Ballina Dragons invite public to have a go

The Ballina Dragon Boat Racing Club is having a come and try day on Saturday 6 March, on the Richmond River at Ballina.

I notice someone intends to ruin the scenic beauty of the Brunswick Boat Harbour by filling the entire water area with finger wharves: boats won’t even be able to turn around there any more.

Next someone intends to trash the little park where the Brunswick Market is held, by developing that public park: outrageous!

Finally, someone thinks they can now develop the little Railway Park in Byron with commercial development – in that tiny little park: crazy!

  1. Your view which I respect is illconceived. Have you been to the marina area recently to see the works done to create a spectacular view from the old slipway?
    Well the area has been rejuvenated for locals and visitors to enjoy. The rehashing of the marina may encourage lone Yachtsmen from the deep blue to drop in and say G’day!
    Consider the marina not as a development, think of it as repairing and revitalising a piece of maritime history! I enjoy old boats “if they could only talk” and “Salty dogs while they still walk” (maybe we can create a land mark showcasing logging and maritime history of the area)
    Dont object, we all should step back, take a breath and have a think about it, you’ll realise the positives will out way the negatives.
