Disappointed campers not happy with changes at Mother of Ducks

18th Jan 2022

George and Joyce Smith have been frequent visitors to Guyra over the years, choosing to camp alongside the Mother of Ducks Lagoon.
The couple from Minnie Water like to find somewhere nice to stay when they are travelling and had enjoyed their previous stops at Guyra.
However when they called in this week they were disappointed to see that recent changes to the facilities meant that there was only limited space available for campers.
Mr Smith said that on previous visits they had found it quite pleasant and frequently shared the space with a dozen or more other travellers.
“Now there just isn’t enough room to park our van, and this time we won’t be stopping,” George said.
“Usually when we stay somewhere we buy fuel and groceries and visit the shops because we like to support the little towns along the way.”
The couple say they would easily have spent around two hundred dollars when they stopped in Guyra previously, and that the big losers are the businesses they would have supported. What they would like to see is the area reinstated to what they enjoyed in the past.
“We are really disappointed, not just for ourselves but also for the town,” Joyce said. “We were looking forward to another stay in Guyra, but this time we are going to head over to Ebor for the night. It is such a shame because we enjoyed our visits in the past.”
