UN­DER­MIN­ING TOURISM

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Mr Gor­don’s com­ments de­tract from the hard work done by Tourism Port Dou­glas Dain­tree and Tourism Trop­i­cal North Queens­land, in pro­mot­ing the shire as a fam­ily friendly des­ti­na­tion. It is dis­ap­point­ing to the nu­mer­ous hard­work­ing busi­nesses of the Dou­glas re­gion, par­tic­u­larly in in such a com­pet­i­tive tourist mar­ket, that our elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive does not choose com­men­tary that pro­motes and builds the des­ti­na­tion.

The chal­lenges faced by croc­o­diles, al­though unique to this area, does not de­tract from our value as a tourist des­ti­na­tion, and Mr Gor­don’s fo­cus on pro­mot­ing the Gold Coast is trou­ble­some, given he is the elected mem­ber for Cook.

Wade Greasley, pres­i­dent, Cham­ber of Com­merce
