Wow! We no sooner get over the summer school holidays when Easter is upon us. When you read this we will be hard at work keeping holiday makers controlled and informed about the dolphins. Easter is usually a busy time, so we hope the weather holds.
Last month, we had an influx of visitors from the UK and Ireland. Perhaps they did not like their cold and wet winters and wished to experience our warm-to-hot summer and autumn months.
I quote some of the recent comments written in our visitors book:
“Thank you so much for the wonderful and natural experience. I commend and congratulate all staff and volunteers”
“A great start to our trip to Fraser Island. An unforgettable visit. Thanks” From East Yorkshire, UK.
“Ticked off the bucket list. Amazing experience. Very knowledgeable staff, fantastic history and stories about the bay. I’m going to send more people from Ireland over. Loved it. Thanks”
“Had an amazing experience filled with great stories from all staff – top notch! From Northern Island.
I think it is about time the tourist bodies developed a museum here in Tin Can Bay, incorporating the history of the town – the fishing industry and past timber industry, oyster farming and even the less popular industry of farming the dugongs and, of course, our dolphins. The older generation has a lot of information that will be lost with their passing.
See you at the Dolphin Centre!
