The Great Barrier Reef is facing a growing crisis over the lack of suitable, affordable housing for the thousands of tourists who visit it each year.

“We have no housing,” one local resident told Fairfax Media.
One resident said he had “no money” and that he had to pay $1,000 to rent a house from the local council. “
So if I have a job, and I’m able to pay rent, I might even be able to live there for a few weeks.”

“I have no money.
I’ve never had any money,” he said.
The local council has warned that if a vacancy occurs, the local community council, which is responsible for the community’s needs, would have to step in.
The Great Australian Barrier Reef (GCBR) is a UNESCO World Heritage site that lies off the east coast of Australia.
It is home to about 250,000 square kilometres of coral reefs.

“The council can’t afford to pay us rent,” the resident said.
“They can’t pay us the rent we need.”
Residents have been living in tents and on the streets since July this year, and many have been forced to move to more permanent housing.
The Queensland Government has been trying to find more affordable housing options for tourists and locals, but they have struggled to find a home.
“If they don’t have a place to stay, they can’t move out,” the local resident said of the lack and lack of housing.
“And then the tourists come in, and they can afford to live out here.”
“It’s really sad,” he added.

A spokeswoman for Queensland’s Department of Environment and Heritage said that the state’s Department for Primary Industries (DPI) was working with the Australian Red Cross on the project.
“DPI and the Red Cross have been working with local communities to provide accommodation and supportive services to tourists to help them recover from this disaster,” the spokesperson said.
They have also been working on a pilot project for the state government to offer the residents “the opportunity to stay in their own home”.
The local resident was quoted by local media as saying that he could not afford to rent an apartment for two weeks, so he would have been sleeping on the street for the duration of the event.
“This will help me stay here,” he told the local ABC station.

They can’t leave.
Local residents have also reported hearing rumours of other campsites being set up for tourists.
“People are sleeping on streets,” the man told ABC News.
“What happens to the people who can’t get a place?
What happens to them?”
The local man said that he believed the Great Blue Heron and other large predators were being relocated, but said the bushfire had not affected them at all.
“At night, there are big numbers of bats and lizards in the bush, and we have heard it’s bad for wildlife, but we haven’t had any issues with any of the other big birds,” he wrote.
The Red Cross said it was working closely with the Queensland Government on the relocation plan, and was hopeful that a solution would be found by the end of this month.
“As the situation in Queensland continues to evolve, it is vital that the Queensland government is making a responsible decision to relocate the large animals as quickly as possible,” the spokeswoman said.
A spokesperson for the Australian Environment Defence Authority said that it was “actively working with” the Queensland Department of Primary Industries and the Queensland Red Cross to relocate wildlife from the area.
“In the event of a large fire, the state of Queensland and the state Department of Agriculture will assist local residents with the relocation of wildlife, and provide assistance in the preparation of the site for the relocation,” the spokesman said.
