Comment on Have Minister, Tourism Central Australia acted on tragedy? by Evelyne Roullet.

I agree with you Matt, especially having worked in the tourism industry. I can say that I have heard everything when giving advises some: I am on holidays, I do what I like! I am old enough to know what to do! I never wear a hat and I am not going to start to please you! Are we in a police state that you are asking me what time I will be home?! Do you think I need so much water? You want me to wet my pants?
“The Australian Outback can seem so remote and isolated and planning your self-drive adventure requires a lot of preparation.”
This is nearly on all traveling websites.
Advice from the site of the Alice Springs Tourism Center:
1.Bushwalking
Check the length and difficulty and if walking without a guide, tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Wear protective footwear, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent, carry a map and plenty of water. When walking read maps and signs, stay on the track, behind safety barriers and away from cliff edges.
2.Dehydration and Sun Protection
Dehydration is a common condition suffered so increase your daily fluid intake to approximately one litre of water per hour. Many parks and reserves do not have a supply of drinking water so always carry water with you.
The sun in the Red Centre is strong, always wear a shirt, hat, sunglasses, and a minimum SPF 30+ sunscreen lotion.
Apply sunscreen regularly, even if cloudy, and stay out of the sun during the middle of the day when the sun is strongest.
What more do we need? We talking about adults who should know how to organise a trip in a foreign land.

Gallery: The Gunner spin goes on
Alice should have a cultural centre and let’s leave the art gallery to Adelaide.
Art been part of the culture, we will have both.
I fail to understand why Mr Gunner blames the Town Council. The Town Council is us the residents and ratepayers, and we said no to Anzac Oval. What is so hard to understand?


Thinking about Dreaming
Thank you, Dick. I hope this article will be followed by more, because it reflects and explains the roots of the Aboriginal culture.
We talk of art gallery, cultural center, but the majority of the residents of our town have no understanding of what it means to be an Aborigine.
It has been said about Bill Harney that he was the only white man who could think like an Aborigine. Whoever said that did not know you.


A student should have led the chants: Jimmy Cocking
@ Formerlocal4: I wrote: “Do not believe in the climate change action.” The word action makes all the difference.


Help from fracking campaigner, or manipulating students?
NEWS: Ms Pietsch was telling them what to say and how to say it and how often to say it. She is guiding them. She was giving instructions to the supposedly independent student protesters.
OK, but if no-one had led the chant it would have been a cacophony and whingers would have said: “Could this have been organised better?”

It is not worth getting your knickers in the knot for this.
The people who do not believe in the climate change action would have found something else to diminish the value of the protest.
Personally it would have been better to have the protest after school or on a week-end to demonstrate that young people are willing to give their time for what they believe in.
