Darlington, Maria Island.
Looks like a bit of revegetation would do the trick.
Now where are the unemployed who are going to be forced to work for the dole.
I would go for tree planting there if I had the chance, pity I work.
Maria Island is the key to the success of the Triabunna Area for tourism. It does not require a 5*Resort to bring the numbers via ferry, either for daily excursions or extended camping, just more flexibilty of movement with the benefit of enjoyment for families and grey nomads over the Island beyond the PWS enforced lockdown in historic Darlington. Most visitors are incapable of being equipped as serious bushwalkers visitors visiting the Island
I cannot possibly see Mr Wotif’s el cheapo rejuvenation of ugly buildings and structures within the former Chip Mill metal scrap yard complex to develop a Centre for organic Green leftie energetic intellectual artistic culturism to attract stop overs by tourists and for national conventions beside the town of Triabunna.
The other environmental shocker remains as the Solis/Greg Norman Golf Resort development fronting the Louisville Road.
Never in my wildest imagination would I ever imagined the extensive clearing of native vegetation and spot gravel removal within a forested block that has a most prominent landscape along the nearly coastal region with views of the of magnificent Maria Island. Future remains as unclear.
I will present my Maria Island report shortly, as time allows me to.
Yes I basically agree with Pete Godfrey #1 some tree planting near the forbidding and windswept Telegraph Office site to replicate some of its original vegetation.
Thanks Editor, for the opportunity to comment beyond the gridlock of events affecting Triabunna.
There are 2 pronunciations of the word ‘Maria’.
There is ‘Maria’ as used as a womans name in West Side Story and there is ‘Maria’ as used in the term ‘black maria’ or prison van. Interestingly, Tasmanians have corrupted the original pronunciation which was the womans name.
Major access improvements are necessary to bring more of our every day deserving visitors to Maria Island
Currently wide spread visitation seems to be hampered by the over lording exclusivity of Maria Island Walks which costs $2350 over four days.
Whilst I dont a expect 5* resort on the Island the SBG Council should be forcing the upper hand on the Liberal State Government in liason with PWS to construct a jetty at Encampment Cove to enable visitors to camp, bush walk and generally the experience by have a wider choice not just limited to Darlington.
For those willing to respond to Guy Barnett’s Triabunna Development Opportunities Inquiry, Maria Island is the most obvious key visitation experience that would make Triabunna a short stopover for visitors.
More later when a new article on Triabunna is posted on TT. Cheers RCH
