Comment on Why do we not think BIG about tourism? by GB.

I’m spending a good amount of time here (30 days). I was expecting to be in a place blessed with wide expanses of land and beautiful, multiple trails up the ranges.
What I found instead is the most fenced off area that I visited in Australia. Everywhere I look there’s a fence. I cannot reach the ranges, I cannot walk in a riverbed, I cannot just stop the car and wander off a bit without finding a fence.
It feels like being in a boring amusement park where you are forced to follow a path.
Do you want to do good for Alice Springs? Buy up some stations and remove the damn fences.
