Bertiehaugh track a coup for locals, tourists

Loop road opened By MATT NICHOLLS

A FOUR-WHEEL drive track that connects Weipa with the Bamaga Road will be a smash hit with both locals and tourists in search of a new off-road experience. The controversial Bertiehaugh Road has only existed as a line on

the map since the Irwins took over the property in 2006, renaming it Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. The original gazetted road that ran through the property was used by locals from Weipa, Mapoon and Napranum. The road was removed from the map and access was limited by the new owners.

However, as part of the property deal, a new road had to be created. It was drawn on a map, which was signed off by Terri Irwin. The Weipa community, with the backing of the Western Cape Chamber of Commerce, had been pushing for years for Cook Shire Council to put the track through.

However, any discussion of creating the road was met with fierce opposition from the Irwins and John Witherspoon, who leases part of the property for cattle grazing. But a team of determined locals, who asked not to be named, got the GPS coordinates from Cook Shire and went to work themselves.

WEDNESDAY FROM 7.30PM

Using buggies and four-wheel drives, they created a 60km singlelane track that runs from Stones Crossing to Bramwell Junction. The track will only be accessible for a handful of months per year because of the depth of Stones Crossing, which is also tidal. Continued – Page 2

Loop road to help bring more tourists to Weipa From – Page 1 “This is not a shortcut to the north, but it’s going to be a fun track for four-wheel drives that will offer a new experience for Cape York locals and visitors,” the chief organiser said. “We respect the Irwin family and the research they do on the property and we want to make sure that all motorists do the right thing when they travel through.” Western Cape Chamber of Commerce president Vance Wallin said he was rapt to see the track created after many years of lobbying. “We don’t want to see the environment ruined and we don’t want people doing the wrong thing,” he said. “This could be a great asset for tourism in the Western Cape and bring a lot more visitors to Weipa who have already been to the Cape and want to try something different. “We know people want to come to Weipa but they don’t enjoy going back the same way and using the Batavia Road to rejoin the road north. “This will create new economic opportunities for Weipa and hopefully Napranum and Mapoon.”

ARCHER RIVER The Bertiehaugh Road (circled) has been cleared for four-wheel drives and will be a popular loop road.

Traditional Owners have already discussed putting a camp ground near Stones Crossing on the Wenlock River. Member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch has been a long-time supporter of the Bertiehaugh Road project and congratulated

the locals for the perseverance and initiative for creating the track. “We just need everyone to do the right thing now to ensure it stays open forever,” he said. Locals are working on signs to be displayed at either end

of the track with the following rules in place:  Experienced 4WD’ers only  No camping or fires  No hunting/shooting  No leaving the track  No littering  No spreading weeds

Cape struggling to keep BOWLIES up with tourist numbers WEIPA

What’s on at...

By MATT NICHOLLS

BARREN supermarket shelves, long queues for fuel, all tours booked out and camp grounds at capacity – Cape York is struggling to cater for the massive amounts of tourists in 2021. A shortage of staff is making matters worse for operators trying to keep up with the demand of what is sure to be a recordbreaking season. Tourists have been forced to find alternative camp sites. The Weipa Camping Ground is booked out for the school holidays and that has resulted in a number of campers driving up the road to set up base at Lake Patricia and Lake McLeod.

Camping is prohibited there, although it technically is on Cook Shire Council land, meaning the Weipa Town Authority has no jurisdiction to police it. Weipa Camping Ground owner Brooke Quartermaine said there had been a number of discussions over the years in regards to a dedicated overflow site to cater for the popular times. “Nothing has happened and we are turning people away, which we hate doing,” she said. “It’s not just the school holidays this year; we have solid bookings for the next couple of months.” Ms Quartermaine said while it was positive for Cape York

that tourists were flocking to the region, it could end up having a negative impact on overall tourism if visitors were unable to enjoy their experience. “We need to make sure we can cater for everyone that comes here and not let them go home disappointed,” she said. “If you turn up in Weipa and can’t get a camp site, can’t get on a tour or can’t go out on a fishing charter; you’re probably not going to recommend it to other people.” Supermarkets are also trying desperately to keep up with demand, with Woolworths Weipa manager Katie Farrell encouraging locals to shop after 11am as the tourists were filling the

store as soon as it opens. Stock has also been limited, although some of that can be put down to barge delays. It’s not just Weipa that has been impacted. There was a long queue for fuel at Bramwell Junction after the service station ran out of fuel last week, forcing an emergency delivery. Punsand Bay’s restaurant has also been trying to keep up with the demand of hundreds of hungry guests, while the IBIS store in Bamaga has been heaving with visitors. These problems are not just in the Cape, though, with operators throughout rural Queensland facing the same challenges.

