Horizontal Falls Seaplane Adventures has been nominated as Australia’s top adventure tourism venture 2017. The business won gold in adventure tourism category and bronze in term of unique accommodation at 32nd Australian Tourism Awards ceremony which took place in Darwin on February 24.
The award has been designed to identify and award businesses that have played an instrumental role in quality tourism experiences and products. In the last 18 months, the company won string of awards.
To Owner-operator Troy Thomas, ‘’ It’s very hard to operate remotely and logistics are very high to do what we do over there. We went into the State awards and won gold in categories of unique accommodation and adventure tourism, which then put us in to the national awards which is up against the best of the best in Australia.’’
To quote Glen Chidlow, Australia’s North West chief executive, ‘’ We came out with bronze for unique accommodation, which is itself quite a big achievement because there are some big companies around Australia with unique accommodation … and to win gold in adventure tourism, which is what our specialty is, and to be recognized in Australia for that is a massive achievement.
The operators of Horizontal Falls Adventure Tours do an outstanding job in showcasing one of the Kimberley’s great wonders, and the recognition they’ve achieved at the national awards is well deserved.’’
