Underwater camera rental business for sale. ZERO OVERHEADS!

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

It’s finally time! What a terrific opportunity for someone else to take advantage of the almost eight years of hard work that we have put into building Cairns Digital…

Underwater camera rental business for sale. Established seven years with regular referrers.

Imagine a business which has NO OVERHEADS. Live in the tropics on the doorstep to the Great Barrier Reef and make money from the very first day! Turn over $10,000 a month (average over the last two years) from your home office, with no commercial premises necessary, no franchise fees, no staff, no specialized vehicle and no fixed costs at all.

Can be run on a daily basis by one person, but as the business operates seven days a week, it’s more comfortable if there are two people each working part time, or at least a backup person to support the main operator.

It has long been our plan that we would sell this successful and profitable business at the beginning of 2015, when our son starts school. The business keeps me busy for a couple of hours in the early mornings and a few hours in the evenings, which has been perfect over the past five years, as it has allowed me plenty of time during the day to spend quality time with my little boy. But now that he has started school, it is time to hand over the reins to a fresh, motivated operator who can take this established business to the next level.

Profitable as it is, there is plenty of potential for growth under an energetic operator.

$135,000 wiwo, including :

·         22 late model cameras with housings and accessories

·         Six 40” LCD TV screens displayed in strategic locations around Cairns

·         Range of professional accessories (strobes, lenses etc)

·         25 embroidered uniform shirts in a range of sizes

·         Promotional items on hand (flyers, business cards etc)

·         Consumables on hand (cable ties, spare batteries, $1000 worth of SD cards etc)


The best ribs in Cairns!

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

It’s not a competition, folks, unless there is more than one contender. And there’s not. If you’ve got a hankering for the best ribs in Cairns you just need to head down to Waterbar and Grill at the Pier.

If my body could handle the calories, I would eat there every day of the year. And I reckon the little fella would be happy to join me…

Cairns Aboriginal cultural attractions

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

One of the great things about living in Cairns (besides the fact that we have beautiful beaches, gorgeous islands, the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s oldest rainforest, and year round warm weather) is that Cairns is a tourist mecca, attracting literally millions of visitors every year. This means that there is no end to the fun you can have here… if you’ve got the time…

Maria and I have been fortunate to visit a vast number of Cairns tourist attractions in the years we have been in the far north, and have enjoyed many of the activities on offer, adventurous and otherwise :)

Recently we have the pleasure of enjoying Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park . Maria had been before but this was the first time either of us had visited for their evening dinner show.

There was an introductory show in the indoor theatre, then a terrific dance and fire starting show outside on the banks of the river, cluminating in a burning spear being thrown right across the river. Then dinner which was fantastic, with seafood, a selection of hot meats and veges, salads, soups and delicious desserts. And then another show in the dining room!

If you’re planning on visiting, please keep in mind that the dinner is quite late (about 8:30pm?) and I want to extend a special thankyou to the dining room staff who allowed Nico to come in and grab a couple of morsels from the buffet to tide him over until dinner officially commenced. He appreciated it greatly. And if he’s happy, we’re free to enjoy the show…
