My family run the ferry over to northshore and we've been told that the council will keep it running for atleast another year. There will be some changes in the area but so far the camp will stay. The owner of the lease has been there 10 years and a few things have been let run to ruin. Future plan is to close between 1st and 3rd cuttings to make it safer on the beach. With the new development happening there soon it is only going to get busy over there in the future.

Just out of curiosity sake, what condition is the park in at the moment? I haven't stayed there for a long time, but wouldn't mind giving it a burst again some time soon.

Have a good one.

Good article in the Fin Review the other day on the change in the demographic of the Noosa visitors and what has happened to the businesses as a result. Could be they want to get back to forest to get value back.

Does anyone know more about the story that they might start charging a fee to drive on the beach?? last time I went over there in Dec the coast guard boys were handing out flyers saying something like sign the petition to stop it but I can't remember much about what the story was.....why is it always about making money when you want to go and enjoy nature?

Charging a fee to drive on the beach has been talked about for ages and will eventually be introduced. The council first want to upgrade the road to the third cutting and the cutting itself and then close the beach between the first and third cuttings to vehicles. Closing that section to vehicles seems a good idea as it is just too dangerous to let young children play on the beach over there now, and making all the traffic enter the beach via the third crossing won't make any difference to people wanting to drive up to the cooloola section to camp. I don't think charging a fee will make any difference to the number of vehicles using the beach, even this morning on a very wet weekend every other vehicle driving through Tewantin seemed to be a 4wd loaded with camping gear and fishing rods heading up the beach. Charging a fee is just going to make it too expensive for those of us who just like to nip over for a quick fish after work. ( just my two cents worth )

Jon, I see your point but I used to go up there nearly every day after school to get a quick fish in or just to have a drive on the beach....back when it was $2.50 or something on the ferry. I think allot of people that live close by won't have the money to go over for a weekend camp or something if they do that...and why do we have to pay the money? for tar roads and to put road signs up and to make it just like a public road. That's not what going to the beach is about for me. If it's going to keep going one of these days there will be a tar road on the beach to Rainbow with a toll bridge or something accross the river

I just want it to stay the same the way I know it
