Joined the team in 2011

I am able to work with wonderful people and I love interacting with the guests, and having a chat about interesting places they have been or are going, and giving them tips as my family and I spent 16 months travelling this beautiful country so it’s perfect for me.

What I love most about being a part of an amazing team, is that every day at work does not feel like work. I get to meet so many people and hear about all of their adventures from both kids I meet in Kids Club and the wise nomads I meed during the wine and cheese afternoons.

I am able to spend my day within a great work environment whose motivation is based solely on creating an unblelievable holiday experience for our guests. It’s very rewarding and encourages a brilliant team spirit. (Not a hard place to be!!)

I know it sounds like a cliché but it’s being part of ‘one big family’ when you come to work, it’s a very happy place to be at. It very much stems from the top with the McKinnon family and just filters through the staff from there. Everyone is happy to be at work and it shows.

I really love working for Adventure Whitsunday because everyday is different! I never know what the day is going to bring, no day is ever the same. Working amongst beautiful tranquil gardens with a supportive crew on hand sure does make every working day a pleasure. With the new Waterslide Park and new cabins it sure is an exciting and busy time to be in maintenance!