John Ross, chairman of the Ang-Gnarra Aboriginal Corporation, presented the Laura Quinkan Dance Festival Shield to Zeph Butcher and Simon Butcher from Lockhart River’s dance group Kawadji Wiimpa.

Lockhart River claim prestigious shield THE threat of COVID deterred a number of dance groups from attending, but that didn’t stop a sell-out crowd from enjoying the show at the Laura Quinkan Dance Festival. Around 2000 people filled the grounds around the traditional Bora ground and watched as groups from across the Cape and

Far North shared their culture with a crowd filled with mostly southerners. Lockhart River dance group Kawadji Wiimpa was crowned champions and took home the prestigious shield. Mayor Wayne Butcher, who led the group, said he was thrilled the younger crew were

rewarded for their hard work and dedication. “There’s a lot of new faces there and that’s what this is about; passing on culture from generation to generation,” he said. “A lot of the older dancers didn’t want to come because of COVID.” More pictures – Pages 10 and 11

Vaccination numbers rise across our health service MORE than 4600 people within the Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service region have now received either a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service Executive Director of Medical Services Dr Tony Brown said 720 vaccinations were completed last week in the Torres Strait and Cooktown. This included a total of 518 people vaccinated with a first dose of Pfizer vaccine this week on Mer (Murray) and Badu islands. A further 203 staff and aged care residents also received the Pfizer vaccine at the Cooktown Hospital. Dr Brown said vaccinations for the general public on Cape York were scheduled at this stage to start from mid-August. “We understand Cape York residents are very keen to be vaccinated,” he said. “But I am sure they will understand we had to start in the Torres Strait first due to the growing risk posed by COVID-19 spreading from Papua New Guinea. “As with the Torres Strait and NPA, immunisation teams will be offering the Pfizer vaccine to everyone in Cape York communities aged 16 years and over and I urge everyone to get vaccinated when they have the opportunity to do so.’’

VACCINATION DATES First dose Pfizer

Weipa: August 16 to September 3 Mapoon: August 30 to September 3 Napranum: September 6 to 10 Cooktown: September 27 to October 8 Laura & Lakeland: October 4 to 8 Hope Vale: October 11 to 15 Wujal Wujal: October 11 to 15 Aurukun: November 8 to 12 Lockhart River: November 15 to 19 Kowanyama: November 15 to 19 Coen: November 22 to 26 Pormpuraaw: November 22 to 26

Second doze Pfizer

Weipa: September 6 to 24 Mapoon: September 20 to 24 Napranum: September 27 to October 1 Cooktown: October 18 to 29 Laura & Lakeland: October 25 to 29 Hope Vale: November 1 to 5 Wujal Wujal: November 1 to 5 Aurukun: November 29 to December 3 Lockhart River: December 6 to 10 Kowanyama: December 6 to 10 Coen: December 13 to 17 Pormpuraaw: December 13 to 17

Dr Brown said vaccination numbers were starting to pick up in the Torres Strait, but many more people needed to be vaccinated to keep communities across the region safe. “The only way we can start to find our way out of the current cycle of lockdowns and restrictions across Australia is if a high proportion of people – at least 80 per cent – are fully vaccinated,” he said.

Bramwell to be sold at auction

POPULAR Cape York property Bramwell Station is going under the hammer. Positioned as the last stop before the Tip of Cape York at the start of the famous Old Telegraph Track, Bramwell is being sold by Wendy Kozicka and Vince Bowyer, who have owned the property for the past 20 years. The offering includes multiincome streams from the 131,900 hectares (325,932 acres) cattle station, tourist park, roadhouse and carbon credits. There is also an option to buy a roadworks contracting business, which generally turns over in excess of $3 million annually. Bramwell Station will be auctioned online on August 11. Located 200km south of the tip of Cape York, Bramwell comprises two secure long-term rolling pastoral leases. The roadhouse is located about 12km north of the Bramwell homestead and is the last fuel stop before the Jardine River Crossing. The Bramwell Tourist Park has 28 accommodation rooms, a licenced camp kitchen-style bar and restaurant, open camping and a caravan park area with guest amenities and laundry facilities.

