AQUIS PLANS NOW CLEAR - REMOVE CASINO FROM CAIRNS CBD AND ELIMINATE ANY REASON FOR ANYONE TO GO ANYWHERE IN CAIRNS BUT AQUIS

In a stunning move, a company associated with the Tony Fung Aquis development has proposed to acquire the entire Reef Casino operation (Reef Corporate Services Ltd).  (RCT)


It's the equivalent of letting Qantas buy Virgin.  It's a small price to pay to eliminate all the competition, and no reason for Aquis visitors to go into the CBD at all.


It's Blade Runner.   




In Thursday's Cairns Post, we're expected to take comfort in the words "WE ARE 100% COMMITTED TO THE YORKEY'S KNOB PROJECT".

Left out of every statement is any commitment to the Cairns CBD, the Cairns community, and the existing Cairns tourism, hospitality, and retail businesses.

excellent reporting HBW. People cant blame Fung for wanting to make money, but people can make the 3 levels of LNP government aware of their dissatisfaction by voting for an alternative next time

steven nowakowski said...

The plot thickens. Easier just to buy a casino license and rebadge Reef Casino to Aquis Casino. I suppose Fung is even more desperate to beat Packer with his new Darling Harbour Casino, oops sorry 'resort'.

Where is the response from the Cairns Chamber of Commerce? Surely, they must have big concerns?

Wonder if any local "identities" have been buying Reef Casino shares lately….

Great to see that happen, the reef casino is to convenient for dole bludgers and battlers, maybe the extra distance they will have to travel will stop them and therefore look after themselves and families more responsibly

Anonymous said...

But we were told it was to be a high-end tourism resort project which would value-add to Cairns as a tourist destination. Turns out it's just another casino, just another place to tax those fools who can't calculate probabilities. I thought Reef Casino was doing that very well

Hi HBW.

Off topic, but do you know why the internet in Cairns has been very erratic today.

I'm really pissed off that the roll-out of our high speed broadband connections to the home has been axed by Tony Abbott when the contract to connect Cairns was already under way.

Melbourne 4 million, one casino, Sydney, 5 million: one casino (another about to be approved). Cairns, population less than 200,000, two casinos.
I guess reef and rainforest just doesn't do it for people anymore.

Smart move. He gets the staff, the licence and gets rid of the competition. Now we need to find out if he wants to leave the CBD even deader after AQUIS is built or if he wants to downsize his aspirations and stay in town. If the first then the CBD will take a major hit.

Mr Facts said...

Geez, this is really starting to stink. An no ordinary stink either. You think the southern access road pong is bad? This whole Aquis thing has a much more fierce and ghastly hue. I mean, shit, I've smelled some eye-waterers in my day, even let off some rippers myself that have wilted plants and made children cry, but this Fung pong is like someone has tipped a wetlands-sized bucket of fresh, sloppy horse turd all over the town, then told the residents to back it up by dropping their guts at the same time, just so they can feel like they can claim some ownership.

Metaphorically speaking of course.

Ivor said...

You can go to the Reef Casino at present, get a schooner of beer for less than five dollars,(xxxx$3.60)a meal for less than $12 and watch any sport you like in comfort and not spend a penny on gambling,and get a pressie on your Birthday and xmas.How long will this last with a change of direction.

ROFL I had a taxi driver tell me yesterday that "No! The Aquis Resort will not suck money and business out of the CBD. People will still go to the city casino and shop and eat in the city" he said. Yeah, right. For the information of the fool taxi driver, the Aquis Resort will contain a shopping centre plus heaps of restaurants and now it looks like snagging the only casino in the district. That taxi driver goes to show how brainless locals are and how easily Fung will screw the city over.

According to McKenzie the situation with itinerants in the CBD needs to be sorted out (so it appears that King has completely failed to resolve this issue), because soon thousand, no ten thousand, no maybe even millions of Chinese visitors will flock to Yorkey's knob and "occasionally" they may want to venture into the CBD, where they will be accosted by these "vile people" blablablabla…Millions of Chinese….the sharks should be afraid, very afraid...

