New Managing Director for DMM

New Managing Director for DMM

Posted: 27-Aug-2018

Iconic tourism destination Dolphin Marine Magic has appointed Mr Terry Goodall as Managing Director after the retirement of Ms Paige Sinclair.

Mr Goodall boasts a successful career in business and tourism, both in Australia and New Zealand, with key leadership roles in AMCAL Chemists, RACV, BIG4 Holiday Parks and most recently, his own tourism business consultancy. Mr Goodall’s track record in building new businesses and reinvigorating established organisations will be invaluable in ensuring the ongoing success of the marine conservation park.

“The history of this organisation, our team’s pride and dedication to the welfare of the animals we care for, the animals themselves who have either been rescued or born here and the significant economic contribution we make to the local community are all strong reasons that attracted me to this role,” said Mr Goodall.

“I want to ensure that Dolphin Marine Magic continues its vital work in marine and animal rescue and rehabilitation, welfare and education, and becomes an even bigger drawcard to Coffs Harbour. I am looking forward to collaborating and partnering with local businesses and other key organisations to help us and to attract more visitors to the Coffs Coast region.”

Now based in Coffs Harbour, Mr Goodall has been a Director on the Board of Dolphin Marine Magic for the past three years but his relationship with the marine park goes back many decades.

Mr Goodall’s uncle, Stanley Hector (Hec) Goodall, founded the Pet Porpoise Pool in 1968. Subsequently, Mr Goodall spent many summer holidays staying with his uncle and helping out around the pool.

“Those early days gave me enormous pride in the important rescue and rehabilitation work to which Hec has dedicated his life,” said Mr Goodall. “I believe that being able to present those magnificent dolphins and the other animals we care for in such an “up-close and personal” experience has given the hundreds of thousands of guests who have visited our park a much greater appreciation for our oceans and marine creatures and other wildlife.”

“One of the most important roles our park plays is raising the awareness of the fragility of our oceanic environments and the need for all of us to do our part in keeping it clean and pristine for its inhabitants. I’m eager to ensure that Dolphin Marine Magic continues this focus for many years to come,” added Mr Goodall.

This was my last visit to The pet Porpoise pool 35 years ago I was 7. we used to go every year when I was little and my grandmother getting kissed by a seal was the highlight of the day. I loved feeding the fairy penguins and my dream is to one day swim with the dolphins. I would love to win passes to marine magic to experience it again with my family. What great memories Katherine, we hope to w..

Our 2 kids under 3 and 5 had great fun watching the dolphins, penguins, turtles and the seal. We arrived around 1.30 as we travelled all the way from Sydney and missed all the big shows but kids still looked so excited just watching the animals play free. Staff were very lovely and caring and they seemed to have real love and passion towards what they do which was great to see. We hope to retu..

My son and I came to visit the park in January, it was my sons second visit to the park we came in 2012 when he was 1, the smile on my son’s face during the show and seeing all the animals was well worth the 5 hour drive to get there, while sitting in the grandstand watching the show I heard about the in the water hugs with the seal so I thought to myself why not and I paid for my 8 years old ..

My wife and I are on a two week working holiday in Coffs Harbour and we are trying to see some of Coffs while we are here. Yesterday we walked from our accommodation to the Jetty Markets and were a little disappointed. Walking back to our resort, we passed the dolphins conservation park. My wife said "Would you like to go and have a look?" I didn't immediately know what the facility was. I was..

Pet porpoise pool holds a special memory for our family. Our 6 year old daughter was thrilled as she had the experience of brushing the dolphin's teeth. And our four month old couldn't have dreamt in his wildest dreams that he was being kissed by a seal! we don't need the pics to remind us of those memories ... they are etched in our minds. It was a brilliant holiday we had at Coffs Harbour , ..
