I'll give a brief update on the Maleny saga...
The three remaining trees on the site are still standing. The Department of
Natural Resourses have determined that many of the trees were destroyed
illegally because they were within the flood zone. The owners of the block,
Cornerstone Properties could be fined $120,000 per tree removed illegally.
There is a town meeting tomorrow at 10am which could determine the future of
the block. The platypus were swimming and feeding in the river 15 minutes
