CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 3 - July 9, 1998 - 65 Rehoboth Australia expert knows whatS up Down Under Nancy S. Grimm, local expert on Australia, knows how to find the best safaris in Kakadu and the best sunsets at Uluru. A certified Aussie specialist travel agent with TravelDesk/Aussiebound Tours, Grimm recently returned from Brisbane, Australia, where she participated in the first Worldwide Aussie Specialist Convention and Exhibition. The four-day conference, host- ed by the Australian tourist com- mission, attracted more than 300 travel agents from throughout the world. The program included seminars Pfiesteria Continued from page 61 have nothing to do with going in the water. Thirdly, don&apos;t second guess public officials when they say there is a concern. "We do not want finger pointing or second- guessing," he said. Such complaints look like the equivalent of shooting the mes- senger and they make your busi- ness look unresponsive and un- concerned with public health. Fourthly, don't put up with bad information. While he suggested not second guessing officials, he also urged businesses to write let- on Australian travel prod- ucts, services and tech- niques. Planning creative itin- eraries for the special inter- est traveler - food and GRIMM wine loyers, ecoadventurists, millennium cele- brators and those attending the Sydney 2000 Olympics - was part of the conference. "The convention afforded me ters and to make sure newspapers and other sources of information give accurate, not misleading, in- formation about Pfiesteria. Fifthly, he suggested spoofing the issue if appropriate. As long as no one has been hurt, he suggested that a little fun like an" I survived Pfiesteria" shirt or a "Pfiesteria Cocktail" creation may be in or- der. Finally, he stressed the need for good communication - with mem- bers of the public - with employ- ees - and with health officials. He closed with a quote from the famous Paul Newman movie "Cool Hand Luke" as he said that "what we have here is a failure to communicate." the opportunity to see first-hand, the latest Australian product infor- mation to ensure that my clients experience the finest vacation Down Under," Grimm noted. "I think it is very reassuring for a client to know that I have been there and am familiar with the country and my product." Grimm has successfully com- pleted a series of educational pro- grams to gain her certification. A specialist since 1996, thfs was Grimm's second convention, which was by invitation only. Grimm recently relocated to Re- hoboth Beach, having vacationed there since she was a child, as did her parents and grandparents. From her home, she works to fashion individualized trips hand- in-hand with the top wholesalers in the country, most of which are staffed with Australians. When it's summer in North America, it's winter in Australia. While any season is a great time to head Down Under, Grimm said that there are many special rates now available and the agency is offering a number of Quantas Col- lection packages. Snowbird packages "We have 'snowbird' packages designed to escape the winter blues in January and Februarythat include a condo and some golf privileges," she said, adding that even the millennium package is one quarter sold. Grimm went on to note that as Australia is about the same size as the United States, one must take the time to absorb the culture and scenery, which is different in vari- ous areas of the country. So, for those who can only spend a cou- ple of weeks in the country, Grimm advises focusing on a par- ticular area, such as the "out- back." She believes in the slogan that "You haven't been Down Under until you've been Outback!" "My job is to educate the client and then fine-tune the trip to suit each individual. Safaris are very big right now - the best part is that just outside the cities many of the roads are only accessible by 4-wheel drive," Grimm said, adding that "walka- bouts" with members of the Abo- rigine tribe are also sought. Grimm prides herself in that she has traveled extensively in the country, where her daughter and son-in-law now reside, and can recommend restaurants, accom- modations and itineraries first- hand. Her travels to Australia began in 1993 and she has traveled throughout Tasmania, Victoria and the Great Ocean Road and the East Coast, including the Great Continued on page 70 i I I i <" T T00AM TO HANDLE .ALL OF YOUR 1/gAL ESTATE NEEDS REHOBOTH BEACH GARDENS 3 BR, 2 1/2 BA townhome being sold furnished.
