Comment on Alice vs The Rock, at a glance by Kathy.

The heart of the Centre has been broken with big commercial industry like the big companies and government funding dominating the Alice.
No more face to face personalised service any more, but internet and communicating through Facebook and web sites for tours and accommodation.
This for booking is good, but some people like to communicate and ask those reassuring questions and little help they may need.
People not just money are the losers as are the small businesses in town that are feeling this very much.
As for Uncle Huck, this town now thrives on tourism and events that come to the Centre. Do not bite the hand that feeds you, mate.

Alice vs The Rock, at a glance
All a big publicity stunt. Makes some do gooders feel good. You watch, with in a year or two, the Rock will be open to climb, but with another fee.
This is a joke and can be easily fixed. Customer service and face to face service would be a huge draw card for Alice Springs.
The Rock is so commercialised, and the service is something you would expect, but do not get for the price you pay for accommodation.
We travelled down in April and could not check in before 3:30pm and could not leave our luggage, so had to hang around the resort waiting.
After a long drive this is not acceptable.

The law is there for all, not just some and not others, or we are called racist.
Law braking is an offence and should be dealt with accordingly not a slap on the wrist and off you go, to do the same thing again, making other citizens lives a scary and wary place to live in Alice Springs.
If my kids were hanging around the town, I am sure the police would be making them their business.
