Ask the tourism guru

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - TOURISM TALK -

Dear Tourism Guru, I have been com­ing to Port Dou­glas on hol­i­days for the last 12 years and we in­vested in a unit some time ago. My unit does not have a pool. My ques­tion is where are my chil­dren sup­posed to swim and play while I re­lax, get some sun and read a book? In sum­mer the beach is un­safe and in win­ter we get sand­blasted with the windy days, it is ridicu­lous that Port does not have a pub­lic pool, like Cairns Es­planade or Air­lie Beach. Fix up your act Port, when do we get a pub­lic pool?

Signed, Sand blasted swim­mer.

Dear Sand blasted swim­mer, Hey, I’m on your side. Can you be­lieve the peo­ple of Port have been try­ing to get a pool for over 25 years. In fact prob­a­bly from the time they filled in the rock pool which is now Rex Smeal Park. Ap­par­ently there were more stingers in the pool than out.Well there is light at the end of the tun­nel, with the ap­proval of the water­front mas­ter plan and a com­mit­ment of money from coun­cil hope­fully it will come to fruition. Sooner than later if it was me. Let’s hope the light at the end of that tun­nel is not a train com­ing.

Signed, Tourism Guru.
