Spit features in Australias Top 20 beaches

No to ASF China Casino

Reachtel Poll 2017

"Do you support or oppose giving public land at The Spit to the Chinese-backed ASF Consortium to build five high rise buildings up to fifty storeys, including a casino?"

After the Beattie era when the then proposed CST was dismissed due to costs; environmental and navigational viability problems; and mass community opposition, SOSA evolved into a research-based organisation to dismiss the myths propagated by those attempting to gain public open space for vested interests. Thanks to our loyal supporters, our research continues to be of the highest quality.
