Why don't we use the $40k from the Qld govt to build a giant fibreglass crocodile to straddle the entrance to Nelly Bay Harbour. Tully has its frog on gumboot, other places their giant pineapples, crayfish etc, why not a Whitey for Maggie. If the croc was constructed to be rearing on its hind legs, Mr. Bowbyes could take people for joy flights around it or even use its snout as a heliport, and all the extra visitors would make up for the amateur approach MI tourism operators have shown to date. If such basics as signage, brochures and websites are a problem, why on earth did these people not get together months/years ago to arrive at a solution?

Interesting that fluffy uses the royal plural "we" in regard to spending the government money. Amateurism by self selection?
If there must be a giant, rearing crocodile, put it under the water with the Anne Bunnell memorial dogproof fence around it as a 24/7 dive training site. Two, three, four birds (duck included), one stone.
