Splendour was mismanaged from the first time it set up at Parklands, with zero foresight, contingency planning, or any duty of care consideration.
Parklands is supposed to be a dedicated festival site - it’s 100% not, bcs it’s not engineered for inclement conditions. #SITG
In 2013 conditions were as bad as today, with rivers running thru the expensive camp grounds; road collapse; all patrons forced to walk extremely long distances in pitch dark to get to buses; assaults in the dark;
patrons sustaining hip&joint injuries from hiking thru DEEP mud to get anywhere; extremely ill-conceived ground plan &pathways; *complete lack of planning for traffic on public roads (which begs the question: *who approves it?); lack of staff, and more.
Parklands should not be allowed to run gigs until they can prove they have extensive drainage installed; safe path contingency plans; safe walkway installations preempting bad conditions; alternative plans to ease public road congestion; accessibility, and more.
*not be allowed to *host gigs

Friday was a Very Bad Day. Day 9 of my teen’s covid infection, he had previously had mild symptoms, kept entirely to himself, &should have been improving but was suddenly hit by an immense, migraine-like headache. Not wanting to worry me, he remained isolated but,
…no longer able to use any distractions, he lay alone on his bed, crying in pain, unable to find any position in which his headache eased. He’d taken all the right meds; drank water; had a window open. I thought he was sleeping so I didn’t bother him.
When I knocked &talked to him thru the door at 7pm, he could barely speak. He couldn’t move &the pain in his head was unbearable. I donned a mask &gloves &did his obs. It took all my will power not to hug him.
Knowing the implications of a sudden onset severe headache,

Foraging with Egg. After spending a good while playing on the bank, waiting to see if Opal turned up (no show 😞), Egg was quieter than usual. Misty rain was moving in so it may have been that.

At abt 0:11s, he cocks his head listening to seabird chatter. His direct look at me is a suggestion we move. I didn’t register til I stopped videoing &realised he was fixated on an eagle,while listening intently to the seabirds. He gave a bunjil alert call as we got into the ute.
He’s not stressed abt it but eagle presence has been INTENSE.
We’ve seen a pair of wedgetails every day for 3days, &the juvenile WBsea eagle once.
One wedgie has passed super low over our place on two occasions, &the WBSE passed so low, I was looking down on it from the balcony🤯
