At a black-tie event hosted in the Whitsundays this weekend, Abell Point Marina were once again named Major Tourist Attraction for the region. The 2018 Whitsunday Tourism Awards was supported by over 370 tourism operators, employees and industry stakeholders gathering to celebrate the achievements of the region’s tourism operators and service providers.
Shining the spotlight on the Whitsunday tourism industry, Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones was in attendance. Ms Jones said in her welcome speech that the Whitsundays was vital to ensuring the growth of the Queensland’s tourism economy.
“I know the judges had a particularly tough time this year judging the overall winners. This is a testament to the quality of tourism offerings we have in the Whitsundays,” she said.
Since opening in May 2017, Hemingway’s has developed a strong reputation for innovative food and attentive service in a stunning waterfront setting. Attaining its first Chef Hat (Australian Good Food Guide) in January 2018, Hemingway’s was also a finalist in the Savour Australia Queensland awards in August. The focus now shifts to the 2018 Queensland Tourism Awards on the Gold Coast in November.
In addition to Hemingway’s gold, Abell Point Marina won Major Tourist Attraction for the third consecutive year, entering the Hall of Fame.
Joscelyn O’Keefe, Marketing Manager Abell Point Marina explains “We are delighted to win Major Tourist Attraction for the third consecutive year. The marina is also home to many of the award-winning operators who were also recognised with awards this year. Red Cat Adventures, Whitsunday Jetski Tours, Cumberland Charter Yachts, Whitsundays Escape, Ocean Rafting, Derwent Hunter and Airlie Beach Day Sailing all received awards and their products all contribute to the vibrant destination marina we are developing at Abell Point. For Hemingway’s to also take out gold, after only one year in the business, was an incredible achievement for our entire team!”
