Hotel Australasia tender
This old pub needs to be part of the new Eden. Just needs someone creative behind the project.
If Eden's only future going forward is tourism, and it is, then the restored Australasia will be a critical component to its future success.
It was all funded at the start before everyone jumped in and stopped it.
It is crucial the facade is restored. I would have liked it to stay under BVSC control and be a centrepiece for our town. So sad we have to nervously await the outcome of a tender who maybe is looking at the dollars and not the potential for this building long term.
Why should tourists to Eden be encouraged to go to Merimbula for entertainment, taking their tourist dollars with them? This is a down-right poor indictment, too, of the councillors who said they were standing for the interests of Eden in the elections, if they voted for this.
Simple add a $10 fireworks tax to all caravan park bookings over that period. 500bookings and it's funded.
Clearly a kick in the guts for Eden. Last year the caravan parks were packed bringing good money into the area. Surely the council could see the viability in funding such an event keeping valuable tourists happy and interested.
Defence expansion plan
I lived with the petrol tanks on the lookout for decades. They could have gone up any time. But they didn't. Now I live near the Richmond air base and live ammo training ground. Never a problem.
It’s nothing to worry about, one can only hope it creates more jobs for people who unemployed in the Eden area.
