The visits into Central Queensland Airports by Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Beech B350 Super King Air turboprops continued on Wednesday 21 February.

During the morning, A32-439, again flying as "Dingo 15", again flew North from RAAF Base Amberley and was noted completing more survey work within the Wide Bay Training Area.  And again, like it did yesterday (see Blog post below), A32-439 then continued North and landed at Rockhampton Airport for some time before later returning to Amberley.

Meanwhile, in the early afternoon, fellow RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-437 as "Dingo 32", flew South from Townsville and also landed at Rockhampton Airport for some time.  It was later noted returning to Townsville.

A Pair of RAAF Super King Airs and a RAAF C-27J Spartan all noted at CQ Airports Central Queensland Plane Spotting

A interesting trio of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) turboprop aircraft were all noted completing airwork and passing through some Central Queensland Airports over the last couple of days.

In the early part of the afternoon on Tuesday 20 February,  (RAAF) Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft A34-007, which was flying as "Wallaby 37", was noted flying North from RAAF Base Amberley and completed some airwork at Maryborough Airport.  It then flew back to Amberley on the no-communication low-level jet route via the Eastern side of Fraser Island then down the South Queensland coast.

It also appeared that also on Tuesday 20 February, fellow RAAF C-27J Spartan A34-006 "Wallaby 25", was operating out of Amberley.

During the later part of the morning also on Tuesday 20 February, RAAF Beech B350 Super King Air A32-439 as "Dingo 15",  was also noted flying North from Amberley and then completed some aerial survey work in the Wide Bay Training Area before flying further North and landing at Rockhampton Airport for a period of time.  A32-439 then returned to Amberley.

Another RAAF Super King Air A32-671 as "Dingo 24", was noted departing Longreach Airport for Townsville also on Tuesday 20 February.  It possibly arrived from the South late on Monday 19 February, although this is not 100% confirmed.

And finally, also at Longreach Airport, also on Monday 19 February, RAAF Super King Air A32-339 as "Beaufort 12", passed through, arriving from the South and later departing to RAAF Base Tindal (Katherine).

Making Water From Whine: The Murray Darling Basins Magic Numbers Machine "IndyWatch Feed National"

So South Australians, youre pee-ed off about New South Wales and Queensland stealing all your water upstream? Solution, with a bit of biblical fish and loaves magic, we just change the numbers. Maryanne Slattery explains.

Last Wednesday was Judgement Day for the management of the Murray-Darling Basin. It was a win for the river to the tune of 70 billion litres of water, but it was a stunning rebuke for state and federal governments as well as the Murray-Darling Basin Authority.

Federal, NSW and Victorian Governments threatened fire, brimstone and the End of Days or at least the end of the Basin Plan if the Senate didnt approve the Murray-Darling Basin Authoritys (MDBA) plans to let corporate irrigators in NSW and Queensland use more water at the expense of downstream uses, outlined in its Northern Basin Review.

Like the Bible, many people talk about the Northern Basin Review, but very few have actually read it. If last weeks outraged politicians and lobbyists had actually studied the amendment, they might have seen the Senates rejection coming.

The Senate saw that there were huge problems with transparency and the standard of analysis in the Review. While the reporting of the Senates rejection has focused on the proposal to reduce water for the environment, critics of the Review have long focused on problems in its methodology, process and claims of political interference.

The Northern Basin Review was finalised in 2016 after four years of science and socio-economic analysis. It recommended allowing irrigators to take from northern rivers 70 gigalitres more than in the original Plan. Of course, 70 gigalitres more for irrigation in northern NSW and Queensland means less water for the environment and people in places like Broken Hill and South Australia.

But how much less? Evaporation, seepage and other uses mean the extra volume is reduced along the way.

After four years of study, and just two weeks before the Northern Basin Review was released, the MDBA estimated 70 gigalitres more for northern irrigators meant 35 less for the Menindee Lakes near Broken Hill and 20 less for South Australia. This infuriated the South Aus...

Restoring oyster reefs for better fish life Friends of Lake Weyba

Plump Noosa River oysters may be back on the market in the coming years as local researchers help restore the health and marine biodiversity by opening 14 fish hotels

There has been no commercial oyster harvesting in Noosa estuary system since about 650 growing cages were removed from Lake Weyba in the 1960s, but now oyster reefs consisting each of nine biodegradable coconut fibres and recycled shells, are back. And University of the Sunshine Coast marine ecologist Dr Ben Gilby helping with the ambitions $1.5 million Bing Back the Fish project, is excited to find a marine fightback has already started to happen.

