Discreet? brothel opens soon
By ALLAN McNEILallanm@gladstoneobserver.com.au
A DISCREET unassuming build- ing is set to become Gladstone's first legal brothel and may be open as early as next month.
Situated in the Callemondah airport industrial estate, the brothel will be called Whispers in Paradise and construction is all but complete.
Brothel owner Rhonda Daw- son said everything was ap- proved and work was con- tinuing.
"Everything is all approved and I am hoping we will be open by mid-December.''
Ms Dawson said she had al- ready lined up a number of girls from places such as the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and Sydney to work in the brothel.
"There are quite a few girls who want to come up and work there. They won't be from Glad- stone, they will just come up, work and then return home,'' Ms Dawson said.
It seems the discreet nature of the concrete-rendered building fits in with Ms Dawson's unob- trusive nature. "Most people won't even know it's there, we will just open very discreetly and open only at night at the start,'' Ms Dawson said.
"It will be very tasteful and different from what people are used to down south.''
Ms Dawson said one final in- spection was required by the gov-ernment for health regulations before the brothel opened.
Ms Dawson said she had been quietly working towards build- ing the brothel for a number of years.
A Prostitution Licencing Authority spokesperson confirmed yesterday Whispers in Paradise had been approved and would open soon.
