The beaching of the Pasha Bulker boat on Nobby’s Beach in 2007 was clearly the single greatest event promoting tourism for Newcastle ever. Why not bring back the Pasha Bulker? Or if it’s been destroyed, create a new memorial replica boat on the beach where it once lay. This will increase tourism to Newcastle 1000x fold and help the struggling families and children of this poor city. Why won’t somebody think of the children?
Edit: According to Wikipedia, the mighty vessel has indeed been repaired and lyrically restyled, it is now sailing under the name of MV Drake based out of Panama. That website let’s you track it’s past, and more importantly future forecrast routes, if you know what I mean.. ahem *cough* pirate hackers *cough*.
After all, is this concept not the epitome of what Visit Newcastle is trying to do with it’s ambitious See Change tourism campaign. The delightfully unintentional pun even works. Why am I not getting paid for this ingenious revolutionary wisdom?
Failing that, let us consider the merits of beaching Boaty McBoatface on Nobby’s Beach instead. Finally, it will appease the local surfers creating a new break dubbed Pasha’s, which with the next monster storm to rock Newcastle, may create a break set to rival Shipsterns Bluff in Tassie.
