Isle of Norfolk Pine Branches - Collections
No more Norfolk Island Pine branches will be picked up on demand from Port Fairy real estate. The inhabitants are urged to use their greenery (organic bins ) for the removal of branches. The Council decided at its regular session in May 2017 that the branches would only be picked up by Council officials on a quarter-by-quarter basis.
In March first weeks ( "before the long working day weekend"); June first weeks ( "before the long Queens Birthday weekend"); December first weeks. Inhabitants who wish Council employees to pick up branches are asked to pick up or store the branches one weeks before pickup. The response to the many enquiries to pick up the branches has become an exceedingly time-consuming job for the Council employees, affecting the normal service such as cutting, treecare and general town-shipping.
We' re going to Cascade Bay to see the jetty.
It' gotta be one of those street cattle that' wandering outside the Iodge. You can see them all over the island. We' d chosen to go to the Cascade area this mornin' to bum. We would see Cascade Jetty, the alternate landing stage for yachts, if it is too risky to end up at Kingston Jetty.
While we were on our way to Cascade, we discovered a good example of the panes we had seen around the palms. By the time we reached the Cascade area, the sea landscape seemed magic. The sun was shining on the waters near the dock. lan discovered an old kettle on the dock. There is no real port or secure area for vessels to discharge their goods.
Vessels must be anchored approx. 1 km at Sea and small vessels, which are named lighters, go to the vessels and carry the load either into the Cascade Jetty or into the Kingston Jetty. Occasionally the load is too big to hold a cigarette lighters, so that two lighters are tied together and the load is sitting on the two raft.
Understanding that the load would land later in the day, we were very curious to see how the discharge would work. Unfortunately, the boat was late, so we never got to see the island's discharge traditions.

During the second settlement we realized that two smokestacks were constructed in this area, but we did not see them anywhere. I was going to Ballay, but the street to the cove was blocked by craftsmen. For the remainder of our time on the island it remained off-limits to the public, so that we never got to see it.
Since we couldn't go there, we went along Martin's Road towards Point Blackbourne. Before we returned to our hut for dinner, we returned to Mount Pitt.