Hard work rewarded

Kurt Gane from Far North Fishing was the first boatie to utilise the $3.5 million pontoon last week and he and his visiting clients (inset) gave it the thumbs up.

New pontoon gets thumbs up from Weipa boat users By MATT NICHOLLS

THE change in conditions for boat users was immediately noticeable for Kurt Gane, who was the first to use Weipa’s new pontoon. “It’s so much better than what we had. The conditions are much safer for getting passengers on and off the boat,” the owner/operator of Far North Fishing said. “You can see in this area, where the protection is, that it’s perfectly flat, which is what we were hoping to see when it was installed.” There is still room for another extension, which Mr Gane and other boaties hope will be funded to allow for better protection of the ramp itself. “That’s going to be our next little project,” said Dave Donald, a veteran charter fishing operator who now steers the Weipa Marine and Boating Group committee.

WTA chairman Michael Rowland with staff from The Jetty Specialist and Vance Wallin from Carpentaria Contracting on the new pontoon last Wednesday.

“We are really grateful that the state government listened to our concerns and funded this magnificent facility, which will improve safety at the boat ramp. “The next step is to extend this pontoon so it provides protection for the ramp, which can get rough when the south-easterly blows.”

Weipa Town Authority chair Michael Rowland was on the new pontoon on Wednesday morning, just minutes after it was officially opened. He said the $3.5 million piece of infrastructure was an asset for the Weipa community. “This is something we have

wanted for a long time and it looks magnificent,” he said. “If it is extended down the track, it’s going to be like a mini marina, which is what Weipa needs.” Maritime Safety Queensland general manager Angus Mitchell said the project was completed well ahead of schedule. “The new pontoon will provide sheltered berthing space for about five boats and will be suitable for deep draught vessels and visiting yachts,” he said. “Outside berths will still be usable in good conditions. “Before you venture out, remember to always check the weather and let someone know when you are going and when you intend to return.” The pontoon was constructed by The Jetty Specialist but installed by Weipa-based company Carpentaria Contracting.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Weipa’s vastly upgraded Evans Landing boat ramp facility is a fantastic asset to our community. The new ramp would not have happened without the hard work of a small band of people from the Weipa Marine and Boating Group, a sub-committee of the Western Cape Chamber of Commerce. The project involved a bumpy ride of highs and lows trying to convince the state government to rectify the deficiencies. However, there were other significant players in this saga, members of our community who quietly went out of their way to influence the outcome. The group would firstly like to express its gratitude to Vance Wallin of Carpentaria Contracting who severely pruned his quote to transport materials and install the new facility because in his words: “The community desperately needed this to happen.” His crew did an excellent job in completing the project ahead of time with a minimum of disruption to boat traffic. The community needs to be mindful of such generosity, without which, life in Weipa would be much poorer. Accolades are also due to our local member, Cynthia Lui, who announced the improvements prior to the recent election and followed the process through to its implementation. Two other community members played significant roles in our lobbying efforts. Weipa Town Authority chairman Michael Rowland was instrumental in interceding with TMR Minister Mark Bailey at a critical point, while Cape York Weekly editor Matt Nicholls’ coverage of issues ensured that the proposal was given the green light. My personal thanks also go to Steve Rehn, Ben Bright, Luke Nicolosi and Duane Singleton of the marine group for their dogged and often frustrating efforts. – Dave Donald, Weipa  Marine and Boating Group

Politicians eye off normalisation By MATT NICHOLLS

ROBBIE Katter says he wants to see the state government take immediate action on the issue of normalising Weipa and is happy to take up the cause in parliament. The state leader of Katter’s Australian Party said it was not good enough that the Queensland government had stood by and allowed a mining company to control a town the size of Weipa. “They have had 14 years to have this resolved,” Mr Katter said, pointing to the Cape York Weekly article which pointed to an independent report commissioned by the state government that recommended Weipa become part of a normalised local government. “I want to see immediate attention on this issue.” Mr Katter, who was in Weipa

