TIME TO MOVE
Tourism entrepreneur and owner of the budding Mt Mulligan resort, the Daintree Eco Lodge and Village Hotel, Chris Morris is moving his 33.5m charter yacht Flying Fish to Port Douglas. Mr Morris says that since moving the luxury vessel to Townsville last year he has not had a single booking out of the city. Hence the shift to Port Douglas where he feels business will be brisk during the approaching tourist season. He couldn’t afford to have the multi-million dollar vessel sitting around doing nothing for another 12 months. Flying Fish was built for party-boy Sydney investor Rene Rivkin in 1991. It comes with eight guest berths all with marble ensuites. Up here in Port, of course, it can rub bows, or whatever boats do, with the likes of John Morris’s (no relation) own blue water cruiser. from around Atherton on Friday. Police were surprised when on searching the property thye found 76 electoral advertising signs. Sergeant Matt Duncan of Atherton Station said the thefts were not politically motivated. “We were all surprised by the sheer number of the signs the man had at his property,” Sgt Duncan said. “We will be alleging he took them with the intention of re-using them to advertise a business he operates.” Police have issued a 65-year-old Millaa Millaa man with a Notice to Appear for one count of stealing. .
