tasmania tourismTasmania’s tourism industry is once again in the spotlight, this time at the 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards; the industry’s premier national awards program, celebrating and recognising excellence and professionalism. At a gala event held at Hobart’s Princes Wharf 1 on Friday 15 February, Tasmanian tourism operators won eleven accolades, the most ever awarded to the state, including five gold, one silver and five bronze.

In addition, Tasmanian tourism entrepreneur Simon Currant was the very deserving winner of the 2012 Award for Outstanding Contribution by an Individual. With more than 30 years’ experience as a tourism visionary, developer, operator and consultant, Simon has played an integral role in shaping Tasmania’s tourism industry. Simon has been instrumental in the development of some of the island state’s most celebrated tourism experiences including Peppermint Bay and Hobart Cruises, Cradle Mountain Lodge, Franklin Manor, Strahan Village and Gordon River Cruises.

Tourism Tasmania chief executive John Fitzgerald said that last year, Tasmania’s tourism sector had received a number of high profile national and international accolades and awards for the quality of its tourism offerings. “Tasmania’s continued success at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards show that last year’s accolades were well-deserved and that the quality of our tourism continued to go from strength to strength.”

“Right now, Tasmania is capturing the imagination of Australians and international visitors and enhancing its reputation as a diverse, must-see quality destination. Whether it’s to reconnect with nature or awaken the senses with a cultural twist or a luxury escape, I’m confident our visitors will return home after their Tasmanian holiday feeling revitalised and inspired,” he said.

The Tasmanian winners of the 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards are:
Pennicott Wilderness Journeys – won Gold for the Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism Bruny Island Cruises – won Gold in both the Tourist Attractions and Ecotourism award categories
