The crane hot spring is a popular summer destination in northern Queensland.
Picture: Steve Goggin”A lot of people in the community, when they go out to the water, they have never seen anything like it, so we’ve been inundated with inquiries from families from all over the world,” Mr Williams said.
“There’s been a lot of interest from parents wanting to have their children go and see the water.”
But at the moment, we’re still operating as normal.
“Mr Williams said the crane school has been operating normally since July 1.”
Our primary concern is to make sure we have enough staff to maintain the facilities and make sure that we are providing a safe and comfortable environment for everyone,” he said.
Mr Williams, who also manages the business, said the facility has been successful in the past.”
It’s been an incredible success story,” he told 7.30.”
I think the reason we’ve continued to operate is because we have so many people that have been in the industry for so long and we’re hoping to keep doing that.
“As a result of that, it’s a very good business.”
Mr Williamson said the school had received more than 300 inquiries from around the world.
“We’ve had a lot more inquiries about this school than we’ve had inquiries about other schools,” he explained.
“One of the things that we’re doing is to give families the chance to come and go as they please.”
He said it was the perfect place for your first job.
“People come here from all sorts of different backgrounds, so it’s very different for every family,” he added.
“You can come and get some work experience, or get a job at a local business.”
The crane school operates six hot springs throughout the state and has been a fixture of the city since the early 1980s.
Mr Williamson has also created a training program for crane operators and students.
He said the training program would be running from September to December.
“The first class, the first month of training will be from August to September, and then we’ll have our first full-time class in October, and hopefully that will be the start of a really strong base for us,” he admitted.