Increases have been noted at the reefs of the many fish familiar species like bream, flathead, tailor and whiting, attracted to these structures. And that will increase once the oyster spats still common to the river, start to bind with the old shell structures.

February 21 On This Day in Australian History "GroovUs Feed Anews"


1802 - HMS Investigator was misplaced (some say lost but I believe it will resurface down the back of someone's couch) whilst under the command of Matthew Flinders, who was stickybeaking about the coastline in the vicinity of present day Port  Lincoln. A water party, comprising two officers and a crew of six left the ship to land on the mainland and was not seen again.

1802 - Corio Bay, near Geelong, discovered John Murray poking about its shoreline.

1804 - Niberlooner was renamed Sullivan's Cove (Tassie) on this date when Lt David Collins cast his baby blues over the area.
Not to be confused with Sullivan Bay, Victoria, a settlement Lt David Collins named and abandoned after 7 months.

1840 - The cat was out of the bag when a particular gossip from Penwortham told the press of the vile events of this day when a shepherd promised a starving Indigenous woman a sheep in exchange for sex which he neglected to fulfill then, later forced to face the woman's rightly angry relatives, he killed her.

1842 - Dig out the feather boa and polish up that rhinestone garter-belt Mavis...the first play to be wrought in Melbourne was sprung upon the populace at the Theatre Royal, the title "Widow's Victim".


1848 - A hefty cutter named Psyche. Cutter was shop-lifted from Hobart by four convicts. Two survivors from her were picked up at Percy Island by the barque Freak, but the fate of their two companions was never discovered although some suspected cannibalism.

1881 - The Grey River Argus proclaimed that John Almao of Dunedin had been awarded a second order of merit, from the Melbourne Exhibition, for his model aerial tramway, while Reid and Duncan, civil engineers from Dunedin, received an Honourable Mention for their plain wire rope railway.
Well, I found it interesting...

1891 - Two Indigenous men were murdered by a policeman in Central Australia.

1894 - The Wanganui Herald whispered how Mr. Hindle, MLA of Lithgow, denounced Parliament for containing drunken blackguards.
One feels that Mr. Hindle was holding himself back, not really letting rip and tellin' like it was....

1899 - Sir George Bowen popped his clogs. Georgie-boy was a busy lad with fingers in political pies, being the Guv for Qld, the Guv for NZ and the Guv for Victoria where he didn't kiss the girls to make 'em cry but sacked 400 public servants and made 'em cry.

1907 - Tired of swimmers ignoring the SWIM BETWEEN THE DAMN FLAGS ALREADY message
The Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club was established on this day at the Royal Hotel, Bondi Beach.

1927 - Radio station 3DB began broadcasting in Melbourne. It borrowed the initials of the Druleigh Business and Technology college and was launched upon the world with a Children...

ABC News Australia Raided by ASIO Officers; Secure Cabinets Seized "GroovUs Feed Anews"

By Shem El-Jamal

On January 18, 2018, many Americans were pleasantly surprised to hear the news of the raids on the publisher, Newsweek, that took place just one day prior. These actions taken by New York law enforcement appeared to be largely justified, and in the eyes of many Americans, these raids were long overdue.

As the situation appears, the issues which promoted the swift confiscation of the servers at Newsweek stretch far beyond just one mere company in the U.S. We may see that due to the similar actions of law enforcement in Canberra and Brisbane, Australia, that Newsweek was not the only corporate source that was suspected of illegal activity.

For the longest time, thousands of Americans have grown increasingly impatient with a corporate media that has been long-divorced from accurate reporting and ethical integrity. Not only have corporate sources such as Newsweek been shown to be significantly dishonest in their reporting, but they have been long-suspected to be linked to criminal interests as well.

These and many other reasons may explain why many citizens were somewhat relieved to see these recent actions against provably compromised news sources.

For decades, the corporate media has gradually devolved into a politically bias, corporately compromised, puppet show for the ruling elite. According to multiple sources, there are numerous interests behind this media monopoly who intend to manipulate the public in any direction which they deem advantageous to elitist ideals.

Whether the goal involves starting useless wars in foreign countries, placing Cabal sponsored puppets in positions of power, censoring important information from being revealed, or disarming the general public for the sake of maintain social control, the general intent is the same.

