Tourist money flow from Devil's Woodyard volcano

Once re­gard­ed as a curse in the com­mu­ni­ty of In­di­an Walk, the Dev­il's Wood­yard mud vol­cano is now con­sid­ered a bless­ing.

Over $60,000 in fees from vis­i­tors have been raised by Princes Town Re­gion­al Cor­po­ra­tion.

Its been one year since the vol­cano erupt­ed in Princes Town send­ing more than 24,000 tonnes of vol­canic mud spew­ing up in­to the air.

Since its erup­tion on Feb­ru­ary 13 last year, the site has at­tract­ed thou­sands of lo­cal and in­ter­na­tion­al tourists.
