Tourism operators on the Atherton Tablelands have taken out seven awards at the recent TNQ Tourism Awards on Friday, November 21.
Michael Trout, chair of Tropical Tablelands Tourism, said the region had once again proven itself to be up there with the best taking out some of the biggest categories of the night.
The first award went to Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for excellence in eco tourism, followed by the Historic Village Herberton, which was recognised in the area of heritage and culture.
Taking out the visitor information and services award for the third year in a row was the Kuranda Visitor Information Centre, while the tourist and caravan parks award was given to the Big 4 Atherton Woodlands Tourism Park.
The hosted accommodation award went to Mt Quincan Crater Retreat, while outstanding contribution by a volunteer award went to the Mareeba Heritage Centre.
Picking up a highly commended in the hotly contested category of tour and transport operator was Billy Tea Bush Safaris.
“I would like to sincerely congratulate all winners and finalists at the 2014 TNQ Tourism Awards.
“These awards go to the premier operators within our industry and the dedication and commitment shown by these operators day in and day in, should be held up as a shining light to all Far North Queensland tourism operators – well done.
