Agreed, there is always at least a few that will disagree with any proposal.

Bit of a sweeping generalisation... I've heard many in support of Botany Bay, including from the cruise industry, and cruise passengers.

 

The local councils are against it, but that's just a stance they've taken (which they're entitled to), not surveyed the community. And given Botany port is an industrial area, not sure what their views are, but they probably won't mind as long as it doesn't disrupt their operations.

Yeah but Benjo managed to lose the Red Carpet for the spethshial people like I is.

You Royal Caribbean/Celebrity cruisers had better chip in for another red carpet then, extra length from Sydney Airport to Port Botany Cruise Terminal.

They could cut a canal from Sydney Harbour to Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, plenty of ACT cruisers like Mic and company would use it.

We need a set of locks to get up the clyde, but from there it is easy sailing.

A sail by from Acton Wharf that takes in National Museum, Floriade, the Old and New Parliament Houses, National Library, War Memorial and the big syringe!

 

Only need to rsise the height of Kings Avenue and Commonwealth Ave bridges by about 50m!
