Cruise shore excursions in our sights

Visiting from Sydney, a delegation from Intercruises, one of five (5) ground handling companies offering shore excursions to the Cruise industry in Australia, is familiarising themselves with our destination this week.

Hosted by CEO Mary Carroll, this is a direct outcome from attendance at the Australian Cruise Association conference earlier this year.  Capricorn Enterprise is pro-actively demonstrating that we have the right experiences to showcase to the Expedition (i.e. smaller) cruise liners like Silversea (owned by Royal Caribbean) to dock in Keppel Bay, tendering their passengers to both the mainland or Great Keppel Island on shore excursions. 

Our special guests were absolutely impressed by the beauty of Great Keppel Island and the incredible diversity of experiences on offer on the Capricorn Coast.

Working in collaboration with our RTO partner GAPDL (Gladstone Area Promotion Development Ltd), the group continued onto Gladstone and Town of 1770 to inspect experiences suitable for shore excursions for the much larger ships (such as P&O) which can dock at the Gladstone Cruise Terminal.  Sites include the East Shores Precinct, Wards Brewery, Tondoon Botanic Gardens, Boyne Island/Tannum Sands, Calliope Historical Village,  1770 Dive Spear & Sport, Katrina’s Bar, 1770 LARC!

Working with the Australian Cruise Association, we are already planning a dedicated cruise workshop with operators for February 2024 as well as additional famils for other key ground handling companies.