We will lose the convention trade, or most of it to Aquis. Now it looks like all of the casino trade will be lost to Aquis. One dear old soul asked me if there was still going to be cheap movie days at the Casino. I said I rather doubted it. Just another way in which Cairns locals will be screwed over. I cant say Im sorry for Cairns locals if the lucrative tourist industry is largely swiped by Fung for himself and local businesses, hotels, restaurants etc collapse. They were given every chance by Val Schier to have a locally owned cultural precinct with extensions to the Convention Centre, a world class performing arts theatre, a public plaza and an iconic building. That would have drawn the tourists into the city and CBD.

What the fuck is a Senator from South Australia doing in CAIRNS talking about a CAIRNS issue? Why wasn't the local Senator for North Queensland, Jan McLucas invited? I mean Jesus H Christ we're all up in fucken LaLa Land with this Fung mini-city, not knowing anything about who the fuck pays for the sewerage, how much power will be needed,or if an extra power station to be built, extra water supplied or even if we have enough construction workers to do the fucken job. Manning and most of his Councillors are fucken useless and aren't doing what we pay them big bucks to do. We need some fucken leadership here. How the fuck can a wog senator from bloody South Australia help us? I mean Christ or mighty, what's it gunna mean to him living down there in South Australia hey? Jeez, but don't worry I will be going along and having my two bobs worth to say.

Anonymous said...

Bob R. are you not familiar with Senator Xenophon's stance on gambling ? That's why he is relevant. Only a far northern hillbilly would refer to this man as a "wog". Offensive and ignorant you are.

Bogan Bob, I'm sure everyone will be hanging off every word of your two bob's worth, just like we do here with your fascinating intellectual contributions.

FNQer2 said...

Good move involving Senator Nick Xenophon. He has the ear of the national press gallery, something an elected representative from NQ of any political persuasion does not have. This will now bring something that up tuntil now has been seen, and treated, as a local issue - backwater even- into the national spotlight. Many people have been trying extremely hard for a long time - not just the last few months since going public - to keep a tight lid on this development.

Hope Newman won't enact some new law banning these sort of meetings and making participants subject to arrest and solitary confinement.

Observer said...

In defence of Bob, he is right in expressing his frustration that we are getting NO leadership from Manning, Trout or Entsch on this, the biggest single private development EVER to be proposed in our region. Xenophon might be anti-gambling, as you say, but that is not the relevant issue here. We already have one casino and nobody brought up a Xenophon for a public meeting before it was built. The issues are clearly infrastructure and who pays for them, the impact on our natural and social environment, and the competition for the tourist buck amongst other things. As for the term "wog" get used to it, if George Brandis and the LNP have their way, it will be coming back into vogue pretty quickly. As will dagoes, wops, chinks, gooks, slopeheads, dotheads, ragheads, sambos and on and on. If you voted for Abbott, then suck it up.

Anonymous said...

I did not vote Abbot and I do take offence to the term 'wog" when it is used this way.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Bob R, if they had the local senator (Jan McLucas) on the roster it would be a Labor Party only feast. As others have said, Xenophon has a strong anti-gambling stance and is a big-name player.

As others have also said: to denigrate the man by using outdated racist insults says more about you than he. 'Wog'? Mate, you are either 12 years old or 95.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Observer, Nick X has been in the public eye for decades. If the worst thing you can say about him is to impune his ethinicity you are not trying or not very bright.

And that goes for Anonymous 10:21 who is too gutless to put even a pseudonym to her/his racist generalisations.

Come on folks, as if there are not enough serious problems with the Aquis gambling establishment without bringing in the 'yellow peril'.

ruby said...

A little wee bit of info, you people. I know Bob R. He is of Mediterranean extraction himself and he and his family all refer to themselves as "wogs" or "dagos". I'm sort of shrugging here, because while it might be unacceptable to us, it seems to be quite normal in his family. I think the reaction in here demonstrates there will be quite a few people getting all prickly and precious once Brandis opens up the floodgates on racial vilification. Let me remind you that Gavin King, Alan Jones, Andrew Bolt and our local John Mackenzie have scoffed at "political correctness" for years. Did any of you people do anything to correct them?

Alison Alloway said...

