On April 6th 2014 the Cairns and Far North Community came together to express their concern with proposals to dredge to expand Cairns Port, and other dredging / port expansions along the Queensland coast.
This highly successful event was attended by a broad range of community members and featured talks from Bob Irwin, Josh Coates, June Norman and Paris Chadburn, music and a march through town.
