An intense legal battle between the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Mr Phillip Dong Fang Lee’s LDF Enterprise, the owner of an iconic 409-hectare waterfront site on Port Stephens’ northern shore, has resulted in defeat for Mr Lee.

At issue was the right of the OEH to enter the site, which stretches from Bundabah, to Fame Cove, to investigate the reported existence of Aboriginal heritage sites, including middens, and, if confirmed, to assess whether they have been damaged.

This assessment process was part of a wider effort by the NSW Government and MidCoast Council to...

Fame Cove vandalism

After listening to the heavy equipment on the eastern shore of North Arm Cove we took the opportunity to take a few closer photos from our boat. There is a siltation fence below the main cleared area but there is a lot of fresh earth below the fence, so the fence would not prevent contaminated runoff in heavy rain.

The view from Fame Cove is similiar. There is a fresh road running nearly straight up the hiilside with no siltation controls visible from the water. Any steep road running straight up a hill would be subject to significant erosion...