KAP state leader Robbie Katter.

last year on the election trail, said he could see opportunities for the community outside of mining. “There isn’t going to be that growth while (Rio Tinto) are calling the shots,” he said. The Member for Traeger said he was disappointed that Cynthia Lui, the local MP, had not taken up the fight on behalf of Weipa. “I would respectfully say to Cynthia Lui that she needs to de-

cide whether she wants to take the side of her friends in Brisbane and passively observe the decline of regional areas, or be a part of change and insist the government has a more aspirational attitude towards Weipa,” Mr Katter said. “Her party would say there’s no future for a place like Weipa but for KAP we would only see opportunities, including a cattle and freight hub.” MINISTER RESPONDS LOCAL Government Minister Mark Bailey didn’t enjoy last week’s front page story, but did reach out to Cape York Weekly and provided a direct comment. Although he didn’t quite answer the questions put to him, or offer an interview, he said this: “The Queensland Government remains open to further discussions with the community, Tradi-

tional Owners and Rio Tinto about the possibility of transitioning responsibility over time. “These conversations have been ongoing. “The transition of Weipa to full local government status is a complex and sensitive issue that requires consultation with a range of stakeholders, including the Traditional Owners and surrounding local government areas. “All conversations need to be about ensuring the best outcome for the community and the viability of any future local government.”

ENTSCH NOT HAPPY WARREN Entsch said Weipa was “overdue” to be a normalised community and was frustrated that Rio Tinto had dragged its heels on the issue. He told the Western Cape Chamber of Commerce function

about how the mining company had requested the diesel fuel subsidy for the mine, which would then allow it to hand over the keys. “I went to work and it took a couple of years but I got the federal government to find the room in the budget and it just sat there,” the MP said. “In the end I had to go back to the Treasurer and tell him to spend the money on something else because Rio Tinto weren’t interested.” Mr Entsch said the miner had been a positive influence on Cape York’s lifestyle and economy, but its handling of the normalisation process would be crucial to its legacy in the region. “Rio Tinto will be judged on how it leaves Weipa and the Cape and what kind of condition it is when it leaves,” he said.

NEWS IN BRIEF Scanner opening called off LAST week’s official opening of the new Weipa CT scanner service was postponed in light of potential COVID-19 exposure across the state. The official opening will be rescheduled to a later date. Although the official opening was cancelled, the service is up and running and has already scanned four patients. It will continue to operate as normal, as will all clinical services at Weipa.

FNQ a leader in recycling FAR North Queensland has confirmed itself as a national leader in recycling with the public release of a new resource to help regional centres across Australia to develop their own plastic production industries. Last year, Regional Development Australia Tropical North published its FNQ Plastics Feasibility Report, which proposed the introduction of a FNQ Plastics Recycling facility. The facility focuses on commercial and industrial waste which can divert approximately 5500 tonnes of plastic per year, increasing the recycling rate to 17.1 per cent – almost double the national average. RDA Tropical North has now released a Replicable Template from the feasibility study, which can: • Be used across the country to analyse existing plastic recycling practices • Investigate the viability of a facility in any region • Develop a project model that can be replicated in other regional centres across Australia. The template is now available on the RDA Tropical North website at www. rdatropicalnorth.org.au/about/initiatives/ fnq-plastics-industry-proposal

Chamber event proves a hit with local businesses THE Weipa-based Western Cape Chamber of Commerce hosted its biggest function for years as it attempts to reinvigorate the group and attract new members. Around 80 people attended the function at the Carpentaria Golf Club, where guest speakers Mark Olsen and Warren Entsch gave an update on projects happening in the Far North. Mr Olsen, the CEO of Tourism Tropical North Queensland, said the Cape was experiencing a mad rush of domestic tourism and that locals were encouraged to harness the surge and cash in. “We are also offering reciprocal membership to TTNQ for anyone that is a member of the Western Cape Chamber of Commerce,” he said on Monday night. Mr Entsch, the federal Member for Leichhardt, said Weipa needed to shore up its future outside of the mining industry. “There are so many economic opportunities here in the Cape that don’t revolve around digging up bauxite,” he said. “There’s tourism, there’s freight potential with the deep water port ... we can’t rely on Rio Tinto for our long-term economy.” Mr Entsch said the continual sealing of the Peninsula Developmental Road would be a boon for the region and challenged businesses to think creatively to see how they could grow their base.

