Gorge breaks 10,000

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MORE than 10,000 peo­ple have passed through the doors of the Moss­man Gorge Cen­tre since it of­fi­cially opened just two weeks ago.

The 10,000th vis­i­tor passed through yes­ter­day, with the cen­tre’s gen­eral man­ager Greg Er­win ex­plain­ing he couldn’t have dreamed of a bet­ter start.

“We are thrilled by the num­ber of peo­ple who have vis­ited the cen­tre and taken tours to the Gorge and had a good look around the cen­tre and who had lunch with us as well,” he said.

“The staff were bril­liant, and you have to re­mem­ber this is the first time most of the staff have had to deal with the pub­lic and serve them and en­sure their visit was as smooth and as en­joy­able as pos­si­ble.

“And to this end they re­ally shone, I can­not thank them enough and they all worked ex­tremely well to­gether.

“The feed­back from the tourists, and lo­cals, was also ex­tremely pos­i­tive - ev­ery­one has done an out­stand­ing job.”

The cen­tre is pro­vid­ing em­ploy­ment to al­most 70 lo­cal in­dige­nous work­ers.
