Double whammy for Far Northern tourist resorts

Local News

Not to be outdone by illegitimate Traditional Owners and the Cairns Post newspaper, Far Northern tourist operators have been trumped by the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council which has removed the car ferry from the Jardine River for maintenance.

The NPARC has removed the car ferry from the Jardine River until April 26 for overdue maintenance, causing the cancellation of many hundreds of tourist bookings.

Now in dry dock the only land link between the Top of Queensland and the Peninsula Development Road to the south is gone until April 26.

Holidaymakers who made bookings for the caravan parks and resorts north of the Jardine River have been forced to cancel causing struggling tourist operators to lose significant income desperately needed after last year’s unnecessary Covid disaster.

Popular tourist camping grounds such as Loyalty Beach, Seisia Camping Ground, Bamaga Resort and Punsand Bay resort will have to lay off staff.

Punsand Bay resort operator Rod Colquhoun said he has lost the remaining 100 bookings he had saved after assuring tourists the Tip was not closed following scurrilous reporting by the Cairns Post newspaper a week ago claiming the gates were closed to the Tip of Cape York.

“Apart from the fact there are no gates anywhere, the Tip could not be closed unless the council did it,” Mr Colquhoun said.

“I have just employed staff for an expected busy Easter. I have now sought legal advice to claim compensation for lost income.

“The council could have done maintenance on the ferry after the Easter holidays which would not have affected tourism and not caused a loss of income for the service stations, grocery shops, the pub, the baker and all the tourist operators.”

Thursday Island tourism and the island ferry operator would also suffer significant losses as the Easter break is the start of the tourist season.

NPARC Mayor Patricia Yusia said the council’s hands were tied because the car ferry had exceeded regulated hours for maintenance and did not meet safety standards.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. You can’t make this crap up. Surely all these things aren’t an accident for their timing? There are various groups that Want this section of Australia., and want it closed off from the rest of Australia & the people. Would they be willing to do “anything” to get it, including destroying the businesses and lives of Australians?

    The proof of the liability thing is in the two links below, where Dirty Comrade Dan’s dodgygovernment had to pay compensation to McDonald’s burger people, and also to a hardware crowd affected by one of the Victorian government’s interminable road projects: McDonald’s demands super-size compensation for losing busiest city store

    There cannot be any better example of the liability factor than the above twoexamples, Robert.Governments are all commercial operations-they are all incorporated, and so, as Anna von Reitz details in the lien document: they (no commercial operator) can trade unless they accept full commercial liability for all loss, harm and injury they perpetrate on anyone. This liability thing just has to get out, Robert.So many of your articles revolve around this liability thing-the bridge on the BarronRiver at Kuranda, which is a safety public issue; which means: if it is not fixed, the liability is on the relevant authority, and also goes right back up the chain to the enabling authority, which is the state government.And so on. You just have to bust the liability thing, because once all these crowds who do wrong are held to their liability, you will see actual change happening, because it is going to cost them heaps, and if they really stuff up, they are going to jail.

    Get on to it, Robert. Gary

  5. surely, if nothing else, the council is guilty of breach of contract. They are responsible for (contracted to), providing a ferry service across the river