Cape to benefit from arts funding THREE Cape York communities have benefited from the latest round of funding from the state government’s Indigenous Regional Arts Development Fund. Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said the nine funded projects were helping to share stories and culture through various art forms, including visual arts, music and dance. “These projects will make a significant contribution in preserving and sharing the knowledge and cultures of Traditional Owners in Queensland and support employment opportunities for First Nations artists and arts workers,” she said. “Supporting jobs is a key pri-

ority as we deliver our plan for economic recovery, and these projects are ensuring vibrant arts and cultural experiences, which are vital in truth-telling of our nation’s

history, are shared in all areas of Queensland.” Napranum Aboriginal Shire Council was awarded $25,000 for the Napranum Arts Blitz, a two-

week intensive community capacity building program with industry professionals. The funding will also assist the Napranum council to develop a business case for a future Indigenous Art Centre. Aurkun Shire Council was also awarded $25,000 for a women’s painting legacy program. Intensive workshops will be delivered by Gina Allain, an art therapy and arts development specialist, to strengthen women painters’ capabilities. The Pormpuraaw Art and Culture Centre was granted $9650 for more than 30 traditional dancers and singers to attend the Laura Dance Festival.

Other funded projects include the Doomadgee Deadly Sounds program, which is bringing together local youth to learn and play modern and traditional cultural musical instruments, and encourage people to compose their own music. Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council will deliver From the Ground Up to help pass on traditional pottery practices and showcase the evolution of Yarrabah Pottery from the early 1970s to now. Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council will lead NAIDOC Week and Leadership Group Workshops, to enable knowledge exchange between community Elders and younger generations.

Leaky roof a problem for iconic venue

Page 8 – Cape York Weekly – Tuesday, July 6, 2021

THE James Cook Museum in Cooktown is in need of urgent roof repairs to ensure historical artifacts contained in the museum are not destroyed. The former convent, now owned and operated by the National Trust of Australia (Queensland), is one of Cooktown’s major attractions. The museum houses an extensive collection of local Guugu Yimithiir artefacts, along with an original anchor and canon from HMB Endeavour and a model of the ship that dates to the early twentieth century. The museum also celebrates the history of the convent and the nuns and children who lived there until the 1940s and displays telling the stories of the Chinese immigrants and the gold rush era in the Far North. Member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch said he was shocked to learn during a recent visit to Cooktown aspects of the historically significant museum had fallen into disrepair. “Unfortunately, in recent years the original convent building that houses James Cook Museum has needed repairs to the roof and rainwater infrastructure,” Mr Entsch said. “The ongoing leaks have led to some damage in the attic and the property needs significant upgrades to ensure its watertight. “This will ensure the fascinating artefacts contained in the museum are not put further at risk. Thankfully, the museum’s dedicated team have been working to ensure the collection items are well looked after but unfortunately the scope of repairs is now significant.” Mr Entsch said he was investigating funding avenues to ensure the Trust could undertake the necessary and urgent repairs. “We can’t sit by and watch this magnificent and historical building fall further into disrepair,” he said. “The history contained in the building is simply amazing. It is our shared history. “However, with all that has occurred over the past 18 months, it has not been possible for the Trust to complete these repairs.”


Elders cut the ribbon to officially open the new facility.

Member for Cook Cynthia Lui (centre) chats with Michael Yam and Aileen Addo, who is the chair of the Apunipima board.

The new facility put smiles on the faces of both locals and staff members, who say there will be immediate health benefits.

