Two local businesses were recognised at the North Queensland Tourism and Events Awards for their contribution to the North’s tourism industry.
Herveys Range Heritage Tea Rooms was nominated in the ‘Dining’ category and Texas Longhorns Tours was nominated in the ‘Tours and Attractions’ category.
The Awards have been established to allow the industry to recognise the people, organisations and events that offer superior tourism experiences for visitors in the North.
The Awards included 6 People’s Choice categories which allowed the community to vote for their favourite tourism operators.
Texas Longhorn Tours took home the ‘Tours and Attractions’ award, being recognised as providing the most exceptional visitor experience.
Councillor Julie Mathews, whose portfolio includes Tourism, said it was fantastic two local attractions were nominated.
“I want to congratulate Herveys Range Heritage Tea Rooms for being nominated this year and Texas Longhorns Tours for winning the Tours and Attractions award.
“It is such an honour for them to have the recognition for all they do to contribute to our tourism industry.
“North Queensland has so much to offer and it’s great to see organisations within our region being recognised along with all the other great tourism operators,” said Cr Mathews.
