2014-11-07 – To Townsville – Ironing out the bugs

Bit of a hot trip up to Townsville to set up for the 150th anniversary of the Port. The kayak is right out the front.

Bowen, near the Abbott Point coal loader was on the way. I am told that there are reef passionate people in Bowen, maybe 10% and there are pro Abbott Point people, again maybe 10% and then there are those in the middle.

What I have found, is that this area is not like the northern rivers of NSW. I thought most people would be passionate about their reef but it seems to me that there is a disconnection in very many places and the saviours are  a small minority.
