Closing the gates at Kambah Pool

By johnboy 6 May 2013 25

Mayor Rattenbury has announced that Kambah Pool is going to be harder to get to at night if you’re into that sort of thing:

In an attempt to reduce ongoing vandalism and antisocial behaviour at Kambah Pool, gates to the
recreation area will be closed overnight from 1 July 2013, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury, announced today.

“From Monday 1 July 2013, the access gates on Kambah Pool Road to the recreation area will be closed to vehicles on a nightly basis,” Mr Rattenbury said. “During non-daylight savings time the gates will be closed from 6 pm to 8 am and from 9 pm to 8 am during daylight savings time.

“While there has been ongoing issues at this site, over the last few years vandalism of recreational assets and anti-social behaviour including the dumping of rubbish, lighting fires and racing cars has been increasing.

“A recent example of destructive behaviour in the area involved the use of a chainsaw to cut down trees and damage walking trail bridges, the cost of which to repair was around $8,000.

Kambah Pool is a gay beat and this needs to end. At least 50% of the time I visit I have to tell some disgusting fag to stop wanking in front of me, or tell some newbie freak to f*** off before I call the police.

It is for naturists, which is a serene, peaceful activity, often just for the tan. Many visitors do not respect the ANF code of conduct eg strange men pulling their dicks or follow you into quite remote private spots, hang around your suntanning spot looking into the distance in the same direction as your body, or just jerk each other off. Personal space is not respected, they stare or approach people without consent etc.It is a public place with the same laws.

Its wrong to close the gates, a police patrol and a walk through the area by enlightened officers will get rid of the undesirables quickly. Its location is not the cause, its lack of policing, its allowing the gay beat to thrive and allowing the undesirables free reign to f*** it up for the rest of us.

The gay beat has to end, you’re gay for f***s sake if you can’t meet someone clothed being naked in lantana, dirt, rocks and muddy water isn’t going to improve your chances. Kambah Pool is not there for your benefit as a gay beat.

And @Gary_W you say “Gay weirdoes need to be discouraged from going to KP so that Nudist weirdoes can (let it all) hang-out without fear of having their sexuality brought into question.” You Gary are a prejudiced homophobe. What makes you think straight people automatically become gay if naked? Why are Gays, or Nudists, weirdos? You sound pretty damn weird having no worldly knowledge or acceptance of your body and linking that with perversion is something you should review.

As for property damage it is something that happens wherever their a lack of safe places for people to have fun. Plus, there is ZERO investment in this public place’s facilities, apart from a stinking vomit inducing toilet.

If police patrolled like they are supposed and used to, then it would attract the nudists more and turn away the anti-social behaviors. In fact Kambah Pool needs investment to improve the facilities and safety of visitors. I’ve been to many nude beaches and Kambah is the pitts, the shittest and its only that way because its never patrolled so it ends up a gay beat and vandals playground – inaction by the government is not the excuse for even greater inaction.

And there are so many fun headlines if police and govt shinybutts ever have the IQ to do their job of governance and not beaurocracy:

AFP doing a show of force in nudist area
Undercover officers in nudist area
Police force in nude crackdown
Nude areas to have police surveillance

Does this qualify as rant of the week? You say you’re not a homophobe but then you refer to “disgusting fags”. Then you repeat three times that the gay beat at Kambah Pool “must end”. Why? It was the gays who first started taking their clothes off and popularised the area leading to nude bathing being legalised in the 1970s. And as for the ANF “code of behaviour”, the minute the ANF buys Kambah Pool, fences it off and charges membership fees then they can enforce their “code of behaviour”, whatever that is.

If you have nothing constructive to add to the debate don’t post anything at all. We can do without this type of confused, hypocritical and narrow-minded nonsense.

Chainsawin’ in the nude… Do people not have backyards anymore?

Surely we’re missing the point – the real question is, how much does/will the Government charge for the taking of photographs at naturist weddings, same-sex weddings, and same-sex naturist weddings at this fabled locale? If it all gets too complicated at Kambah, perhaps the Arboretum could help out with a Percy Grainger Gymnosophist Grove (at least we know what the pics will cost).

Agreed completely with the lot, though the idea of undercover police in a nudist area is somewhat amusing. Where will they carry their sidearm?
