Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - REAL ESTATE -

apart­ment took the bug from us (and later re­fused to get it tested.. . Not to worry we had an­other one).

Not only that, but they pre-warned al­ter­na­tive ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions that we may have been ex­posed to bed­bugs, even though they re­fused to be­lieve their prop­erty had the dreaded crit­ters.

All I know is that no more bites oc­curred once I’d left that prop­erty and I went from be­ing ex­tremely sick to mak­ing a rapid re­cov­ery with no more bites im­me­di­ately.

Just like the rest of the world, be­cause of global tourism, it wouldn’t be the first

time bed­bugs have been found in Port Dou­glas even in the clean­est of prop­er­ties.

An­noy­ingly stub­born, there is nev­er­the­less a pro­to­col to erad­i­cat­ing them rel­a­tively eas­ily as long as it is taken se­ri­ously.

Pre­tend­ing they don’t ex­ist in Port Dou­glas is not the an­swer and help in find­ing al­ter­na­tive ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions is the min­i­mum one would

ex­pect rather than be­ing made to feel like so­cial pari­ahs for the rest of our stay!

A huge thank you to all our spon­sors and helpers on the day for our /An­nual St. Au­gus­tine’s Golf Day Fundraiser on Sun­day 7 th Au­gust.

It was a huge suc­cess and our most suc­cess­ful one yet.

This would not have been possible with­out the local support we re­ceived from all our spon­sors.

Also, a big thank you to the Moss­man Golf Club for host­ing the event.

Ev­ery­one had a lot of fun and laughs and most im­por­tantly the funds raised go to­wards much needed equip­ment for our school.
