Our team finished equal second in the overall competition and doing both Quicksilver Cruises and our Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef region proud. After eight gruelling challenges from building rafts on Green Island to rafting the Barron River their teamwork and communication skills were put to the test against 14 other teams from around the country.

Nicole Richardson, Team Captain and Great Adventures Customer Service Manager said, “It was a fantastic opportunity for us to get together and build on our teamwork skills while at the same showcasing our beautiful region. We would also like to thank Quicksilver for the wonderful experience to participate in this unique event.  We met some great teams and is something we will never forget”.

Tony Baker, Quicksilver Group Managing Director was delighted with the outcome and said, “It was great for staff across the Company to participate in the X Venture Cairns Challenge.  It is not often they receive opportunities like this and they all embraced the concept and have grown personally and professionally from working together.  We were also delighted to host the first two challenges on Green Island.  Our Green Island Resort staff, were instrumental in assisting with the challenges being set up, catering and welcoming over 150 competitors, X Venture staff and film crews to the Island for the first of day of X Venture.”
