Cruise ship terminal in the broadwater

Nov 03, 2012 - 11:46 AM - by Fast Break
What does everyone think about the planned cruise ship terminal and development in the Broadwater?

I have been fishing the Broadwater all of my life and I have real concerns about what impact the planned development will have on the area.

My personal thought is why can't they just leave it alone so that the thousands of people who use that area will still have it to use for future generations.

I am concerned that the development will destroy fish habitat including the banks that we use to collect bait and may also affect access to the area.

Just wondering what everyone else thinks.

Lying pollies ignore boaties ... Again

Nov 02, 2014 - 11:58 PM - by SUPERDAFF
So the current Federal Government announces another fuel hike and once again, opines "a very minimal impact on car running costs", BUT ONCE AGAIN, NEVER EVEN MENTIONS THE WORD 'BOAT'.

We're about to pay even more money for fuel in the form of a deceitful increase in fuel excise which already has GST levied on it - another 'something' which never should have happened. We've effectively got a tax on top of a tax and in some places, a road levy as well. (Some boats never even go on the road).

Now we've got on increase in the levy under the tax under the GST. Give me a break. It's the step ladder of deceit.

Queensland Labor stole the 8 cents a litre fuel subsidy from you after promising black and red not to; the Queensland LNP was so sanctimoniously 'outraged', that it decided to scream blue and black but then do absolutely NOTHING about that decision and keep your 8 cents a litre instead.

Now the Federal LNP Coalition is... [Read More]

New addition to Moreton Bay Artificial Reef

Queensland’s recreational fishers are set to benefit from a new addition to the Harry Atkinson Reef, when the Newman Government scuttles a decommissioned boat next week.
The Queensland Government has already established six artificial reefs in Moreton Bay Marine Park, at a cost of $2.25 million.
The motor-less, 60 tonne, 26 metre delivery boat, donated by Port of Brisbane has been degreased and steam cleaned by a professional contractor, and has also had additional materials added to provide extra shelter for fish.
It will be scuttled next week and form part of the 34 ha Harry Atkinson Artificial Reef, located 7 km... [Read More]
