach to clean all the litter off it, as they do down south
This would also clean up the seaweed, sticks, opened coconuts - and can we not throw the opened coconuts back into the bush to help regenerate the foreshore?
An entrepreneurial person could keep all the seaweed and sell it for garden mulch; I understand it is excellent for this.
So how about it? I am not just talking about the front of the Surf Life Saving Club, but all the way south as far as possible. I think we should remember that this town relies on the tourist so let’s start by having a beautiful beach all year round.
