      Janet,

      Cato Island is an atoll more than an island. It is far from the coast
      and outside major shipping lanes. It has marginal vegetation no higher
      than 3 feet, and outside of an automated weather station, no habitable
      buildings. It would take a great amount of work to make the island
      habitable and very expensive to maintain. Everything needs to be
      shipped in and refuse shipped out. There is no fresh water source
      outside of the occasional rain, and a desalinization plant could not be
      built do to the space constraints. The ecosystem is fragile. There is
      no room for grazing animals and no food for them to graze on, so
      livestock is out of the question. The sole food source would be ocean
      based.

      An air strip could be built, but it would take up more space than
      practical, making a water landing the only feasible option.
      Transportation from the mainland at Brisbane is more expensive that a
      casual trip to Melbourne.

      Cato is not what you may envision. Some of us involved in the
      Government discussed an official trip to Cato some years past, but the
      expense was prohibiting, as none of us can afford such luxuries. Some
      day, I may find a way there during one of my trips to Australia...

      If you are interested in living on an island in the Coral Seas, there a
      jobs on some of the resorts islands...

      Please let me know if you have any other questions.

      Enrique
