About the Cruise Ship terminal
The Cruise Ship Terminal and its surrounding developments have yet again surfaced after numerous promises from governments of all colours assuring the people of the Gold Coast that there will never be a Cruise Ship Terminal on their beach/spit/broadwater. Dr Stephen Gration as spokesperson for Save Out Spit puts the case against.
IN August 2006 the Queensland Government abandoned their plans to build a cruise ship terminal (CST) inside the Gold Coast Seaway and Broadwater. The decision followed four years and $5 million spent on investigations and reports into the economic, environmental, engineering and tourism feasibility of the ‘Gold Coast Marine Development Project’.
