After twenty years of welcoming thousands of tourists, visitor services guide Terri Ebbett has decided it’s time to farewell the tingles and the Tree Top Walk.
Terri is recognized by her peers as a leader in the field of tour guiding and has delivered many memorable visitor experiences at one of the State’s most successful tourism attractions.
Parks and Wildlife Service Tree Top Walk business manager Julie Ross said Terri’s commitment and dedication to the Tree Top Walk and its team has been exemplary and she has been a fantastic role model and ambassador for the Department.
“There is always plenty of laughter when Terri is around telling her local knowledge and funny tales to visitors,” Julie said.
“Terri has run daily guided tours through the Ancient Empire, delivered tours to coach and school groups and guided a range of activities, for all age groups, during the school holiday periods.
“Terri’s guiding experiences are not her only forte, she has been involved with many interviews with overseas media and hosted famous people and charmed them with her wonderful personality and sense of humour.
“She passionately demonstrated the quintessential skills that make an effective guide such as sensitivity, subject knowledge, humor and empathy towards the public.
“Terri has a special gift in connecting with visitors in an unsurpassed way.
“We will all miss Terri’s involvement at the Tree Top Walk but it’s now Terri’s turn to enjoy being a visitor across the State when she travels north to spend time with her great, grandchild and her extended family.”
Along with the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the Tree Top Walk team wish Terri every enjoyment and happiness on her next adventure.
