Mining has enriched our nation but, the days of digging everything up and selling it overseas are coming to an end. What will our next new foundational industry be? Why aren’t we thinking and exploring this as a national priority.
One latent industry for Australia must surely be our unique ecology. So much of the infrastructure is already in place, the landscaping complete. It has been for about a million years and the world wants to see it. Untouched, raw and the way it’s been for ever.
Prosperity for this nation lies in protecting what we already have rather than digging it up and selling it. I see great industry and untapped opportunity in sharing our red deserts, watching our great white sharks and setting the global standard that defines, clean, green and pristine.
