Revised 2017 Ferry Fares


Thank you dear Scribbly Gum 

The beautiful tree by the BBQ in Catherine Park was sadly removed last week.


This beautiful tree has been there as long as anyone can remember. Sheltering and shading us and providing a great climbing tree for many generations of our children.

She recently dropped a large branch on the picnic table and another large branch fell in the same spot a year ago. No one was hurt.

Council's Tree Preservation Officer assessed the tree and ascertained she was diseased and had to go.

She will be replaced by two trees in cooler weather.

Thank you beautiful tree, you have served us well.
