Tourism numbers looking good despite eratic weather

JACK Evans Boat Harbour identity Trevor "Big Trev" Arbon has been happy with the tourist numbers this summer despite the up and down weather conditions.

Mr Arbon said it's great to see people from Toowoomba, Ipswich and country NSW coming back to the area because it is a fantastic place and safe for all the young kids to swim.

The renovations of Jack Evans boat harbour are looking great, the dolphins still make their daily visit and the fish feeding still entertains visitors.

Peter Meehan and his family, of Redlands, are just one of the family's coming to the Tweed for the holidays.

Mr Meehan described the tweed as "fantastic and beautiful."

Staying at one of the local resorts, and having a breakfast of pancakes, he said he was taking advantage of all the watercrafts, including catamarans, windsurfers and canoes on offer for a day on the harbour.

Although, one of Mr Meehan's favourite activities for the day was an egg throwing competition with his wife where she ended the day covered with egg.

"Payback," Mr Meehan replied with a smile on his face.