New family health centre opened KOWANYAMA residents have access to a first class health facility following the official opening of the Atharpuch Family Health Centre. It is Apunipima Cape York Health Council’s third purpose-built facility in the region, following new centres in Coen and Aurukun. The services offered from Atharpuch Family Health Centre will initially focus on maternal child health, allied health and health promotion and prevention programs. Apunipima will also deliver social emotional wellbeing activities through its men’s support programs. “The opening of the Atharpuch Family Health Centre in Kowanyama is a crucial component of Apunipima’s commitment towards closing the gap in health for the people of Cape York,” Apunipima CEO Debra Malthouse said. “There is unquestionable evidence that community driven, community led, culturally appropriate primary health care is key to improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. “Apunipima will continue to work with the Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service to ensure that we are collectively able to meet the health needs of the Kowanyama community.” Apunipima said it would continue to work with the Kowanyama Health Action Team as the clinic is established in the coming months, to determine health priorities and assess service delivery needs into the future. Key to the design and layout of the building was the consultation process. Extensive feedback was sought from key stakeholders to ensure that the building is supportive of cultural considerations, while meeting the clinical requirements for modern health service delivery.

The new centre will be a game-changer for Kowanyama residents.

Thomas Hudson speaks at the opening.

Construction of the centre was funded by the federal government’s Rural and Remote Health Infrastructure Project. The tender was awarded to H.C. Building and Construction, a company that has extensive experience building in remote communities. Works commenced in September 2020, and continued through the wet season. The final fit-out was completed in May. Vanessa Deakin, Kuuk Yak woman of the Kuuk Thaayorre nation of Pormpuraaw, is the community-based primary healthcare manager. She will manage both Atharpuch in Kowanyama and oversee outreach services in Pormpuraaw. “I want to acknowledge the hard work and enthusiasm of all who were involved in the planning, building and fitout of Atharpuch Family Health Centre. Special recognition must go to our community based health action team who continue to provide feedback from the people of Kowanyama,” she said.

SPORT IN BRIEF Old faces welcomed DALE ‘Dasha’ Holmquest made a rare appearance at last week’s Wednesday Wackers golf and wasn’t the only fresh face on the golf course. Former local junior Tom Whittle, now based in Cairns with a handicap of +3, was in town on the school holidays and had a social round. His 35 off the stick (yes, for nine holes) wasn’t enough to get him the win though! Matt Byrne took the honours with 41/30.5 to beat Jim Taylor, who had 33.5. Jim did get the nearest to pin on 15 however, while Mick Cerneka was the closest on the 18th. Stretch Noonan picked up Bradman’s.

Austin claims Dawnies MICK Austin had an enjoyable Sunday morning, beating a field of 14 to win the Dawn Busters golf. Grant Crossley was runner-up in a compact leaderboard. Matt Byrne had the longest drive, while Alwyn Van Neikerk picked up the nearest to pin prize. Steve Sheedy had the misfortune of coming last to win the Hoffman’s.

Garry Squires.

Weipa residents and members of the Cairns Crays Underwater Hockey Club tested the local pool on the weekend. 

Pictures: NEIL HUMMERSTON

Underwater hockey has a place at Weipa’s pool COULD underwater hockey be the next big sport in Weipa? Scott Barton thinks so. The keen spear fisherman says its the perfect sport to hone your underwater skills and hopes it will catch on in the community. Barton invited Sean Hartley and Anton Williams from the Cairns Crays Underwater Hockey Club to Weipa and they brought a large group of members and equipment to show locals. “Weipa has got the ideal pool

because it has great tiles and it’s not too deep,” Hartley said. “Underwater hockey is a great sport in the tropics because you don’t sweat.” The sport is non-contact and is suitable for people of all ages. “You might get the odd kick in the face if you’re in the wrong spot but it’s a lot of fun,” Hartley said. “We’ll do another trip to Weipa and see if we can get something regular happening in the community on weeknights.”

Rita Price.

Bowls champions crowned IT was a busy weekend at the Weipa Bowls Club, with several 2021 champions crowned over the two days. Garry Squires won the men’s open event, beating Ben Moore. Rita Price beat Sue Bowman in the final of the women’s open championship. In the mixed pairs, Garry Squires and Norma Roberts were too good for Mick Cerneka and Tamainetutai King. Squires also had a win in the men’s pairs after teaming up with Lyle Sainsbury to beat Ben Moore and Nathan Woodward.

Warren Entsch chats with Bishop Keith Joseph on Erub Island.

