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..

My mum and I just spend the whole weekend at Pet Porpoise Pool, we travel from Tweed to Coffs just to see Buck and Zip, we love them and can't get enough. Already driven down 3 times this year, and every time it's amazing. And we loved seeing all 5 dolphins in the pool, Bella's a sneaky little thing! We got drenched by her plenty of times hahaha. Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves - Paige S..

It was the most amazing experience. Your staff looked after our assistance dog at the front counter and she happily slept the whole time we were in the park. We found the shows to be so educational and informative of marine conservation and the size of the park was perfect for our children (both have autism) to be able to cope. We had booked in for a meet the seal and a shallow swim with the d..

Omg, what can I say except what an amazing experience we had on our visit. My 3 girls and I did a shallow water dolphin experience and it was the best! The trainer was very informative and so good with the kids. The kids played games with the dolphin, fed it and had photos. The funniest was my youngest who played the game where she splashed the dolphin and then it splashed her back 20 times as..

On Wednesday 10th April My husband and I bought our 4 year old grandaughter to your park. It was the best place that we could have bought her to. She learned so much in a smaller environment without the distractions of all the crowds and rides. Even at 4 she is passionate about keeping our oceans clean for our wildlife. She loved that she could interact with some of the animals and get to hand..

I turned 50 in August and I used the money from my family and friends to tick off 2 of my bucket list, to touch a seal and a dolphin. My dreams came to when I booked myself into being ‘’Trainer for the Day”, I blew my mind as I got to see everything from behind the park and how well looked after each animal, I got to walk seals an their exercise, participate in the show (I was so excited I for..
