what was, what is and what will be

Welcome to the ‘(save) Laguna Whitsundays’ website.

The site is both a pictorial documentation of the Laguna Quays Resort and its wonderful inhabitants and the once loved, world ranking Turtle Point golf course.  Showcasing hidden treasures and an abundance of local Australian Flora and Fauna.

Secondly, I’m including my own personal opinions for which I’m well placed and entitled to voice. 

In doing so, I’d like to draw attention to the treatment of past employees at Laguna Quays Resort, and their ongoing plight for their basic rights as employees. Missing hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid salary and leave entitlements.  Misappropriated funds by the Managing Director. Decades of Government Guaranteed Superannuation, all gone. #GS #ATO.

This is only a little snippet of the whole story. A story about a man that not only neglected his responsibilities as an Employer and as an officer of an Australian Company.  But he also displayed utter contempt for the law, the locals, for the land and its wildlife, without remorse.  Its as though he is missing a moral compass.  #MarrinerGroup #WhatAMan #WhatACrockofShit (Marriner pleads guilty to pumping raw sewage into a national marine park at Repulse Bay, Qld.).  Marriner the human excrement pumps sewage into the Great Barrier Reef #WTF #BarrierReef

This is my own experience of Laguna, my musings, personal and professional observations.  I’m hoping to capture the mystery and magical beauty of a forgotten paradise that captivated and ignited my imagination and creativity.   

Laguna was purchased from Mr. David Marriner & his entities by Fullshare Holdings P/L. (fully owned by Chinese interests).  Its been a number years now since the Fullshares’ takeover, we are still yet to see any improvements.
