Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day now in Hall of Fame

Whitsunday Times - - 2013 WHITSUNDAY TOURISM AWARDS -

BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day Re­sort is cel­e­brat­ing win­ning for the 18th time in the 2013 Whit­sun­day Tourism Awards.

They were also in­ducted into the Hall of Fame for win­ning the cat­e­gory for three con­sec­u­tive years.

This was the first award cer­e­mony for the sea­son and leads into the Queens­land and Aus­tralian Tourism Awards in the com­ing months.

The multi-award win­ning re­sort scooped all lev­els of awards last year – win­ning on lo­cal, state and na­tional plat­forms.

BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day Re­sort has seen sig­nif­i­cant growth in 2013 and has just be­gun an ex­cit­ing phase of de­vel­op­ment with a new multi-pur­pose con­fer­ence fa­cil­ity, The Palm House.

The re­sort is for­ever evolv­ing and grow­ing to meet the de­mands of many dif­fer­ent mar­kets.

Greg and Naomi McKin­non at­tended the Whit­sun­day award cer­e­mony with their three chil­dren and were de­lighted to again ac­cept the award for Tourist and Car­a­van Parks.

Naomi McKin­non said it is valu­able to be judged by your in­dus­try peers and to get to­gether and cel­e­brate with all the other lo­cal op­er­a­tors who strive daily to achieve best prac­tice and to en­sure peo­ple vis­it­ing the Whit­sun­days have a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We take the busi­ness of pleas­ing peo­ple very se­ri­ously and I be­lieve it is largely due to our pro­fes­sional staff and the level of ser­vice they of­fer that al­lows us to de­liver such a fan­tas­tic hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said.

“We are so proud of our won­der­ful prod­uct, the hard work we have done, how far we have come and the awards we have won in that time. Valu­ing our team is an im­por­tant part of our suc­cess and I would like to pub­licly thank them all for de­liv­er­ing an ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery day of the year.”

2013 was a par­tic­u­larly spe­cial year for Big4 as it was 20 years since the McKin­non fam­ily bought the park.

FAM­ILY AF­FAIR: Whit­sun­day Times man­ag­ing ed­i­tor Leanne Aber­nethy pre­sented Greg and Naomi McKin­non and their chil­dren Josh, Molly and Jack with the Tourist and Car­a­van Park award at the Whit­sun­day Tourism Awards night on Satur­day.
