Rabbits on Island

I am increasingly concerned about rabbits on the island. It is not the loved caged pets that are the (end) problem, it is the 3 separate sightings, in a fortnight, of 3 different rabbits, similar to those pictured, all hopping free.

Two sightings in the last 2 weeks were in my garden, up on Fire trail and the 3rd, up from Bells.

Palm Beach also has a big problem with rabbits, I do not like to imagine the outcome if those fluffy bunnies start to breed,  and unlike Palm Beach, we cannot blame anyone for the problem other than ourselves.

This is a great opportunity to dress up and wear your best bling (this also means the guys as well).

Offshore Commuter options

What are they for Mackerel ?

A subscriber, not a resident is writing to find out more about living offshore at Great Mackerel Beach in particular.
Basically someone might be able to shed some light on the commuting part of living at Great Mackerel.

For example;
  • How does the tie-up at the Mackerel Wharf work ? is the waiting list long etc ?
  • Real estate agents say the parking on beach is illegal however everyone does it - confusing ...
  • Also returning to main land what are the tie- up options  - Palm Beach, Church Point  or others ?
  • What Wharfs & what car parks are available ?
  • Can commuters go to Newport or Mona Vale .?
  • And anything else that may sound useful to know.
If any anyone can help here please send a note to the editor@scotlandisland.org.au and I'll pass on the contacts directly.
