We think of tropical Queensland having pristine white beaches and azure sparkling seas.
Not necessarily so.
This used to be a mangrove swamp.
Perhaps this is what happens when you mess with the natural environment, you’re left with something that’s not very nice.
There’s no beach, no sand, and sometimes not a very pleasant odor.
We can imagine what this might have looked like before man turned up to urbanize the area. In the background, there is an inlet and on either side lush vegetation.
It must have looked very inviting once upon a time. Now the shoreline is completely built on, the vegetation that was once there completely cleared, and the inlet leads to a marina.
Perhaps the story here might be about greedy destructive property developers who care not for anything but profits. But in their quest to destroy, there is always someone else aiding and abetting, someone in government.
But what if there was an even darker secret hiding just below the surface, and about to be uncovered. How far would someone go to preserve that secret?
