Sharp rises in parks fees, mining policy in doubt

Fees for camping in the most popular locations of the West MacDonnell
Ranges, one of several parks in Central Australia being transferred
from public to Aboriginal ownership by the NT Government, have been
increased sharply at very short notice.

Meanwhile today (Wednesday) Shadow Environment Minister Kezia Purick
says Minister for Central Australia, Karl Hampton, is refusing to
confirm Territory Labor’s policy on the co-existence of mines in
Territory national parks.

Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore

 

Sometimes
I feel like Dorothy looking down at her little dog and saying, ‘Toto,
we’re not in Kansas anymore’. Except I’m saying to my little black cat,
‘Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore’. With this past week’s
sunny days and warm dry winds I’ve several times thought myself to be
near the beach. I don’t know what it is exactly, the smell of sunscreen,
the fact that it’s miles away or the Buffle grass rustle like waves to
the shore.  Either way as pleasant as this has been it has also
induced a sort of panic at the thought of what am I going to do when
summer really does hit? I realised it was deadly necessary to try and
scope out swimming spots in Alice Springs.
