How about park­ing and bus trans­fer?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Re Rob La­paer’s let­ter (17/8/17), years ago at a coun­cil meet­ing I sug­gested a park­ing and bus trans­fer ser­vice like Mossman Gorge for self drives from the south of the river to Cape Trib.

This hap­pens in many other na­tional parks around the world and works fine and the money goes back into the area . This also will help with traf­fic and speed­ing mo­torists and pre­vent­ing road kills as well as more work for lo­cals and busi­nesses alike. It would need lit­tle plan­ning and would boost the area with less en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age. Rob also states that the ferry is over­priced. If you have been to other parks and tourist des­ti­na­tions in Aus­tralia and around the world its quite cheap. And if you re­mem­bered back a few years there was a sur­vey handed out to all who drove on the ferry as well as those in guided tours and over 70 per cent were more than happy to pay the fee and happy to pay more if the money went back into the area for in­fra­struc­ture and buy back of more land.
