Feb. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- The smart card was available to all Cairns Regional Council residents for a two month period from 15 November – 15 January and a total of 1128 people took up the option and registered for cards.

Rebecca Ryan said winning the prize had capped off a fantastic trip to the Daintree.
“As locals we’d visited before, but this time we were thrilled to discover the variety of new experiences to try and we didn’t get to do everything so we’ll have to come back.  Not only have we had an excellent holiday in our region, but we plan on reliving it by all the photos we took on the amazing Blue Ray home theatre!” she said.

Tourism Port Douglas & Daintree’s executive officer, Doug Ryan, said Daintree operators had both supported the promotion to show the range of product offered, and benefitted from the exposure.

“The Daintree operators put together three prize packs valued at over $1,000 each showcasing the extensive range of activities on offer here.   This was an excellent incentive to promote the uptake of the trial offer.  So far, we know about half the cards issued have been used to access the Daintree during the two month trial, so the benefits of incoming visitors are still to flow on from this campaign,” he said.  “We’d like to thank Panasonic and Tourism Tropical North Queensland for providing the Blu Ray home theatre system to our winner”.
