FERRY HAPPY

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

IT’s pleas­ing to read that more peo­ple are trav­el­ling on the ferry to South Perth.

I was also pleased that a small tourist ferry is now op­er­at­ing from El­iz­a­beth Quay to Claise­brook.

I have al­ways been an ad­vo­cate of us­ing our river for pas­sen­ger fer­ries for plea­sure and an al­ter­na­tive way to get to the city and sport­ing venues.

A good start would be a ferry ser­vice to Point Wal­ter ev­ery hour with con­nect­ing buses from Fre­man­tle and the suburbs.

Point Wal­ter is a very a pleas­ant part of the river to visit with its safe, pro­tected sandy beach and lots of shady trees.

Tourism and trans­port are very im­por­tant to our state – let’s use our river more.

FRANK GRANGER, Ap­ple­cross.
