Awards are a feather in the cap of a tourism operation and they recognise the hard work done by the members. This is especially so when it is a Not for Profit, all volunteer, self funded operation such as ours.
The Fraser Coast & South Burnett Tourism Awards are a major recognition of the quality and professionalism of an organisation.
Much preparation goes into a submission for major awards. It can take around three months of preparation.
The dedication of our members shows in the fact that we have won three times in succession and then were inducted into the Hall of Fame in the fourth year. Our standards of presentation and professionalism are always at the top level.
The favourable comments from our visitors are most gratifying to us and reflect the hard work of our volunteers.
On Australia Day 2015, we were awarded an Australia Day Community Event award for our 40th Birthday event run in 2014. Major events like this require extensive planning and organisation and the co operation of many of our members. Needless to say, this is always forthcoming with the members dressing in period costume for the day to provide authenticity.
In 2018 we won another award. The 2018 Business & Tourism Awards saw us win the category of Not for Profit & Charities.
We were listed in the Top 3 Landmarks for Hervey Bay in 2019.
Congratulations to all our members.
