Jewel in the crown

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

WE HAVE been hol­i­day­ing in Port Dou­glas once or twice a year for 12 years and know what a great hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion it is.

While there re­cently we read with great in­ter­est three edi­tions of the Gazette, es­pe­cially the “Re­vi­tal­is­ing Port Dou­glas” ar­ti­cles and would like to make a com­ment.

What dis­ap­points us when talk­ing to first time vis­i­tors to Port Dou­glas is how of­ten we learn that their travel agent booked them to stay in Cairns for most or all of their visit to Far North Queens­land and they ex­press dis­ap­point­ment that their time in Port Dou­glas is so short, some­times only a day visit.

Port Dou­glas needs to be pro­moted as “the Des­ti­na­tion in Far North Queens­land”. Too of­ten it is just an “add-on”. We be­lieve Port Dou­glas of­fers ev­ery­thing.

The chal­lenge is to get that mes­sage across to travel agents both in Australia and over­seas.
