Staff members of the Australian High Commission in Tamavua were sent home after they reported to work on Tuesday morning. By yesterday most sections of the High Commission were still closed for operations. What went wrong? Well according to Dickie Bird, gremlins chewed-up certain electrical wires in the building, which resulted in a total blackout.

 

Coastal Vision

One marvels at the foresightedness of our past leaders. It was way back in 1965 when the Coral Coast was approved for tourism developments by the then parliament. According to Dickie Bird it was based on Harris Kerr Foster’s report on the study of travel and tourist industry of Fiji.

This was handed over to Sir John Falvey. Dickie Bird said according to the report the Coral Coast was an extension of land from Natadola Beach to the then well-developed Korolevu Beach.

 

Barge 65

Drums containing diesel, kerosene and huge pine posts that were washed ashore in Navakawau village in Taveuni were actually cargo off Barge 65 that capsized in Nanuku passage, which is off Naitauba Island.

Dickie Bird was told the barge was towed by the tug Tui Wailevu and the cargo was to be taken to Naitauba Island.
