We've just heard the great wews from Cruise Whitsundays Hardy Reef!

Images taken 14 June on their Great Barrier Reef Adventure show that, if you look closely, you can see the coral is growing with new buds forming on the branching coral!  

The coral is still looking colourful and the marine life are abundant.

Mondo Travel has continued its association with the Tasman Makos by committing to the “Makos 500 Club” in 2017.

The Makos 500 Club was introduced in 2014 when the team was promoted to the Premiership division of the Mitre 10 Cup. The membership monies are earmarked for the team support staff expenses. The Makos 500 Club has enabled the appointment of the very best coaching team, physio, doctor and strength & conditioning coach possible. The 2016 coaching team of Leon MacDonald & Andrew Goodman has been enhanced, in 2017, with the appointment of Leo Crowley & Greg Somerville as assistant coaches.

Since joining the Premiership, the Makos have achieved significant success – 2 x Runner-up and 1 x 3rd placing – a tremendous result for one of the newest, and smallest, unions in the country.

Like the many businesses and individuals in the Nelson/Marlborough region (and supporters throughout the country), Mondo are "delighted to be contributing to the success of the Tasman Makos (through the Makos 500 Club) in 2017,“ said Mondo Travel Chief Executive, Tony Terrill.
