I have a friend who is looking to expand his business by offering Hovercraft tours around Lake Burley Griffin. It is felt that it would be a wonderful attraction for tourists and family outings. A small Hovercraft will also add an interesting backdrop to the lake, which arguably can be perceived as fairly bland to a proportion of residents. The Hovercraft is extremely quiet, as not to be intrusive to citizens not interested in such a form of entertainment, plus it will help utilize a fairly under used attraction of Canberra that is the lake. It is felt by many that Canberra could use far more attractions than what is currently available, as long as they don’t impact on the day to day lives of other Canberra citizens. As a result, such a venture can only make a percentage of Canberra citizens happier, and help tourism, bringing money into the capital, all of which is positive. As for environmental impact, the same company has been approved for use at the Great Barrier Reef, one of the most beautiful and delicate natural structures in the world.
What do people think about the concept of Hovercraft tours on the lake? I’m very interested in people’s opinions plus any opinion on adding even more eclectic forms of entertainment within the nations capital, so that a wider range of our citizens have the ability to enjoy themselves. Over the years family events have been cancelled, but never replaced with an alternative. Replacing said events can only make people and families happier, which can only benifit the city and people’s outlook on life!
