Comment on High season caravan occupancy rate: Zero. by Stephanie Capper-Farmer.

Look, better to be safe than sorry. Keep the borders closed for the time being.
I would dearly love to be towing our house on wheels to Alice for our winter sojourn, however commonsense prevails.
Just to shed some light on the tourist dollars, and I will only refer to the grey nomads: They are the majority of visitors in the winter; spend their money at the supermarkets, on caravan park site fees, fuel stations and perhaps some alcohol.
We own a business in Alice so we have a fair idea where the tourist dollars are spent. Thank goodness for our wonderful locals and thank you.
