Moss­man Gorge Cen­tre’s Pratt takes on WA site

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Scott Tib­balls

MOSS­MAN Gorge gen­eral man­ager Ben Pratt has been pro­moted by Voy­ages, and is now in charge of both Moss­man Gorge and Home Val­ley Sta­tion.

Home Val­ley Sta­tion, Voy­age’s re­sort in the Kim­ber­ley re­gion, is where Mr Pratt worked as gen­eral man­ager be­fore he trans­ferred to the Far North two years ago.

“The most re­cent de­vel­op­ment is they’ve changed gen­eral man­agers out there at Home Val­ley and they’ve asked me to take on board a group over­see­ing role as gen­eral man­ager for Moss­man Gorge and for Home Val­ley,” said Mr Pratt.

He has very fond mem­o­ries of his time manag­ing the re­sort, a po­si­tion in a long chain of jobs he’s held with Voy­ages over the past 11 years.

Moss­man Gorge won’t be see­ing any less of Mr Pratt though, he’ll be re­main­ing in the Dou­glas re­gion while act­ing as group man­ager for Home Val­ley Sta­tion. “I’ll head out there a cou­ple of times a year. This will ob­vi­ously be my base.

“We’re even ex­plor­ing now what op­por­tu­ni­ties we can have to cross-pol­li­nate whether it’s train­ing, stu­dents grad­u­at­ing here go­ing out there, and vice versa. So it’ll be in­ter­est­ing to see what the fu­ture’s got.”
