Kinnon and Co won the gold award in the Cultural Tourism category at the 2016 Queensland Tourism Awards (QTA) held in Brisbane on 11 November.
It follows our top honours in the Cultural Tourism and Standard Accommodation categories at the previous week’s Outback Queensland Tourism Awards.
Richard Kinnon, said everyone at Kinnon & Co is delighted to receive these recent awards and to be recognised as leaders in creating unique tourism experiences and accommodation for Queensland.
“We do our best to give guests an outstanding experience of our outback life and heritage, and it’s great to be recognised amongst such strong competition from throughout Queensland,” Richard said.
“Of course our most important judges are our visitors and we’re only happy if they’re all giving us gold too!
“It’s was also really exciting that so many outback Queensland operators received awards as it will encourage our city cousins and tourists to leave the coast and head west for a holiday.
“We congratulate Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum, Cobbold Gorge and the other outback operators who also won and helped highlight some of the treasures we have here in the outback,” Richard said.
