CQUni Knows Margie

“My passion for sustainable tourism comes from the desire to look after the Great Barrier Reef and get everybody involved.”

“Professor Prideaux from CQUniversity told me about the sustainable tourism course; there were four units that were to do with sustainability and use of natural resources which exactly fit with my business. We had small classes and lecturers were really well versed in what they were doing. The support was there and they were so flexible working around my work hours.”

“I’m so lucky – I’ve got one of the best careers – I’ve been able to combine my passions and it is my business. I would say that it is probably the best tourism course out there.”
