Tourism lead­ers paint the town

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

MEM­BERS of the in­ter­na­tional tourism net­work­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion Skal were given a guided tour of Port Dou­glas dur­ing the week­end.

They fre­quented a num­ber of favourite es­tab­lish­ments around town and got to know the lo­cals.

More than 120 mem­bers of Skal In­ter­na­tional, a world­wide or­gan­i­sa­tion of tourism lead­ers pro­mot­ing tourism and friend­ship, at­tended events dur­ing the four-day pro­gram, from golf at the Sher­a­ton Mi­rage to a cock­tail party on the

and a pleas­ant trun­dle through Port Dou­glas aboard the Bally Hoo­ley train.

Port Dou­glas busi­ness­man John Morris at­tended some of Fri­day’s ac­tiv­i­ties when mem­bers vis­ited Choo Choo’s cafe.

“It was a real plea­sure and hon­our to wel­come the Skal at­ten­dees to Port Dou­glas and par­tic­u­larly to in­tro­duce them to Choo Choos and aboard the speedy steam train to The Reef Ma­rina,” Mr Morris said. “It was cer­tainly a coup for the Cairns chap­ter to bring th­ese very im­por­tant tourism iden­ti­ties to our re­gion.”

Skal Cairns In­ter­na­tional pres­i­dent Ivana Pata­lano said the AGM and as­sem­bly had been held in Cairns be­fore but it was the first time it had ven­tured north to Port Dou­glas.
