QLD Labor Party again wasting taxpayer money on conservationalist fantasy land
Katter’s Australian Party leader, Robbie Katter, is concerned the Department of Environment and Science’s land buy-up in Northern Queensland is leading to an inevitable locking up of the Cape and pushing out generational graziers.
The Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Science has emerged as the buyer of Bramwell Station, a cattle station and eco-tourism facility on Cape York.
Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter said, “We don’t have the cash to be spending money on pointless environmental exercises, that will arguably deliver poorer outcomes than if the land were to remain in private hands.
“Why is the Government using taxpayer money to buy up cattle stations when there are far more pressing issues that require this money.
“Our Regional Road Network is in ruin and people can’t even get dialysis without driving less than four-five hours.
“Regardless these stations have a purpose, one that supports local economies and a large number of in-direct jobs in transport and processing, the land should be kept in the hands of Graziers to preserve a key industry that supports Queensland families and rural communities.”
DES bought the 131,900 hectare (325,932 acre) soon after it was passed in for $11.3 million on an online auction. The actual sale price has not been disclosed but is understood to be about $11.5m.
Positioned as the last stop before the tip of Cape York at the start of the famous Old Telegraph Line four-wheel-drive track, Bramwell was run by Wendy Kozicka and Vince Bowyer, who have owned the property for the past 20 years.
Kennedy MP, Bob Katter, said, “The State Government policy was to lock up Cape York and turn it into a big zoo, treating us North Queenslanders like monkeys.
“Anyone who thought it was a good idea was badly deceived.
“How will locking it up and turning it into ‘wilderness’ be good for you? Will you get a job out of it? Will you make money out of it? Will you be able to run cattle?” Mr Katter said.
“They are destroying the region’s economic base and making the people who live up there be performing monkeys for southern tourists. It will be our role to wait on tables and clean toilets.”
Robbie Katter, said, “When properties and other cattle stations of similar nature are privately the owned, they pay taxes, rates and create revenue for the Government on top of local employment in regional communities.
“Turning it into a conservationist oasis removes any real productivity and greatly reduces employment opportunities.
“Graziers abide by strict guidelines that require them to maintain a well performing operation, including maintaining natural flora and fauna and grass.
“The Government is sacrificing our right to prosperity and our opportunities to prosper so they can feel warm and cosy about the environment.
“I would like to hear from the Minister, hand on heart, say that all the land that has been acquired by the Government, over the last two decades, is in better shape than it was prior to its purchase.”
Editor: The ownership of Bramwell including its leased roadhouse will be handed over to local indigenous groups. We are taking bets now, about how long the 15 year old established business will last in the hands of either the Cape York Land Council, Balkanu or local Prescribed Body Corporations owned and managed by indigenous people.
We don’t blame the owners for selling at auction to the highest bidder, but the Labor Party governing corporation in Brisbane was the only bidder.

The labor party is being used by the evil global cabal, and the proof is there, it’s obvious on many fronts. One of the crimes these evil scum are trying to push forward with is a global food shortage. Sounds like conspiracy theories right? Well wrong, in the states,farmers are being pressured to cut back on the crops they produce, eg: subsidies being withdrawn etc, the labor party also had the dam wall reduced at Paradise dam in QLD, thus effecting the amount of water allocated to farmers in the region. And I do mean this is a significant drop of available water. These same farmers produce sugar, for both domestic and overseas buyers, while other now vulnerable farmers produce Macadamias, fresh fruit, vegetables, and some breed livestock. These hard working farmers have been told the amount of water allocated to them is reduced, dramatically. That vile cockroach in Vic, also wanted to charge livestock breeders for the gases their livestock produce, as to him in his evil wisdom described it as toxic or hazardous waste. And this, can you not see that there is an actual war on humanity being perpetrated by the global cabal and the evil weak puppets in government around the world? First, we have the “virus”, then the death shot called a vaccine, “to keep you safe”, as well as a well planned food shortage. People, seriously, look this stuff up. You can see the chess pieces being moved into place. There is perhaps more, much more, but the Georgia Guidestones, have they,re plans written in stone, and if you have no idea of them , then once again, look it up, research. God bless you all, and may light win this war over evils darkness, as I feel in my soul we will win, we just have to be both informed and strong. Take care. We are one.
It’s our money if it’s tax payers money. Its not theirs isn’t that right Ed. They don’t pay tax so they can f..k off. The Great Reset will see a lot of Land doing nothing.
They’ll probably get Queeny out & run hunger games tournaments out there. She’s into that sort of thing the sick demonic hag.
Better warn our brothers & sister’s. Although I reckon the Kangaroo finger will give them satanists a run for their money.
Tick tock Satan.
Your time is running out.
Well, I suppose some consolation is at least the Chinese didn’t aquire it.
