URUNGA ADDITIVES 2011

With my recent wondering about URUNGA and what looks like neglect to me, followed by the SEA LIDO RALLY I am taking a retro look at the Papers to see what its been like – previously. Surely some of the good can be brought into the present. A seaside town with no swimming. Get a  Grip ! WHY do people say “ ah well the effluent flows into the lagoon from the Sewage Treatment works” . What sort of explanation is that ? Hello ! Its 2011.

After a good bit of coastal travel between Brisbane and Bateman’s Bay – I am left wondering. Why take away all that was good about the past to treat the uncared for present and create a future without history.  Many of these other little towns have reclaimed their heritage and brought it back to life as well as incorporating it in modern developments.

There are some excellent URUNGA tales which are simply being lost. Lets dig ‘em out and see what they are. Check the PEGUMS’ new PILOT HOUSE book “ Crossing the Bar” at the Library in Urunga or Museum in Bello.  We have a fascinating history.

PS. I do not apologise for any duplication of data from earlier posts.

Back to other times :

URUNGA : THE LITTLE TOWN THAT TIME FORGOT.  TOWN OF SWIMMERS. LET US SWIM !
