Plan­ta­tion open

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE banks have fore­closed on the Gold Coast in­vestor who owned the man­age­ment rights to Plan­ta­tion Re­sort but the bar is still open.

With ru­mours sur­fac­ing about the re­sort’s im­mi­nent clo­sure since the demise of Bale last week, Plan­ta­tion man­ager Dave Joyce is glad to set the record straight on the fact it is busi­ness as usual.

“We’re still open, the bar is still open, the staff are all here,” he said. “We’re still the best party venue in town, the only place to have a kid’s party.

“We’re not go­ing any­where for the time be­ing. The banks have ap­pointed a re­cov­ery agency, and we’re work­ing for them.

“The rights are up for sale. They have been for seven months. The café is still open and we’re or­gan­is­ing a mu­sic trivia night for March 30.”

The man­age­ment rights to at least eight re­sorts in the re­gion are cur­rently up for sale.