Hopefully, that distraction is all sorted out! Thanks to Denis Walls and others for arranging this public meeting which includes experts and local people such as Cr. Rob Pyne as well as Senator Xenophon. Despite the hugeness of this proposed development, this is the very first public meeting called, and full credit to those who have organised it. I sincerely thank you. As Bob R. and others have pointed out over and over, we have not been given any leadership from our so called community leaders over this.
The invitation to Senator Xenophon is well explained and I would hope that people now have a better understanding of the importance of his presence.

Ginger TheRedHeeler said...

Ruby, I've never had an internet conversation with GK, AJ, AB or our local JMac but I can assure you that, if I hear any of them use a racist slur to denigrate someone with whom they disagree, I will certainly speak out. I don't give a flying F what Bob R, you or anyone else does among their own friends or family. I have no problem with people using 'friendly' insults amongst their own: if African-Americans want to call themselves N**s or Gays want to call themselves Queers, that is their right. I am not politically correct with my own buddies either.

But, yes, I do get "prickly and precious" when we silence whole groups of people from joining public discource by belittling those few not of the privileged hegemony who stick their heads above the parapet. How do we get people from diverse minority groups to join the discussion when they can expect anything they say or do to be dismissed because of their ancestry/religion/gender?

Thanks to everyone who provided an explanation as to why Senator Xenothon is invited. Yeah it makes good sense. I note we have some experts on the panel so hopefully we can get some of our questions answered. This is the whole bloody point which is so frustrating. We are being asked to support the proposal but how the hell can we when we can't get all the information? Fung said originally that locals needed to think very carefully about Aquis as it will have a huge impact. Well some of us have been and getting no answers. Instead Aquis is going all out with this high-sell marketing campaign and promoting its mini-city like its Easter fucken bunny himself delivering baskets of chocolates. We're not fucken consumers. We live here. We're residents. Cairns and surrounds is our home and we shouldnt be treated like dumb consumers. We want to know how much our home will change once this massive mini-city goes up.
Good on you all for organising this meeting.

Matt H said...

Another curiosity is that the EIS has now been officially lodged with the Coordinator-General, but has not yet been released for public comment. I have never heard of this happening before - usually, when an EIS is released it is immediately available for the public comments period. Why is the EIS officially "released", but not to the public?

I can think of two likely reasons - firstly, they want to wait and release the EIS publicly over the Christmas period, so there will be minimal comment; and secondly, so that they will release a "public version" of the EIS that will contain less information than the full version. Either way, it is very suspicious and in keeping with their modus operandi of public secrecy.

Well said Bob. I couldn't have put it better. We are being treated like consumers not residents.

The soil testing results should be made available to everybody, ask any of the older cane farmers how much Benzine based insecticides were used over many years, this stuff does not break down and the grey clay that has been produced on these properties does not allow for it to escape, this stuff is almost like concrete when it is dry, it cannot be excavated and be placed elsewhere.

Great to see that a group has formed to air their concerns.....that is our right and privilege. However I hope the evening does not degenerate into the speculation, blocking, racism, and at times stupidity we see here in the comments. The reef and rainforest is not enough, if we are going to go with tourism we need a major development and the marketing $ that come with it. Of course if either a Lib or Labor Govt would stump up the cash for some decent marketing maybe we could stay as is?

Is Mr Paul Freebody so going ahead with his waterpark now that aquis is building one I thought I seen him on news say it could be we build a theme park now? Is this guy a crazy or what who is mr Freebody anyway?

Cynic said...

Dunno Anonymous 07.37. I also don't know about the aquarium Fung has proposed, nor the football stadiums, nor the two performing arts theatres. I wondered if these were offered as sweeteners for the locals and would be withdrawn after getting the go ahead, to be quite frank. Should that happen Cairns would have been well and truly arsewiped on the matter of a new performing arts theatre.

Barry Neall said...

For your information I have been tryting to organise a meeting with Pat Flanagan without any success so I went to the member Fo Barron River who has assisted the best he can.
I have also forwarded a letter to the Premier but as yet no response but it will come probably 2 to 3 months later.
Following my attempts to talk to Pat Flanagan from Flanagans Consultants the Member for Barron River Michael Trout took up my request and spoke to Pat Flanagan in regards to to EIS report for Aquis being released over the Xmas period.
Mr Flanagans reply was that due to the contractual agreement he was unable to talk to me in regards to the EIS which I find rather strange as it had been sent to to Queensland Government for consideration so why can't it be released now.
Michael Trout has informed me that there is a law that allows the 10 day period over the Xmas be extended onto the closing date so if they do it it should take the closing date to the middle of February 2014.
Having attended the Yorkeys Knob Residents Assoc meetings we were told following a request from an attending resident that neither Mr Fung or the consultants will not meet with the locals but will meet with the committee members only .......... Why.