It is a well-known fact that the CIA and other government agencies have significant control over corporate media. Companies such as CNN, ABC, CBS, and even NPR have been shown to be little more than extensions of the CIA and/or other manipulative government agencies. Though some may believe that past government programs such as Operation Mockingbird were discontinued, these programs a...

Vacancy rates drop in January "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Rental vacancies tighten

I've noticed many rental properties letting much more quickly in Brisbane in recent weeks.

Whether or nor this is the beginning of a trend for 2018 remains to be seen. 

SQM Research reported that nationally vacancy rates tightened from 2.5 per cent to 2.3 per cent in January, partly due to the seasonal variation over the Christmas period. 

In Sydney the vacancy rate fell from 2.6 per cent to 2.3 per cent in the month of January.

However, that's still higher than the 1.9 per cent recorded a year earlier.

Indeed, smoothing the numbers on a 6mMA basis you can see that Sydney's rental conditions have been easing, and rental price growth may now moderate from here. 


Hobart's vacancy rate increased to 0.4 per cent in January, but a severe rental shortage in the Tasmanian capital is putting continued upwards pressure on rents. 

Canberra also recorded a tight vacancy rate of 0.9 per cent in January, with Adelaide at 1.5 per cent, and Melbourne at 1.8 per cent. 

The trend in Perth's vacancy rate, although still elevated, is also improving.

ALP leader Bill Shorten. Photo AAP

BRISBANE, AAP Opposition Leader Bill Shorten says theres no way hell support government money going to Adani to help the Indian miner get its Queensland coal mine off the ground.

Adanis planned mine has dominated a community meeting Mr Shorten attended in Townsville on Monday night.

If they want to use EFIC (the Export Finance and Investment Corporation) or any other form of government funding body to get the money no, no, no, he told the crowd.

There were tense scenes outside the meeting at the Currajong State School when a man scuffled with anti-Adani protesters.

Police were called and a 53-year-old man was issued with a notice to front court on three counts of common assault.

The mine is a divisive issue in Townsville, which is one of two fly-in, fly-out bases for the Galilee basin coal mine.

Some want the jobs Adani has promised, but others view the mine as an environmental disaster.

Disproportionate numbers of Newstart/Youth Allowance recipients in Far North Qld, Wide Bay-Burnett & Logan "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Pete Faulkners post Job Seeker data shows little change for Cairns alerted me to the latest data on recipients of Newstart and Youth Allowance (for young job seekers) from the Commonwealth Department of Social Services. These data highlight the ongoing lack of economic opportunity in Far North Queensland (outside of Cairns and surrounding regions) and North West Queensland, which are home to many remote Indigenous communities (see map below). In the Far North ABS SA3 region, job seekers receiving Newstart or Youth Allowance account for over 12% of the working age population. The Wide Bay-Burnett region also has a relatively high incidence of Newstart and Youth Allowance recipients (at 6-7% of the working age population).

Newstart_Qld

Stark differences in the numbers of Newstart and Youth Allowance recipients exist across Brisbane metro regions. The leafy western suburbs have a very low incidence (at 1-1.5% of the working age population) while the Springwood-Kingston area has around four times the incidence of Newstart and Youth Allowance recipients (over 6%).

Filling up (Brisbane apartments) "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Cranewatch redux

I've done lots and lots and lots and LOTS of posts about the statistics behind Brisbane's apartment building boom.

When all's said and done Brisbane construction and apartment pre-sales are slowing up, while population growth into Brisbane is picking up strongly.

All that remains to be seen, then, is how quickly or otherwise the new supply is absorbed. 

Here's a short blog with no statistics at all, just some photos from a major construction hotspot: Newstead. 

What was previously a great big planning hole, is now home to apartments, a supermarket, shopping centre, bars, and restaurants, all within easy walking distance of the Teneriffe ferry terminal, and a very short distance of the Central Business District (CBD) of Brisbane. 

I go to Newstead for a coffee most mornings these days - there's quite a bit going on around the gasworks area, not least in terms of cranes and construction! 

While other cities already have many attached dwellings, this style and scale of development is relatively new for Brisbane, and is resulting in a record uplift to apartment stock. 


There is still a fair amount of construction work ongoing, although the bulk of the new volume is either now completed or close to being completed. 

The large tower block in the centre of shot - Haven Apartments - only completed in October, so there are still plenty of rentals available here.
