Indige­nous tours do well

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

MOSS­MAN Gorge Cen­tre gen­eral man­ager Ben Pratt has hit back at a story in the

that claimed tourists weren’t not very in­ter­ested in indige­nous tours.

“Our own tours are show­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­creases year-onyear,” Mr Pratt said. “In fact 2016-17 has proved the busiest in this prop­erty’s his­tory. We re­cently added tours to sat­isfy de­mand from tour op­er­a­tors.”

Mr Pratt said the Cen­tre wel­comes more than 350 thou­sands vis­i­tors each year and 50,000 of these vis­i­tors par­tic­i­pated in an one of the cul­tural based tours.

“More and more vis­i­tors are see­ing this as a ‘must do’ in their itin­er­ar­ies along with the amaz­ing Reef and rain­for­est.”