NYM said...

What a contrast between the Chinese developers and the Japanese, Daikyo. When Daikyo first came to Cairns, everyone was all up in arms, but Daikyo went all out to "win hearts and minds" and got really involved with the community. They employed Nev Bates who was a top bloke, approachable, affable and able to connect with people from every social background. Daikyo executives had no problem in fronting public meetings and answering questions, often hostile ones. Eventually they did win hearts and minds. By direct contrast, as Barry Neall points out Aquis aren't interested in attending public meetings and meeting the public face on. Not good. Not good at all.

A damn good point there NYM. I note this was mentioned before on HBW that the Japanese went all out to win hearts and minds and they succeeded.

Anne said...

Anonymous 06.51, yes the region does need another major development. We just cannot stay frozen in time and we must develop further. If it is to be another tourist development, then so be it. I see this forum in December as not being against the AQUIS proposal but rather a venue for providing us residents with some answers and a better understanding of all the ramifications. I note the likes of the memorable "Bob R" have been calling for more information on this blogsite right from the beginning. I also agree with Bob R's insight. Aquis are treating us like consumers, not like residents.

cairnsite said...

Agreed Anne above. I don't want to go if it is only about bagging the development. I haven't made up my mind yet whether I want AQUIS or not. I want answers and looking at the people who are speaking I believe I will get them. Well done folks for organising this.

Matt H said...

Anne 21:23 - I have to disagree that we need another major development, and that we must develop further. Who benefits from this? Not me or other residents who moved here because of the relaxed lifestyle.

According to the Aquis website this project will create a "global city" and "will be like nothing else in Australia". Have the residents been asked if this is what they want of Cairns? What about planning for this development? It simply does not exist. The recently released Draft Cairns Region Planning Scheme makes no mention of a "global city" at Yorkeys Knob. Moreover, in the planning scheme, the land is still classed as Rural. A huge development like this doesn't just happen because a foreign billionaire says so. What about planning for the increases in services - more health services, more water, power supply, increased transport services (road, rail), emergency services - we would have something like 10,000 new people (mainly foreigners) sitting in a primary surge zone during a cyclone. How will the existing emergency services and health services cope with that? Even when Yasi hit the existing hospital was closed down.

And what of all the political "wishlist" of extras, such as the theatre (why stop at one, lets have two), football stadium (where is our local team?) and "world's biggest aquarium". These are all major undertakings in their own right, but the community has not a scrap of information about them.

Look at the new Aquis Casino web page and facebook page. It is full of pretty pictures of places completely unrelated to the project, and no information about the project. The EIS is supposedly complete but the public can't see it. The shopfronts have all closed (useless as they were)and it seems the whole project is in secrecy mode.

This project has Major Scam written all over it, and the cheering hillbillies are the ones being taken for the ride.

steven nowakowski said...

Well said Matt H.

Observer said...

What is the purpose is it is a major scam, Matt H? Why would Fung go to the expense of setting up a shopfront and advertising the project as much as he has done? Just for something to do? I agree there are a lot of questions and information still to be supplied and the complete absence from the front stage of Entsch, Trout and Manning acting as go betweens for the community is highly suspicious. I am suspicious of something going on but I just don't know what.

Night Owl said...

The Cairns Post isn't even prepared to publish any comments or letters from us the local residents pointing out that we are not getting enough information.

Anne said...

