MEDIA RELEASE | MAJOR QUEENSLAND TOURISM INDUSTRY BODIES COLLABORATE FOR LONG-TERM INDUSTRY SUSTAINABILITY
Nature-based tourism operators in Queensland are being given a boost this month thanks to a new agreement between long-term industry partners, Ecotourism Australia (EA) and the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) to cross-recognise each other’s certification programs.
The 2015 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards Gala Night took place last Friday, with some of Australia’s best tourism operators on display. Ecotourism Australia was thrilled to see 38 of our members represented, taking home 17 well-earned awards, and making up 22% of all award winners.
Ecotourism Australia would like to wish the best of luck to all 38 of our members who have made it through as finalists in the 2015 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards!
Over the past four weeks, the winners of State Tourism Awards have been announced at gala nights across the country and Ecotourism Australia (EA) has been thrilled to see our members make up 25% of winners in eligible categories. Fifty one (51) EA members, making up over 10% of EA’s total membership base, took home seventy one (71) awards this year. A remarkable result with better than one in ten members of Ecotourism Australia being acknowledged as winners at the State Tourism Awards.
Winners of the 2014 Annual Queensland Tourism Awards were announced recently and Ecotourism Australia would like to congratulate all winners. We were ecstatic to see the large number of Ecotourism Australia certified operators to take home awards, with approximately half of all awards in applicable categories going to our members.
