Johnny Depp stayed at the bottom of the mountain when they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean. “It’s a very special part of the world and it’s been rebuilt after Cyclone Debbie, but now the tourism industry has taken a knock as there’s no international tourists.” Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 2:09Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -2:09 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

So many of our buyers are working remotely anyway.“Next time there’s a pandemic they will escape the lockdown as things are pretty much normal compared to down south. Rentals are going nuts.
