Heard a rumour that Confusion and lack of management had ripped down the access to the beach at Toolina Cove as well as the flying fox can anyone confirm or deny this? It would be a pity as the fishing is Oz renowed as seen on Rex hunt and confirmed by Me

I was there in earlt November (caught 7 Big samon & saw a BIG Shark),
There were signs erected that CALM were going to pull down the ropes & ladders due to safty reasons (they were in poor condition) but didn't know about the flying fox (this is only for gear) PS the old bicycle flying fox circa 1987 was 1/2 way down so don't know if Calm through it down?
for more info contact CALM in Essperance 090 713 733

Perhaps CALM is getting worried about litigation re accidents? The climb down the 80m cliff face is certainly an experience, but there are risks - the ropes and ladders were a bit dodgy. And I guess there will be idiots trying to use the flying fox to descend. As you say, it'd be a pity if access has gone, it's a great place just to visit, let alone fish.

By the same token, this is a historic spot (one of the landing spots for poles when the original telegraph line was put in in the 1870's). Almost deserves a decent structure to get down, given its popularity.
CALM seem to have a reputation of pulling down anything put in by anyone other than themselves, then taking an eternity to replace it, if at all.
