Time to think outside box
CONSTRUCT world class multi-ability mountain bike trails and enthusiasts will come from all over.
Small towns have been turned around through this investment — see Tasmania (Blue Derby trails, near Derby in Tasmania pictured below) and Rotorua as examples.
Jan, Anula LONELY DEATHS OF FOUR OUTBACK TRAVELLERS
■ It shouldn’t have happened. But unless you live or travel these roads fairly frequently many people don’t realise how remote it is. These places if you get in trouble there’s no help full stop. I never drive out of Alice without at least 15lt of water and food. Tristan Webster
■ These people that perished, may they rest are in peace, were locals that know the conditions and should have the knowledge. Unfortunately the weather most likely played a big part in their decision to walk for help, this is another reason why Telstra should have phone coverage Australia wide. Mark Sullivan
■ Very sad,a terrible way to die. Tim Browne
■ My condolences to all involved. Just tragic. Amy Louise
■ A plastic 20-litre container costs bugger all & you have it forever! Fill up used plastic coke bottles of you have to. It’s tragic because the ability to carry water is so easy & makes so much sense. Why can’t the communities make carrying water a rule? Robert Peterson
■ Unbelievably sad, so very heartbreaking. RIP beautiful little family xx. Serena Feef Reen Coleman
■ Too tragic. This should never have happened. Jillian Reid
■ This is so tragic for a young family. Kirsten Williams
■ No matter what they did, this is still such tragic news! Condolences to the friends and families to these very young people!! People on here telling what they should and shouldn’t have done! My God, heartless much? But how could you not give sympathy? Just goes to show how ugly some people’s souls are! Krystle Anderson DARWIN CASINO SELLS FOR $188m TO US GIANT ■ Bring back minimum dress standards. John Leafe
■ How about better odds of winning. And go back to the original keno balls. Ralph Ross
■ Rip up the 70s decor and carpet. Hannah Curran
■ Gosh I hope they change the look of the outside of it. Renee Stevens
■ Hopefully some nicer food? Juanita Long
■ Oh no, not another overseas owner buying up Australia!!! Una M Bartlett Robinson
■ Worked there when it changed from Dimond beach to MGM grand. Brenden Rowell
■ It’s been ‘drab’ for years ..... ever since the casino removed the most honest game there ...... ’two-up’ .... !! Ray Medlicott NO I don’t go there so I couldn’t care less.
CHRIS HURT, MALAK
YES If they clean it up it’ll look nice. The outside looks outdated.
