Ecotourism Australia certified operators took home more gold awards than any state at Friday night’s Qantas Australian Tourism Awards in Canberra.
Ecotourism Australia certified operators have once again cleaned up at this year’s 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, taking home over a quarter of all awards including six gold, nine silver and six bronze.
If Ecotourism Australia were a state, it would have come second in Friday night’s 2017 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards tally in Perth, proving that ecotourism is more than just a niche industry in Australia.
It is that time of year again - nominations are opening for State Tourism Awards across the country!
If you’re nominating for awards this year, be sure to keep an eye on the key dates in your State and take advantage of any workshops and resources available to you.
Ecotourism Australia would like to wish the best of luck to all 28 of our eco certified members and Protected Area Manager (PAMs) members who have made it through as finalists in the 2016 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards! The awards take place in Darwin this Friday night, 24 February.
We are very pleased to announce that 63 awards at the recent 2016 State Tourism Awards were won by our eco certified members and operators (some members won multiple awards!). Over the last couple of weeks each state has hosted their 2016 National Tourism awards night, selecting one gold winner and in some cases silver and bronze medallists in an array of different categories such as Major Tourist Attractions, Cultural Tourism, Adventure Tourism and last but not least, Ecotourism.
Ecotourism Australia wishes good luck to all our certified members who have entered their State’s annual tourism awards. We will be thinking of you and cheering you along as the awards all take place during November. Please ensure you ‘share’ your news and photos with us.
