Adventure Whitsunday wins Australian Tourism Awards

Australian Tourism Award Winners

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort in Airlie Beach is thrilled to have won the top award in the category “Tourist and Caravan Parks” at the Australian Tourism Awards in Hobart on Friday 15 February 2013. 

Owners Greg and Naomi McKinnon said, “after winning the 2012 Whitsunday and Queensland Tourism Awards, this is the greatest honour for us. We would like to thank our whole team for delivering constantly superb customer service and making the little things count every day. We know that if you believe in your staff, they will be passionate about looking after your guests and your product.”

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday was up against stiff competition from all States however they believe the qualities that make them the number one park in Australia include consistent quality service, a focus on the customer, looking after their staff and being flexible and innovative. Six out of the seven finalists were from the BIG4 group of parks, confirming the quality and the general level of excellence across the brand.

Naomi McKinnon said, “it is reassuring in this era of large corporate hospitality chains that people recognise the benefits of a well-run family owned and operated business and that Australians still like to seek out home-grown holidays that reflect the easy and enjoyable Australian lifestyle.”

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort has been in the McKinnon family for 19 years and they have taken it from a half-star property to an award winning one through hard work, commitment, continual investment and a passion for the product, people and the industry.
