Surf­ing through the snakes

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

SNAKES alive - Jun­gle Surf­ing Canopy Tours at Cape Tribu­la­tion is scal­ing new heights with the open­ing of its new Snake House.

The Snake House, which opened ear­lier this month, is home to four fab­u­lous pythons, with lizard species and more snakes to be added.

Man­ager Sheena Walshaw said that she and her staff were happy to be able to of­fer the at­trac­tion for vis­i­tors at Cape Tribu­la­tion.

“For many peo­ple to see snakes up close and per­sonal like this is a real thrill for them be­cause they never see snakes oth­er­wise,” Ms Walshaw said.

“We have many tourists who visit us and they don’t even have snakes in their coun­try and so to see them up this close re­ally ex­cites them.”

Fur­ther work is also be­ing done on the prop­erty with the build­ing of a large dam that will be the home to a num­ber of tur­tles that peo­ple will be able to in­ter­act with.

The Snake House will be open seven days a week from 9am un­til 6pm and is on the main Cape Tribu­la­tion Road, just next to PK’S Jun­gle Vil­lage.

Any­one who spends $20 or more be­fore next Mon­day with any par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­ness in the Dain­tree will also go into the draw to win a “1965 VW Camper­van” tent.