Torres Strait Islanders came from far and wide to be at the 150th anniversary of the Coming of the Light on Erub.

Coming of the Light ~ 150th year

Region rejoices By MATT NICHOLLS

THEY sang, they danced, they prayed – the Torres Strait’s islands came to life last Thursday for the 150th anniversary of the Coming of the Light. While celebrations were staged across the Far North, there was no bigger event than the gathering at Erub (Darnley) Island where a moving ceremony was held in front of locals and dignitaries. Member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch was there to join the celebrations and praised the Erub community and Anglican Church for putting on a great show.

“It was absolutely fantastic. One of the best things I have been to in all my years as a politician,” he said. “Credit to Bishop Joseph and his team because I thought it was excellent and it was a day that most people will remember for many years to come.” Celebrations were also staged on Thursday Island and throughout Zendath Kes, while there were also festivities and services in both Cairns and Townsville. A major event planned to be held in Brisbane’s CBD had to be postponed due to the lockdown. The Coming of the Light is

celebrated on July 1 throughout the Torres Strait and is one of the most important days on the calendars for local Christians. In the 19th Century, the London Missionary Society set out to convert people of the south-west Pacific to Christianity. In July 1871, the Reverend Samuel MacFarlane, a member of the Society, anchored at Erub Island accompanied by South Sea Islander evangelists and teachers. Their ship The Surprise anchored off Kemus Beach and lowered its boat for MacFarlane and the others to go ashore. A warrior clan Elder named

Dabad was watching from a nearby hill on Erub and made his way down to the beach with his men. MacFarlane waded ashore and dropped to his knees before the Erubians. “Never did men feel more than we did then their absolute dependence on Divine Help,” he wrote. MacFarlane had a Bible in his hands and thrust it towards Dabad, who stayed his spear, defying tribal law, and accepted the book. The arrival of Christianity in the Torres Strait is credited with bringing peace and stability to the region in what was a tough time. More pictures – Pages 4 and 5

Vaccine numbers improve in key Island communities By MATT NICHOLLS

SEVENTY per cent of the eligible population received their first vaccine on Badu and Mer islands last week, sparking optimism in the health community. Mer (Murray) Island had better results than Badu, but Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service director of medical services Tony Brown was happy overall. He said 518 people were given their first dose of Pfizer, which represented about 71 per cent of the 733 people in the eligible population group across the two islands. On Mer alone, it was about 86 per cent of the eligible population. Dr Brown said vaccination numbers were starting to pick up in the Torres Strait, but many more people needed to be vaccinated to keep communities across the region safe. “As we can see with the situation in south-east Queensland, Townsville and Magnetic and Palm Islands – not to mention Sydney, Darwin and Perth – things can change very quickly indeed, especially with the new, much more in-

fectious Delta variant now making an appearance in Australia and in Queensland,” he said. “The only way we can start to find our way out of the current cycle of lockdowns and restrictions across Australia is if a high proportion of people – at least 80 per cent – are fully vaccinated. “To achieve this, we must do our bit up here in the Torres Strait and, in the coming weeks, in the NPA and on Cape York. “So please, when the vaccination clinic comes to your community don’t hesitate to go along and be vaccinated. “Everyone in our region is being offered the Pfizer vaccine. “The only people in our region still being offered AstraZeneca are those who received a first dose at the beginning of our vaccination program in mid-March, before we paused the program. Dr Brown said health service vaccination teams would this week move to Warraber Island and St Paul’s community on Moa Island. They will then move to Poruma Island and the Kubin community on Moa Island.

Badu resident Ronnie Nomoa receives his first dose of the Pfizer vaccination. INSET – Cooktown doctor Tash Coventry also got her jab last week.

Recognition has support of Australia

NINETY per cent of public submissions to the Indigenous Voice Co-design Process support a referendum on a First Nations Voice to Parliament, as called for by the Uluru Statement from the Heart. The expert analysis by UNSW Indigenous Law Centre, published in a report last week, shows that 86 per cent of submissions expressly support the constitutional enshrinement of an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, and a further four per cent express in-principle support. Professor Gabrielle Appleby, Emma Buxton-Namisnyk, and Dr Dani Larkin also revealed that one-third of submissions expressly state that they do not support the approach of legislating an Indigenous Voice, or legislating first with a view to pursuing possible constitutional enshrinement in the future. “I’ve just been blown away by the civic engagement with this process,” said Megan Davis, UNSW Professor of Law. “People want the government to give them a say, they are asking the government to take this issue to a referendum. The Prime Minister should be confident from this process that there is a broad commitment across the Australian public.”

