The Douglas Region Tourism Operators Crisis Recovery Strategy has been prepared by Tourism Port Douglas Daintree for the benefit of all participants in our critically important tourism industry sector.
Tourists become a vulnerable group during a disaster, the strategy and operator guidelines address these vulnerabilities. The plans align with the Douglas Shire Council Disaster Management Plan and have been supported by the Local Disaster Management Group.
Past events have proven the need for a strategy that has a strong focus on the recovery phase of any disaster or major event which may impact upon our tourism operators. The quicker we can recover and return to ‘business as usual’ the less the economic impact is to our region and provides increased confidence for our visitors.
As participants in the tourism sector we must all collectively contribute to creating a sustainable economy post-crisis and giving life to our ‘We’re open for business’ mantra.
