Gorge cen­tre open

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

IT IS of­fi­cial, the new Moss­man Gorge cen­tre is a hit with over­seas’ vis­i­tors set to match or bet­ter the re­gions hottest at­trac­tions.

Alisa Gar­cia and her fam­ily from Austin Texas were the first pay­ing vis­i­tors to the cen­tre when yes­ter­day morn­ing they pur­chased tick­ets to ride one of the shut­tle buses that will trans­port peo­ple from the cen­tre into the gorge.

“We’ve just ar­rived here at the cen­tre but from what we’ve seen so far it looks re­ally beau­ti­ful and this will be a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence to take back home and share with my friends,” she said.

“This is the first time we have been to Far North Queens­land and we ab­so­lutely love it. We es­pe­cially love the cool weather be­cause in Austin this year we just have not had a win­ter and it’s been 100 de­grees and more each day and so this is won­der­ful,” Ms Gar­cia said.

Asked how she knew about the new cen­tre Ms Gar­cia said she saw it ad­ver­tised in a brochure and de­cided to come along and have a look for them­selves.

“Today is our first day here and so we wanted to come and see the new Moss­man Gorge Cen­tre and see what’s on of­fer and what tours are avail­able so we can go out and ex­plore this mar­vel­lous look­ing re­gion,” Ms Gar­cia said.

“We have been to the Great Bar­rier Reef al­ready and that was sim­ply stun­ning . . . mag­i­cal. You guys are so lucky to have that on your doorstep and we will be go­ing to visit the Dain­tree as well.

“And the peo­ple are just so free and laid back here and makes be­ing on hol­i­days a real joy.”

The Gar­cia fam­ily will be hol­i­day­ing in the re­gion for three weeks and then fly­ing to Sydney and then Mel­bourne and then home to Austin.
