On balancing rocks
Along with balancing rocks (CP, 25/8), parking needs to be provided on the western side of road at bridge over Mowbray River with an enclosed walkway on western side of bridge. This is a tourist area, get with the program.

Damien Settle. You’ve got no respect for traditional Aboriginal lands and if I was an Irukaadji person I would knock down the monstrosities you call art.
Yes, major political parties, you are on notice. We are over your failed policies on climate change, immigration, safe schools, overseas aid, failed health, failed energy, Watch the rise of the three minor parties.
On other matters
Can I suggest Julian Tomlinson (CP, 24/8) spend six months in a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan and see how he survives before commenting that we should not be accepting any more refugees. Perhaps a little more tolerance is required.
Julian Tomlinson (CP, 24/8). Another weekly beat up in extreme right-wing political scaremongering. The fact is it’s counter productive and plays into the hands of radicals, as Larissa Waters has pointed out. Both our major political parties have bipartisan views on security matters for Australia and doubt they will be spooked by redneck rhetoric.
Good on the two councils for starting the ball rolling regarding a more suitable date for Australia Day. While no-one would deny that Captain Cook’s “discovery” and the landing of the first fleet are important milestones in this nation’s history, a date needs to also recognise the people and their culture that existed prior to these events.
Have we seen any proof that Senator Wong has renounced her Malaysian citizenship or that Tanya Plibersek has renounced her Slovenian citizenship? Asking, because we’re not as close with Malaysia and Slovenia, as we are with Britain and New Zealand.
Hey Kev. (CP, 25/8) If Cook is so sacred in our history why is he 50 feet high, painted maroon and advertising pokies in Cairns?
Now that Steve Bannon has departed the White House, can we expect him to join the Cairns Post’s cabal of right wing columnists (apologies to Susie O’Brien).
Steven Miles (CP, 24/8). Big note yourself all you want about catching crocs. The only way to make waters safe is to shoot them until they learn to keep away from human habitation. They may have been here first but we have the guns.
When are pushbikes going to be banned from Port Douglas and Kuranda roads? Their dangerous behaviour put the rest of us at risk of an accident. Ride your bikes where there is some room.

Matters raised in Queensland parliament this week show disturbing similarities to the bad old days before the Fitzgerald Inquiry.
DRAWCARD: One reader believes these balancing rocks at Wangetti should be developed into a tourist attraction with parking and enclosed walkways.
