Park­ing fees

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS AND VIEWS -

I read with dis­may that the Whit­sun­day Shire Coun­cil is to adopt park­ing fees for Port of Air­lie.

Don't they re­alise what a dis­in­cen­tive this is to both tourists and lo­cals alike?

Abell Point Ma­rina, and now Port of Air­lie, are the only mari­nas along the east coast of Queens­land where you have to pay to park your car.

And of course, I'll bet the fish­er­men can park their cars and trail­ers which take up to three times the space of a car and pay noth­ing. This is dis­crim­i­na­tion. If I want to go on a 10 day char­ter hol­i­day, I have to make spe­cial ar­range­ments with coun­cil. What a joke.

It shouldn't be all about the money, you know. Ju­dith Back­way MIDGEPOINT
