Good thing at least one of us did, then
Huh, TIL. Just did a quick google and all I could come up with is the balance of "common humanity". Like if someone scales a fence and injures themselves, courts may say there is no duty of care. Interesting that they could still be pinged though. And yeah, you're right. We can probably say goodbye to the Dreamworld Compound after these latest developments. Really disappointed I only got to vicariously tour the BB houses.
Right now I think they are riding a slippery slope... While they do have fencing in place to discourage people from entering the property it’s clear given the shear number of people entering the property without permission that it’s not working.
Also given the state of the property there’s a lot of potential for injury. Like I said I’m not legal expert but I think it would be pretty difficult for the property owner to argue they are currently fulfilling their duty of care. There doesn’t seem to have been any attempts at clearing up broken glass or attempts to ramp up security despite knowledge that trespassing is becoming a fairly frequent occurrence.
Hopefully the recent fire is a much needed wake up call... At very least a few cameras, an alarm, and motion detectors in place could do a lot in terms of improving security and discouraging things from escalating...