Matt H. I am keeping my mind open on this. I do believe Cairns needs something and cannot remain frozen in time. I supported the Entertainment Precinct for that reason. Yes, I well understand the community was not consulted on Aquis and it is much larger than the Entertainment Precinct which the LNP roared away with lies and deception that Val Schier hadn't consulted the community. I know some of the people who went in a delegation to see Mayor Pyne about building a new performing arts theatre back in or around 1995, so I know damned well the community was involved with the decision. Also it was part of Val Schier's election and I voted specifically for that. Yet with Aquis, we just had it thrown at us after the State Election with no community consultation whatsoever. It was perfectly obvious to anyone with a brain that the timing was all planned and that therefore certain people in Cairns knew about the Aquis proposal for some time. So the people were dudded out of local ownership of the Entertainment Precinct and instead all benefits of high class entertainment will go to a Chinese multi billionaire.
Yes, I know all of this, but I cannot stop the deceit after the horse has bolted. The people of Cairns are not very sophisticated and are easily manipulated. I know this. I think of the way they reacted when Mackenzie pulled his stunt about a tsunami heading for Cairns. Few people bothered to check the official weather websites. Instead they sucked it up and within minutes all the major roads out of Cairns were jammed. Cairns people will literally believe anything. That's just the way they are. However I still believe Cairns needs something, so I am keeping my mind open. However, there is so much information we still need.

Cynic said...

"Cairns people will literally believe anything." Never a truer statement said there Anne. Mackenzie must have laughed his fucken head off after that tsunami scare but nonetheless it was a clear and chilling demonstration of how many cretins out there believe whatever he says. If Fung is intending to perpetrate a huge scam over someone, he has come to the right place to do it. The locals have shit for brains and won't know what hit them until well after.

Matt H said...

Observer - You ask what is the purpose of such a scam? Well, for one thing, it is pretty clear that Mr. Fung has not become a billionaire through community benevolence. He is a businessman, and is driven by profits, so the whole purpose of this venture is for him to make money, and masses of it. We don't know the extent of the scam yet because everything has been kept secret, but when something smells like a turd, it usually is.

However, I would start by saying that obtaining a Tourism and Residential rezoning of land that is currently Rural (as would happen when Council approves the development) would mean a multi-million dollar increase in land values (at the expense of ratepayers) even before a sod has been turned.

You can't just build a mega-casino-resort like this in a spot where there is no planning and infrastructure to support it. Who pays for those upgrades? The Council doesn't even have the in-house resources to assess the development application it is so huge, so how will they find resources to manage it and to develop the massive support infrastructures required. The taxpayers and ratepayers will have to pay of course, and then if the project fails, the taxpayer pays again for the bailout.

In any case, there are many residents here who don't like gambling and the associated social problems, and who don't wish to live in a "global city" (= new Gold Coast). These are legitimate concerns that are being ignored.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Matt H who pays for the infrastructure, that is one of the things we all want to know. We want to know if we have the water resources for it, we sure as fucks sake don't have the health care resources. What about sewerage and the Clean Seas requirement? Entsch, Trout, King and Manning are all silent on this.

Anonymous said...

Could it be just one big scam to buy Reef Casino cheaply? Firstly, you soften them up by floating the proposal to build a huge mega-resort and casino which would damage or destroy Reef (there's not room for two in this town). Then you make them an offer they can't refuse. Once it's changed hands, the Yorkey's proposal suddenly becomes unviable. Fung could even blame Cairns for lack of community support for such a proposal.

Night Owl said...

I have just read up on how the Chinese authorities are cracking down on money laundering and Triad activities in the casinos in Macau. It is pertinent that only just a few people, including Hillbilly Watch, have ever mentioned this. Apparently the money laundering business is huge. Coming to Cairns in the near future, courtesy of Entsch, Manning, Trout and King?

Observer said...

Hillbilly Watch is the only place I have found to mention the huge crime scene in Macau and the fact the Chinese authorities are craking down there. So will this crime scene shift over here once Aquis is up and running? So loads of money will be moved out of China to Australia. Is this why Tenni is banging away about developing Southedge? There isn't any way in hell the Aussie workers at the resort could afford a mortgage, so just who would be buying and building there?

Wow,! Where were all these comments when Aquis was proposed and two Casinos were the plan. I disagreed with this eyesore from day one .

Fung doesnt have 4.2b waiting to find a home, not even J Packer does.He is a developer and will suck investors in to this and let them risk their money. Just after the completion he will be leaving town with the best return on investment, and others will hang on for years, including suddenly 'rich' Cairns homeowners, trying to emulate him. He's way smarter than any of us and is in it for himself. Wake up Cairns!
