Great that tourist numbers are up now. After the Rock …

Comment on Town under pressure from visitor boom by David.

Great that tourist numbers are up now. After the Rock climb closes in October then I think that tourism to the Rock will down spiral.
Ohh … didn’t I hear the government say it was upgrading the airport there?
Seems a bit odd since tourism there will go down. And probably flow onto Alice also.
After all, why go here if you can’t climb the Rock? Enjoy it while we can. Tough times ahead?

Just another excuse for a day off from school. We have politicians to act on these things.
Sure, have a rally. But kids don’t vote and should be at school not protesting.
Leave it to the adults.
Half these young kids would have no idea what climate change actually is all about.

It would be better to spend the money reviving the town rather than adding another art gallery.
Over the past few years Mbantua art gallery has down sized. Why get another art gallery if there is not enough demand.
This town is dying. I have been part of Alice Springs for many years. In the past it had a thriving mall and many thing to do. Now it is becoming lawless and vacant.
Time to clean up the town … not waste money on another art gallery!