Government must do more Adoption process to to protect the Torres Strait open soon Climate change will have an impact on all Australians, but it will likely be the Torres Strait that suffers the most. This piece written by Year 12 student MARK KABAY-SALEH gives a young person’s perspective on the increasingly alarming situation in Zenadth Kes ... NGAU LAG (My land) EDDIE Mabo did not fight for land to lose it to climate change. Did you know that one of Australia’s First Nations people are preparing to evacuate from their islands due to climate change? Zenadth Kes, also known as the Torres Strait, is experiencing the first hand of climate change with the threat of rising sea levels. Losing a piece of land would affect every island nation across the waters and on the mainland. The devastation would spread throughout Indigenous communities across Australia. Our culture seeps into the land. The food, dances and songs, tradition, and ailan kastom (island custom) are based on the ecosystem and environment. Ceremonies, rituals and cultural events were given birth on the islands. To lose the land would be extremely traumatising for all Zenadth Kes Islanders. We refuse to abandon our homes as our tradition and culture is meaningless without its mother. We are spiritually woven into the land. The islands play a significant role in our lives in which food, shelter, comfort and love are provided. These islands are viewed as our libraries which contain ancient wisdom, knowledge and stories. The Queensland government

must be held accountable as this matter is serious. Climate change is heavily affecting my people, putting their homes at risk. The constant burning of coal is responsible for melting the polar ice caps, leading to my islands being eaten up by the ocean. Our islands are our home, though they are sinking. The Queensland government can be doing so much more to prevent further damage. Fallen coconut trees aren’t enough to withstand king tides anymore. I’m a city boy born and raised on Yuggera and Turrubul lands of Meanjin (Brisbane). Late last year I made my journey home for the very first time at 16. The first moment I planted my feet onto the sand I felt a strong connection to me and the land. Almost as if my ancestors were calling upon me to return home and witness the destruction of climate change, hoping that I may become a voice and advocate for them. Despite being brought up within the walls of a city I have always reminded myself that my old people walked upon those sacred lands of Masig and Poruma; that they were fearless seafarers and warriors. Even though they are now gone, I still hear them calling through my prayers and island songs. As I did, I would want other Zenadth Kes mainlanders to travel home and discover their identity and for those that live there, to continue looking after it and preserving it the best they can. I do pray that sometime, sooner rather than later, the Queensland government can acknowledge, step in, and help my people of Zenadth

TORRES Strait Islanders will soon be able to apply for legal recognition of their culturally adopted children under Queensland’s Meriba Omasker Kaziw Kazipa Act. “The Act gives Torres Strait Islander families a process for making an application for legal recognition resulting in a permanent transfer of parentage from the biological parents to the cultural parents,” said Member for Cook Cynthia Lui, the first Torres Strait Islander elected to parliament. “For generations, Torres Strait Islanders have supported their children and each other in loving, supportive extended families. “This Act means children and adults who’ve grown up with traditional adoptive parents will finally have their legal identity match their cultural identity. “This will enable kids raised through traditional child rearing practices to access identification documentation needed for things like education, health care, housing and finance. “It will also enable adoptive parents to make decisions on behalf of the child which previously needed to be made by a legal guardian. “The inaugural commissioner Mr C’Zarke Maza will commence his service in mid-July.” Two offices (one in Cairns and one on Thursday Island) will open in August. Applications for cultural adoption will be able to be submitted by early September. The offices will have staff on hand to provide information about the Act, support people to make an application, engage with the community and provide information about the application process.

Mark Kabay-Saleh is proud of his Torres Strait heritage and wants to protect his homelands.

Kes take on the struggle and fight against the rising of sea levels. Truthfully, I fear losing my island. It is never too late. Mark Kabay-Saleh is known as ‘The Makiba’ and is a Year 12 student at The Murri School.
