The Qantas Award for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Tourism recognises tourism operations that demonstrate authenticity and cultivate a greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and traditions.

Mossman Gorge Centre has now been the Gold award winner in this category three times: in 2018, 2016 and 2014. 

Ocean Safari won silver in the Tour & Transport Operators category while Mossman Gorge was awarded bronze in the Qantas Award for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Tourism.

Ocean Safari, who offer an exhilarating ride to snorkel the pristine untouched Great Barrier Reef off the Daintree Coast at Cape Tribulation, and the pristine Mossman Gorge have won awards at the 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards which were held recently in Launceston.

Daniel Gschwind, chair of the Australian Tourism Awards, congratulated all the winners and finalists from across Australia.

“To reach the finalists stage of the Australian Tourism Awards is a great honour in itself and all finalists should be immensely proud of their efforts,” he said.

“The winners from this event truly are the best of the best, with a lot of strong competition across all categories.

“Those that have taken home the trophy have been honoured for their hard work, innovation and commitment to quality, which contributes to the ongoing success of our $55.3 billion tourism industry.

“It is businesses like these that drive the growing contribution that tourism makes to the economy and communities right across Australia.”
