Water, or should I say - the lack of! The Cassowary Coast is running low on water and with no rain in sight, our water intakes are really starting to take a dive. We may be the wettest region in Australia, but we are about to be hit hard with level 3 water restrictions.
Consumption levels are high and supply levels are depleting by the day. We are currently using two times more than what we should be, with the main culprits being sprinklers, toilets doing full flushes and shower heads. We need you, our residents, to start to be more water wise. At the moment, water is the new gold!
Just last weekend we came together as a region to celebrate one hundred years’ since the signing of the Armistice. It was an honour to share a moment of silence next to current and ex-service men and women to pay our respects. All events on the Cassowary Coast were well patronised and well received.
Well done to Paronella Park which won the People’s Choice Award and the Cultural Tourism Award at this year’s Queensland Tourism Awards. Also, an outstanding effort to its owners, Mark & Judy Evans who won the award for Outstanding Contribution by an Individual. This is testament to your hard work and dedication, and I would like to thank you for continuing to help put the Cassowary Coast on the tourism map.
And a big congratulations to all Cassowary Coast year twelve graduates who have finished their schooling years. I wish you all well in your future endeavours.
