Goodbye Daintree-Eco Lodge;
Another blow to Australian Tourism has occured this morning.
Well it just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how well you do it, if the crowds wont spend money nothing will keep you afloat.
Tragically the world renowned Daintree Eco Lodge has been put into receivership, certainly not being the first sacrifice of the tourism downturn over the last 5 years, and certainly not the last!
Its sad to see such a unique product, named the world’s best eco spa in the World Travel Awards only last year, has had to go by the wayside. But that’s the state of play in Australian tourism, simple.
Hopefully a buyer will be found and the Daintree eco Lodge will go on, but there certainly isn’t investment in tourism assets in Australia at this point in time. Maybe the Government need to look at Tax breaks, staff incentives, and genuine opportunities for business to survive. but then again, who am I kidding, we are capitalist after all, and we only care about our own hip pocket! (yes a little tongue in cheek).
Sad to see this happen..
