TOUR UPDATES

Seeking a business loan to get the business back up and going. Genuine enquiries only please. NO SCAMMERS. I am over them.

Due to losing to much revenue over the last 12 months from lost tours because of not being able to get finance to purchase my own 4wd bus (the buses i was hiring cannot legally tow the kayak trailer weight wise, (i put the trailer on the bridge), and the next size bus is $350/day to hire, plus the banks wont give a Chattell Mortgage using the bus as security, which is what a Chattell Mortgage is, but instead want bricks'n'mortar security, (which my share of a unit was sold to get the business going)), and with the Government more concerned with giving to overseas aid, than  really helping Australian Small Business, even as a guarantor???,  then the business has had to temporarily SHUT DOWN. I have tried everywhere to obtain finance but to no avail, and will continue to try. However, if you know of an avenue to help a Small Business with a Small Business loan, please let me know.  Sorry for any inconvenience. Outa my hands. Would prefer a financier for a Small Business loan, (to purchase a bus and get the business back up and going), but will also consider a Business Partner. Financials (incl Accountants report) are available on request. Please also sign my petition for more support from the Government for Small Business. See above.

After the Half Day and Full Day Tours, and if you are feeling hungry, I am pleased to also offer, in conjunction with Irish Finnegans Bistro, a meal (from off their lunch menu only) and a cold beverage for only $10. Available for lunch or dinner.
