German translation service for tours

QUEENSLAND'S Noosa based eco-tourism operator The Discovery Group has announced the introduction of an on-demand German translation service for clients joining the Fraser Island Discovery tours to World Heritage Listed Fraser Island.  

The new on-demand German language translation service is delivered via iPod technology and is the first international language to be offered by The Discovery Group in recognition of the strong growth from German speaking Europe.  

“We are committed to offering the very best experience of World Heritage Listed Fraser Island, and that means providing all Guests with fun and informative commentary”, said Mr Wade Batty, group managing director of The Discovery Group.  

“Our International business to Fraser Island accounts for over 51% of total bookings and German speaking Europe is unquestionably one of our largest inbound source markets”, confirmed Mr Batty.  

The Discovery Group has proactively pursued the international tourist dollar for the past six years, attending Australia’s premier international travel trade fair Australian Tourism Exchange as well as other trade shows and events both in Australia and abroad.  

Adding this new service to the mix, The Discovery Group is aiming to provide even more reason for international visitors to access World Heritage Listed Fraser Island from Noosa.  

“It is common knowledge the majority of international visitors access Fraser Island from Hervey Bay. Most people are still unaware of the ease in accessing World Heritage Listed Fraser Island from Noosa via the ‘beach highway’, not to mention the spectacular Noosa Everglades wetlands system, one of only a few Everglades regions in the world that sits right on our doorstep”, said Mr Batty.
