The ABC reported on February 18 that the project director of the proposed Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort near Cairns, stated that he is hopeful new Treasurer Curtis Pitt will be able to move the project out of a “holding pattern”.

“I think having a senior minister who’s also a local Member at the Cabinet table can only be a good thing for the area.”

“We had discussions prior to the election with the then-Opposition Leader and the then-Shadow treasurer Curtis Pitt. … [They] indicated support for the project and in particular identified the job creation opportunities that were available.”

However, there has been a strong community campaign opposing this development. The campaign will need to continue to mobilise to counter the influence of corporate big business and hold the government to account.
