Take the ferry for free

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

TO en­tice more visi­tors across the Dain­tree River, the Dain­tree Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre is of­fer­ing a full re­fund on the cost of the Dain­tree River Ferry for the month of Fe­bru­ary.

‘‘We want peo­ple to dis­cover just how in­cred­i­ble the Dain­tree is,’’ said Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre di­rec­tor Ron Bir­kett. ‘‘While some con­di­tions do ap­ply this isn’t an of­fer ex­clu­sive for lo­cals, it is avail­able to ab­so­lutely ev­ery­one.

‘‘We are head­ing into what is tra­di­tion­ally our qui­etest pe­riod, so if we can make it even more at­trac­tive for peo­ple to visit us, then that is our aim.’’

Mr Bir­kett said the pro­mo­tion co­in­cided nicely with the in­flux of vis­i­tor num­bers for Chi­nese New Year, how­ever he said the idea be­hind it was to help boost vis­i­tor num­bers north of the Dain­tree River.

It is es­ti­mated around 400,000 peo­ple visit the Dain­tree Rain­for­est each year, with the ma­jor­ity of these trav­el­ling in their own ve­hi­cle.
