“I grew up on the harbour where I learned to swim, fish and sail. It’s worth protecting for our kids”
I am fully committed to FOSH and its principles.
We have the finest harbour in the world capping off the beauty of this wonderful Island nation which is an asset of incredible value.
However if assets are not looked after they become liabilities.
For most of my life I have been working to maintain our precious environment and that commitment started with Sydney Harbour.
I had the incredible gift of growing up on the harbour where the rock pools and beaches were my playground. You do not get it better than that
