What does An­zac day mean to you?

His­tory, peo­ple who died for us for our fu­ture, my great grand­fa­ther went to war and was lucky enough to re­turn home, it was a huge sac­ri­fice for fam­i­lies and men to go to war, they should never be for­got­ten. I hope my chil­dren and the next gen­er­a­tions to come con­tinue to Be a part of An­zac day, lest we for­get ;-)

one must also re­mem­ber those In­dige­nous Aus­tralians who died in colo­nial fron­tier con­flicts and fought along­side An­zacs as un­paid soldiers - Lest We For­get

F all an­other bloody

pub­lic hol­i­day

Surely a bet­ter sys­tem for traf­fic con­trol for road works be­tween Agin­court and Bar­rier St can be de­vised? Why not block off east of the Agin­court round­about to Four Mile round­about and de­tour all traf­fic via Agin­court/St Crispins and Nau­tilus Streets. I am sure driv­ers would pre­fer to drive a longer route than sit still for 12 mins as I did this morn­ing. Can’t wait to see how the new round­about con­struc­tion on the High­way (sched­uled for six weeks in Sept) is go­ing to dis­rupt us - right in the mid­dle of peak sea­son.

I tried to count the num­ber of hang­ers-ons and work­ers this morn­ing, but lost count, but prob- ably some­where near 40, there was 10 stop go peo­ple. Your route so­lu­tion makes a lot of sense. With re­gard to the high­way round-a-bout -right in the mid­dle of the crush, one mil­lion tons equals al­most 5000 tons per day equals 125 trucks a day. Great tim­ing!

Right Port Dou­glas.....what have you got to of­fer me?? Loads of Jobs I hope!! Shark sleeps on a #scuba #dive / #div­ing #GreatBar­ri­erReef #portdou­glas Found this one sleep­ing un­der an over­hang. Are we be­sot­ted with re­al­ity TV as Port Dou­glas Car­ni­vale be­comes awash with ex’s from the Voice and MKR, what hap­pened to the real stars?
