Adventure Whitsunday now in Hall of Fame
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.
