Graham and I have been managing Dunk Island View Caravan Park for a year and in that time we have developed some great friendships, so it was a very hard decision to make to leave. We left on Wednesday 11th April and arrived home safe and sound.
Our main reason for returning to Brisbane was because of family. My Dad has recently gone into a nursing home in Brisbane and he has missed us terribly. Just seeing the look on his face and the accompanying tears was enough for us to know that we’d made the right choice. Our children and grandchildren are absolutely ecstatic to have us home again. We’re a very close family so to be back amongst them again is fantastic.
I’d like to thank our good friends Anne and John Herbert who own the park, for giving us such a great opportunity to learn new skills and had the confidence in us to manage the park successfully. We’ve had a long and enduring friendship and that will continue in the years to come.
Our working life was spent with some amazing people such as Julie, Lisa, Michelle, Chloe, Hazel, John Pender, and in the last week the two new managers Sue van Wessem and Shaun Lambert. I cannot thank these friends enough for all their help and support over the past year. They are special people and we will miss them terribly. Sue and Shaun are lovely people and I’m sure that they will make your visit very memorable.
We were so happy to see in our last week there, a Cassowary with 3 chicks. They’re very elusive so to see one just before we left was priceless. We will miss FNQ and the people we’ve met and we’re so glad we accepted the offer to work there.
Graham and Sue Denny
